Gallant:

Doctors will order duplicate tests less because they have all the results available to them. The chance of adverse medicine interactions decreases as each prescriber knows the other prescriber’s medicines. Doctors can improve their practice as they get feedback from quality indicators.

It’s our responsibility as free citizens to protect our privacy. We have to put safeguards to keep administrators or officials from accessing the data without court orders.
