I stumbled upon this old article from 2004 on MSNBC about installing chips in patients’ arms. True or not, I think it is an interesting thing if this is really being considered. The U.S is behind in it’s medical record keeping, while EU countries use a card to track patient medical history, and this article discusses an attempt to stand at the forefront of technology by using implanted chips, instead of the vital card.
