Health Data Management | Rx Records in Pocket, Purse"About 75 patients in North Carolina and New York will carry their medication history with them while participating in pilot programs of flash drive devices.

The patients will download to a flash drive their medication history from a secure Web site. Electronic prescription networking vendor SureScripts, Alexandria, Va., will compile the histories from patient data at participating pharmacies, including Brooks Eckerd, Kerr Drug, Rite Aid, Stop & Shop, and Walgreens. The flash drive also will store patient demographic and insurance information.

Patients can give the flash drive to clinicians to plug in a computer and access the data, which could include additional medical information inputted by the patient. The pilot project is using the Personal HealthKey flash drives of Newtown, Pa.-based CapMed, and embedded with the vendor’s personal health records software."
