Submission + - Storing medical records on an obsolete system makes it expensive to get copies.. (bbc.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: In Britain, where it is custom and practice to charge around £10 for a copy of your medical results, a patient has discovered that his copy will cost him £2,000 because the records are stored on an obsolete system that the current IT systems cannot access. Can this be good for patient care if no-one can access records dating back from a previous filing system? Perhaps we need to require all current systems to store data in a way that is vender independent, and DRM free too?
