Most people in Florida and elsewhere own a cellphone and keep it with them at all times. While we may enjoy being easily accessible and being able to contact others at a moment's notice, cellphone use can sometimes be dangerous. This is especially true when a person tries to use a cellphone while driving.
As technology improved over the ages, and the use of computers became increasingly common. Thus, health care professionals in Florida and across the nation, backed by a law passed by the federal government, moved from keeping paper medical records to keeping electronic health records. The idea was that electronic records would reduce medical errors, and they would provide patients with a portable system in which they could easily share their medical history with any other health care provider -- something that could prove invaluable in a life-threatening emergency.
