this information should be disseminated by healthcare providers. i know in canada the information gets pooled, so you have a record of all the hospitals/doctors you've visited and any hospitals/doctors in the province are able to get easy access to prior information.
the radiotag chip is what we put in pets so they can be found if they get lost. i sure as hell wouldn't want one just for privacy reasons.
