									Over 200,000 people die each year due to a lack of access to their medical histories by the doctors who serve them, sometimes in the most critical moments. We assume doctors anywhere can pull up our charts and histories no matter where we have had care, no matter where we are. The truth is most doctors have no access to this most important information; what one doctor knows about you, others do not. Technology is just one part of the problem, but fortunately, there are modern-day pioneers who are working to establish The Health Information Exchange. They battle national policy, work on issues of connectivity and information sharing, and all the while address matters of privacy. No Matter Where explores the complexities of development that have to be addressed, from the technological challenges to the adoption of practice by participants all along the informational path.

"Still, this is an important topic that deserves widespread attention. Recommended." - Video Librarian
