French Medicine

Ian Morrison: “Carte Vitale. The French have a ubiquitous electronic smart card called Carte Vitale that contains basic health information on the patient. It is really a portable electronic health record and insurance card. Doctors also swipe it through a card reader for billing purposes.”

I picked the above snippet because my brother, Jay, is a medical professional and is interested in stuff like this, but this article goes way beyond that. Read the entire article. It’s pretty darned interesting and foreign to most Americans.

I’ve been saying it for years, Americans don’t know how to live.

Wonder if I can get my lovely wife to move to France? Probably not.
