New Chipping Program

New Chipping Program

As part of a new pilot program, Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Jersey plans to implant 280 patients suffering from chronic diseases with microchips containing their medical data. It is hoped that the rice-sized implants will help doctors avoid errors, such as duplicating medical tests. The microchips would also allow emergency room staff to access a patient's medical records should the individual be unable to communicate. Read the complete AP article at LiveScience.com(1).
