A new computer memory using a laser beam to impress dimples on a standard credit card has been devised which contains about 2 million bytes (700 typed pages) and which has been formatted with software to permit access to a complete medical record which can be carried by the patient and updated at each encounter with the health care system. The system has been tested in an outpatient clinic with considerable success.
