A medical application for a plan B network system
The TED talk was about a fail-safe network that would (perhaps temporary) replace the internet in case it fails.
But I was wondering if it would be practical to create a communication network system not using the internet just for security reasons.
(versus using something like a VPN network service)
The reason I put "A medical application" in the title is that what I have in mind is exchanging medical/dental records and X ray images and the like between hospitals.
I believe that there is a need for such a system.
I live in Japan, but I heard that dental records helped identify the deceased in the earthquake in 2011. Had the records in the local dental offices survived, we would probably have been able to identify more people.
And for daily purposes, we would be able double-check what kind of medication the patient is on.
So is this a good idea, or just plain stupid?
Give me some thoughts. Thanks in advance.
