Patient medical history in an implanted chip
New York - A reputed insurance company has devised a chip that can be implanted into a patient's arm, which is capable of recording medical histories. This will assist the medical personnel to easily get hold of patients' medical data.

Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Jersey have launched the program to test this product, which will go a long way in bringing down the chances of medical mistakes.

The chip can be interpreted with the use of an instrument designed to read the recorded data.
