This reminds me of the new injury coding thingy they introduced last year in hospitals: the thing was incredibly detailed, with phone books’ worth of codes for anything and everything, all to be inputted by ER staff, a walk in clinic or a family physician, creating an incredibly accurate image of a patient’s history.

This level of standardization isn’t necessary. At all. Until you consider that this is exactly what the foundation work for automated medicine would look like.

This system is just another step on that path.
