How can patient data be made fully portable between institutions with current data standards and what needs to be done with future standards?

I think the Canadian healthcare industry needs to devote more resources into creating a truly standard data exchange policy that can be universal from facility to facility

The advent of the Ipad and other tablet PC's has answered the question regarding HOW data can be made fully portable. As it relates to the idea of fully portable between institutions, I believe it will be some time until the sophistication of data standards here in Canada are at a level that patients and facilities feel comfortable security wise.
