To the Editor.—  The article, "Ambulatory Care Medical Records" (234:1245, 1975), should be a warning to all physicians. It came from the Harvard Center for Community Health and was written by one physician and two nonphysicians. Of the seven paragraphs, four of them had nothing to do with patient care but were only to give third parties information. It is part of any federally run national health scheme that everything is known about every physician.I would strongly urge that a private practitioner determine for himself whether or not this information will improve the health of his individual patient.
