With respect to you Mr. Magnabosco, I'm not sure what alternative reality you live in, but more often than not in the real world, things do not work with the "wonderfulness" you seem to be describing.
Case in point... Many years ago I had a blood test that was skewed and presented a false reading on my sugar levels. To my ultimate shock, I was then labeled "diabetic" even though I was tested again (the next day) and things were in fact perfectly normal.
This mislabeling chased me for SEVEN years. All my doctors, my insurance providers, and many ancillary providers now saw me as a diabetic. My life insurance went up, and not only that, I could not get all the coverage I wanted - the company would not provide that to a "diabetic".
I spent months and months, and finally YEARS trying to get this one test, ONE reading, removed from medical history. Everytime I contacted health providers I was told "Sorry, we cannot remove that without..." and then I would get some runaround or "process" laid out to me that I had no time for - especially since this was originally the lab's mistake.
Finally ultimately frustrated, I hired a lawyer and after shelling out about $1000 he chased down the medical reporting outfit and they agreed to remove the data under threat of lawsuit. Funny, even though they did, I still see doctors at times and they mention "Oh, you have diabetes" until they read the actual numbers and see I don't. I still cannot get the life insurance I want because even though the data is removed, its in their records and thats all they care about.
In other words, that data is still out there, still wrong, still affecting my life and still, I cannot get it completely expunged.
If you go through something like this, trust me, you will hardly see any record providers as "benevolent caretakers" of data just waiting to help the client. What I learned is that they don't give a damn about me (the client), and they simply presume that if its in the database it MUST be correct.
When the customer's trust is honored??? Huh??? Where does THAT happen??? Not in any reality I have lived!
Its more a case of "if the computer says so - it must be right" (even when it is not).
There's no such thing as dumb questions, only poorly thought-out answers...
