As Meyati says, electronic records have this. When I go to the hospital via ambulance, all parties know. The EMS guys know, the hospital knows, the ER knows and has a private sequestered room for me waiting because of my immunosuppression, the doc is notified, etc. the pharmacy I use has all my allergies. Totally locked in everywhere.
If you were referred, the records are sent there. If you remain in the same health system, same thing.
The only problem I ever had was during paper records. Some clerk mixed my records with someone else with the same name. Simply doesn't happen with the electronic system.
