A good example of the lack of Data Integration

This weekend, John Soat published in his blog in Information Week, a letter that he wrote to an CIO of a Healthcare group, where he complains because he had filled twice forms, with his personal data, in the same day, in two care centers that belong of the same Healthcare group, when he needed treatment.

He wrote seriously, but the letter is funny. He talks about data integration between many companies of the same group, in this case, many care centers of the same Healthcare group.

The data integration is a very important issue to the companies nowadays, because doesn't permit the redundancy of data, is better to maintain the historical data, and consequently maintain the data quality.

I agree with him, because I think it is very boring, you have to fill out a form twice with the same data.
