Fans of the legendary sitcom “Seinfeld” will recall the episode in which Elaine enlists Kramer, in the guise of Dr. Van Nostrand, to steal her medical records so she can get a rash diagnosed.
Amid all of the absurdity, this episode did speak to a very real problem. Having to rely on a busy doctor’s office to forward your records to a hospital or specialist can lead to delays in examinations and treatment. If, like Elaine, you have a mysterious rash, that wait could be quite uncomfortable. But now, 15 years after Seinfeld shed light on the problem, there is a scratch for this particular itch, in the form of an iPhone App.
