I think it is marketing. If you notice, one of the major FAQ headings
is, why change from cine film to CDR? They aren't talking a better CD,
they are saying CDR instead of microfilm for medical records. I would
hazard a guess that they can price "medical CDRs" at about ten times
the cost, since it is doctors who decide and health insurance that pays
the bill (or ten percent of it, anyway!) - so it is not a grae but an
alternate to film recordkeeping...
It is part of the digitization of medical records, which is supposed to
make our lives "better" ...
If it helps, see this page and you can choose the colored CDs...
My first response was, if it is a medical CD where do they install it
in the human body?!?
