For anyone who has worked to improve the understand-ability and availability of medical records, their godfather was always Dr. Larry Weed. Well, with his passing at 93, he now becomes our ‘patron saint.’ He died on June 3rd in Underhill, Vermont.

His passion for understandable (even helpful!) medical records has saved untold millions of patients over the years. He was truly a trailblazer, and will be missed.
