Why is it . . .  
That every time you go to the doctor, they give you a brand-new patient information form to fill out, rather than giving you a printout or copy of the previous one with instructions to make any changes necessary?

Actually, I suspect the reason is that most people, if given a copy and told to make changes, would not read carefully. But it's still annoying.

Yeah, my doctor's office does the same thing. Not every time, but I think twice in the 10 years I've been going there, they asked, "is your emergency contact still [name]?" which I thought was a great idea. Who thinks of that? But once I wanted to change it from my mother to my best friend who lives locally, and the other time I wanted to change her phone number.
