Google Health

21 05 2008

Google Health launched today in what could portend a far more personal, digital future for health-related data.  Google Health is a way to manage your medical records.  Proponents of Google Health and Microsoft’s similar Health Vault say they could make medical data more accessible for patients, enabling them to take control of their health care. Opponents worry that putting the information online is a threat to privacy and unlikely to make much of a difference in how doctors treat their patients.

The health care issue hits me the hardest with drug costs; My union has not been able to keep my CoPay as low as in the past so I have had to seek alternatives. One site I have been using is http://www.OPTIMIZERx.com . They have been helping me out finding me rebates, trial offers and the best thing is that it is totally free. Check it out we all need this kind of help today.

Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, previewed Google Health at the annual conference of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) held last month. The company also announced that it is testing the Google Health product in a pilot program with the Cleveland Clinic.

MyMedicalRecords.com is collaborating with Google Health to build a two-way interface that will enable users of Google Health to transfer information from their Google Health account into an MMR account and vice versa. MMR is a highly-secure, easy-to-use, and comprehensive personal health record (PHR) that uses proprietary, patentpending technology to give patients and healthcare providers the ability to upload images, such as x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs, fax medical records and other important documents, and to have doctors notes dictated into an account. The information is then accessible from any Internet-connected computer anywhere in the world with no special hardware or software. An Emergency Login feature enables an Emergency Medical Provider to access important information in the event of a medical emergency.
