Google Health Goes Live




As of May 19, 2008 Google Health went live and is a free service available for storing health records and health related information. I'm partial to the idea largely because about 5 years ago my insurance company folded right in the middle of a cancer diagnosis and about 3 days before I was scheduled for surgery. Needless to say I was scrambling for a new doctor but without any medical records I was at a complete loss. Not only was it frightening but frustrating! Storing prescriptions, tests and results, dates and specialists would have been helpful. My current medical carrier has test results to download and could go directly into Google Health.

Something to think about. Check it out.
