Google Health?

Posted May 19, 2008 11:12 PM by amichelen

Today Google started a new service called Google Health. This is an information service that makes use of the powerful search capabilities of Google and personal health files for the users. By being a user (you must register, of course) you can have all your health records in one place (Google servers), and even you may download your medical records (provided your physician is registered with Google Health) to your Google Health site.

What can I do with My Google Health? This service is similar to any other social network available in the web. You fell from a tree? No problem, you open your Google Health and through it you can inform you physician (he or she may want to charge you) just by making an entr in your files.

You forgot to take your medicine? No problem, the next time your open Your Stuff at Google Helath, you will receive a reminder.

You need to find a physician close to home? No problem, Google Health will keep a list of doctors and facilities for any locality in the USA.

Google Health include agreements with the most important farmacies, doctors and hospitals in the US, such as Walgreen, CVS, Quest Diagnostics, Cleveland Clinic, and others.

Now, Cr4 readers, what do you think about this service? Are we closer to the Orwellian Big Brother society?

It does makes a lot of sense to me too so far. Wish I have a whole bunch of time off often in order to be able to re-positioning as far as possible much of the actual personnal life concerns but the -"Time Machine"- was a nice series of the past and as time click on ticking is like running behind the wind in simple words is kind of a irony and littlt too difficult to persue but that's where probably the imagination play it's role then like an strasthospheric machine out of this world thinkable spectrum. Any way now with all these technologies flying moving all over humankind will be able to make it use for progression leverage to the next level.

Example what it took acres and acres before to harvest now there are a now a whole bunch of more technology to make it harvest in much less space so that's a good deal to look at having some foods issues within many countries but then again will take some extra common efforts at 'meeting the distances' - I assume..!

Last nite I was checking out that documental about satellites GPS and Galileo's all over the planet and does sound a huge communications super-tech out from the --"Time Machine"-- imaginary futuristic travel, awesone. As far as safety concerns get cover in the agenda it would be a huge step into the future.

All set nice deal then easy does it now and not rush into nothing. Nice report of yours, thanks.

Respectfuly,

MC
