Google health goes to Cleveland

In Health industry, Information industry, Knowledge Management, Web 2.0 & all that on March 17, 2008 by Alan Lovell Tagged: ,

A blog post at IWR reports on how Google is partnering with The Cleveland Clinic to pilot their health records system , with the aim of furthering ‘Patient-centric’ access to health records. From the post:

Academic medical institution The Cleveland Clinic has announced a collaboration with Google to pilot a new health offering for up to 10,000 patients. The invitation-only initiative will test the secure exchange of patient medical records, such as prescriptions, conditions and allergies, between The Cleveland Clinic and a secure Google patient profile.

Personal health records are shaping up to be one of many battlegrounds between Google and Microsoft. Should be fun, watching from the sidelines.
