Hou je medisch dossier bij in Google Health

Er zwerven op het internet eerste screenshots rond van Google Health; een website waar je je eigen gezondheidsdossier kunt aanleggen.... Health is er nog niet, maar Google is er al zeker een jaar mee bezig.

Google Health, codename “Weaver”, is Google’s planned health information storage program. Google’s Vice President of Engineering Adam Bosworth lobbies for the program for quite a while now. Adam said the current US health care system is challenged when it comes to “supporting caregivers and communicating between different medical organizations.” Adam went on to say that people “need the medical information that is out there and available to be organized and made accessible to all ... Health information should be easier to access and organize, especially in ways that make it as simple as possible to find the information that is most relevant to a specific patient’s needs.” Adam adds that this – making information accessible – happens to be along Google’s mission.
