 Google's new online medical record service lets patients control who gets to see their health information

Google will test a new online medical record service with a hospital group in Cleveland, Ohio, allowing patients to control who gets to see their health information. The two organizations hope the trial will lead to the creation of a national system for sharing electronic medical records. The Cleveland Clinic already operates its own electronic personal health record system, eCleveland Clinic MyChart, holding the records of 100,000 patients. It will invite between 1,500 and 10,000 of them to participate in the trial with Google, it said Wednesday.

Participants in the trial will be able to exchange data about their prescriptions, conditions, and allergies between their Cleveland Clinic record and a "secure Google profile" in a live clinical delivery setting, the hospital group said.

With the data accessible in this way, patients will be able to share it with different doctors, service providers and pharmacies, according to the hospital group.
Google will release further details of its role in the trial later Thursday, said company spokeswoman Amy Fisher.   [InfoWorld...]  [Comments...]
