Google Health – Adam Bosworth’s latest Speech

December 13, 2006

Adam Bosworth, VP of Google spoke at the recent Connecting Americans to Their Health Care conference. In his two posts on Google Blog, he discusses his thoughts on health care including a link to his speech. That speech is worth the read – it is both personal (his experience with his mother’s cancer) and technical, proposing the use of Google Coop for healthcare information but also a link to one’s consolidated personal health information from various sources. The concept is a health URL which each person would have as a personal portal. He states, “As Google has explored this issue over the past year and we have spoken to leading health providers and institutions from coast to coast, we have heard people say that it is too hard to build consistent standards and to define interoperable ways to move the information. It is not!”

It is great to hear his confidence and willingness to talk to health care leaders but also lead the way to interoperability.
