Review of Google Health – Fact and Predictions

June 21, 2007

The e-Care Management Blog has a major article  on Google Health. Reviewing all the Adam Bosworth has said over the past months, Vince Kuraitis addresses:

  • The Current Market Structure for Personal Health Information (PHI)
  • Google Health’s Anticipated Technology Model
  • Three Leverage Points
  • Google Health Will Be Disruptive

He concludes “The basic problem is that your PHI is 1) scattered everywhere, and 2) not in suitable, standardized formats. The GH technology model and business model offer solutions to both of these problems.”

Worth reading and then wait and see what Google really does.

Interview with Dr. C. Martin Harris on PHRs

June 21, 2007

In an interview on HIMSS Weekly Insider, Dr. Harris of the Cleveland Clinic is interviewed about MyChart, the Clinic’s Personal Health record which is integrated with Epic System’s EMR. He discusses the value for patients including home monitoring for diabetes and notifying patients on specific medications when new research is available, such as, the FDA warning for the diabetes medication Avandia – over 700 patients were notified immediately using MyChart.
Three take-a-ways:

  1. “PHR tools are no longer ancillary; they are an integral part of the practice and delivery of high-quality medical services”
  2. “these tools empower patients to become active participants in their healthcare decisions”
  3. “these tools will fundamentally transform the way we currently think about the delivery of healthcare services”
