Google to Announce Google Health Next Year

October 19, 2007

In Information Week, there is a report of an announcement from Google (Marissa Mayer) at a Web 2.0 conference that Google will announce its offering early next year.

Google has developed a prototype online platform for its health offering that incorporates personal medical records, health care-related search features, diet and exercise regimens, a localized ‘find a doctor’ application, and other elements.”

And, “While the focus will be on improving health care and making records more accessible and portable for patients, Google will also improve life for physicians.”

As the article notes, Microsoft appears to have been first to market with a health product but it will be a fair comparison to be made once Google Health is finally launched.
