Google launches online medical records service

AP/Yahoo News, May 20, 2008
Google has launched Google Health, a medical records service letting users store and manage their healthcare information online. Google said it built a secure computer platform separate from its search system to host medical records to keep the health information protected. Privacy advocates are skeptical, however, and seek proof that online medical information will be safe from tampering or snooping. Skeptics say the information would be valuable to insurance companies or employers out to reduce liabilities by shunning those with health issues.
