NextGov.com, December 9, 2008
The Defense Department has started testing an application that allows soldiers, veterans, and their families to manage their personal health records online using programs provided by Google and Microsoft. The department's Military Health System launched the feature, called MiCare, at the Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, WA. Patients there can use either the patient-controlled health records application developed by Google, called Google Health, or Microsoft's health records application, Microsoft HealthVault, MHS representatives said.
