Google unveiled Google Health, a long-anticipated health information service that combines the leading Web company’s classic search services with a user’s online personal health records.
The password-protected service provides a personalized profile for Google users of their basic medical history and gathers relevant information associated with the user’s health conditions.
One feature includes a link to help users find doctors by location or specialization. The “virtual pillbox” notifies patients when they need to take medications and possible drug interactions between different drugs. Users can also import medical records if they are available in digital form.
