Google and Health Care

July 2nd, 2007

Google’s decidedly creepy pitch to the health care industry to help facilitate their ongoing astroturf/PR campaigns has been all over the web.(after all who better to create fake consensus then the current undisputed arbitrator of the collective wisdom)

What I haven’t seen anywhere is anybody putting this together with Google’s quiet, and not so quiet wooing of the health care industrial complex at large.

Google has identified the health care industry has big growth, and this is the start of the full court push.

I wish Adam was still blogging. Be interesting to get his perspective on all this.

    It’s funny — I had the same thought.

    I did some googling and Adam does still blog intermittently on the googleblog ( look for links in here )

    It’s intriguing to think about what problems a medical records system from google could solve.

    Just wanted to mention our patient activist and physician oriented Health Search startup “CureHunter“. One of our main design goals is to bring patients and physicians closer to the research so they can make the most educated decisions possible and truly begin to practice Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) in real-time.

    …without giving anyone your medical records!
