Google’s foray into health care goes live this week. Well, maybe not so much live, but it’s the permanent beta that Google is famous for.
Google Health is not like WebMD or other health Web sites.
It’s a place to keep all your medical information in one area. Site users enter all their health information into their profiles and the site alerts users to drug interactions and gives other helpful news. You can even upload your medical records.
The site is more of a medical portal than an Internet doctor’s office, which is good because that’s what Google does well. It has an index of medical Web sites and will help you locate the right doctor for you once it has all your info.
