Google the search giant's move into health information - Google Health

Now the search giant's move into health information could be a winner. Google's plans for a service that puts you in control of your health information start to take shape. This service could help you make more informed decisions about your health, get personalized recommendations from specialists and share this information with other people.

Google Health, that will help you find treatments, symptoms or alternative medicine treatments.

The service may end up looking like Google's Finance portal which offers other services, like news headlines and market data, alongside tailored search results.

Google, and the internet more widely, have been blamed by some doctors for giving patients alarming information and for spreading information about rare side effects.

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.

Get health answers without giving anyone your medical records!

Please check it out if you get the chance.
