Making Life Easier

Google Health

OK I haven’t tried this one yet – and I’m not sure I’m going to but I found it very interesting. Google is now helping you organize your medical records online: https://www.google.com/health/html/tour/index.html

You sign up.
Track medical conditions – and learn more about them if you want.
Import medical records.
View medical history.
Learn about how medicines might interact – possibly order subscriptions online.
Find doctors and hospitals.
Have everything at your fingertips.

They say everything is private and safe. I suspect that your own computer is probably the weakest link as far as that goes. It might have been nice to have all of this last year in Dublin – though it didn’t really come up. I guess I would find this helpful to track kids, if I had a lot of medications or conditions, and/or if I traveled a lot.
