Google Health Launches Amid Privacy Concerns

Yesterday's big news was about the launch of Google Health which right now is likened to a "notebook" of your medical records (gender, age, medications, doctors, etc.)

Here's a screenshot of the portal once you're logged in:

Of course, the issue of privacy has come up in several forum discussions. It's enough that Google has other information about so many millions of users, but health is a step too far.

beu at Search Engine Watch Forums points out something interesting, though:

Some residents of New Orleans have no medical records as a result of Katrina! I'd love to know the adoption rate of Google Health in the State of Louisiana as compared to the rest of the US.

It'd be nifty to see if Louisiana adopted this system and made it mainstream.

Additional blog discussion is at Techmeme and forum discussion continues at Cre8asite Forums, Search Engine Watch Forums, and DigitalPoint Forums.
