google medicalA WebmasterWorld thread has discussion around a new look for answers around medical or health related queries in Google.

The results, as described by a webmaster, "replaces results with content," which is what the knowledge graph does.

At least in this case, they are linking to the results. It won't be long until Google removes those links and just places it in their knowledge graph.
