Google Health end is near

Google HealthOn June 24th, Google announced that it’s retiring its Electronic Medical Records (EMR) project, Google Health, with personal data available for download through 2012. Google created the service to give people access to their personal health and wellness information. They hoped to translate their success in other consumer-centered domains into healthcare but were apparently disappointed in slower than expected adoption rates.

Google Health was one of several EHR/EMR products described in an article by Shannon Martin, Choosing a service for Electronic Personal Health Records.
