The Wall Street Journal Health blog mentions that Google VP Adam Bosworth (whose interest in health information I’ve previously posted about here, here and here) spoke today at the World Health Care Congress in Washington D.C.
Bosworth…said patients should have online access to all of the electronic health information that exists about them, whether it’s contained in doctors’ files, billing databases or prescription record.
David Williams, a blogger and health-care consultant who was there….speculates that Google wants to be the one to offer consumers this information, in the form of an electronic health record.
But Bosworth didn’t spill any specifics. Williams told the Health Blog this afternoon that the exec would only say that Google’s health project is “in the queue.”
