Google, Cleveland Clinic team up on patient records
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Leading Web search company Google Inc is collaborating with Cleveland Clinic, one of the United States leading health institutions, to pilot a new project which helps patients manage their own health information.
Cleveland Clinic plans to enroll between 1,500 and 10,000 patients to trial the secure exchange of medical record data such as prescriptions, conditions and allergies between the clinic and a secure Google profile in a live clinical delivery setting.
The clinic said the goal of the model was to give patients the ability to interact with multiple physicians, healthcare service providers and pharmacies.
