iHealthBeat: Paging Dr. Google

For those interested in the use of Google as a health care search engine you should read Jane Sarasohn-Kahn's Commentary at iHealthBeat titled "Paging Dr. Google". Ms. Sarasohn-Kahn is a health economist and leads Think-Health.

The commentary is very thought provoking. I'm fascinated (and a bit scared) about the ideas of Googling my genetic information and how Google will play a role in evidenced based medicine and the electronic medical record revolution.

The commentary also mentions a, new player in the online health care information and earch engine field, that I ran across in a number of articles over the last month.
