Google releases Google Health for medical records

NEW YORK/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Google Inc on Monday unveiled Google Health, a long-anticipated U.S. health information service that combines the leading Web company's classic search services with a user's personal health records online.

The password-protected service, which can be found at www.google.com/health/, stores a user's basic medical history and gathers relevant information connected to their health conditions.

One feature includes a link to help users find doctors by location or specialization. The "virtual pillbox" notifies patients when they need to take medications and warns of potential drug interactions.

The service includes links to major U.S. pharmacies, doctors' groups and medical testing labs.
