Google Hits Reset Button on Google Health

“Google Health has seemingly been stuck in neutral almost from the start. Despite the fanfare of Google’s Eric Schmidt speaking at the big industry confab, HIMSS a couple of years back, an initial beta release with healthcare partner Cleveland Clinic and a host of partners announced once the service was opened to the public in May 2008, Google Health just has not seemed to live up to its promise. Chilmark has looked on with dismay as follow-on announcements and updates from Google Health were modest at best and not nearly as compelling as Google’s chief competitor in this market, Microsoft and its corresponding HealthVault. Most recently we began to hear rumors that Google had all but given up on Google Health, something that did not come as a surprise, but was not a welcomed rumor here at Chilmark for markets need competitors to drive innovation. If Google pulled out, what was to become of HealthVault or any other such service?”

    Dissapointing news for consumers who are begging for the level of Integration with various care providers that was part of the promise. Healthcarenproviders or health plans aren’t responding responding and may not ever have the resources to. I was betting on a non health care innovator to actually make it happen.
