Cleveland Clinic Teams Up with Google for National Medical Records

On February 20, Google and The Cleveland Clinic announced that they were collaborating on an electronic personal health record (PHR).  There are plans to enroll 1500-10,000 of the Clinic’s patients to use the pilot version of Google’s password protected online medical record system.

Cleveland Clinic press release explained the new project “will test secure exchange of patient medical record data such as prescriptions, conditions and allergies between their Cleveland Clinic PHR to a secure Google profile in a live clinical delivery setting.”

The Cleveland Clinic view this partnership as a strategic step to help create national access to electronic medical records for free, putting the power and the responsibility back in the patients hands.
