Google opposes sale of personal medical info
Wall Street Journal Health Blog, January 29, 2009
Google, which last year launched a personal online repository called Google Health, is refuting a charge by a different consumer group of "a rumored [Google] lobbying effort aimed at allowing the sale of electronic medical records." The group further claimed that Google is "reportedly" pushing for items in the economic stimulus bill that would allow the company to "sell patient medical information" to advertisers. Google posted an item in its public policy blog calling the claims "100% false and unfounded."
