Google, IBM promote online health records
Google Inc. is teaming with International Business Machines Corp. to allow patients to add data generated from home-health monitoring products. The companies said software developed by IBM, with consumers' permission, can shift the data into a personal health record in Google Health, the search giant's service for helping consumers manage and store their health information online. Other software lets the patient transfer the information from there to an electronic medical record kept by healthcare providers.
