Personal Health Records: Microsoft, Google & NHS HealthSpace...

This post follows from an item by Neil Versel at Digital HealthCare & Productivity on Google CEO Discusses Google Health.

This sentence makes interesting reading:

Schmidt said Google can change that by delivering a product that is not “too vertical” or “too specialized” like so many of the PHRs out there.
Wherever you find Google discussed, Microsoft are also in the mix, so there's an invite to open the HealthVault (see: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/industry/health?rtc=1). There are many more PHR players as Versel's article highlights.

All of which begs the question how long has the NHS's HealthSpace been around for - quite a while by my reckoning.

While on things personal and public - the journal Health Expectations - promotes critical thinking and informed debate about all aspects of public participation in health care and health policy.
