Though the news is still unfolding (the company presented Google Health at its headquarters in a “Factory Tour of Search” event a couple of hours ago), Reuters just did a brief story describing its features and industry partners.
So far (no real surprise to me) the blogosphere has put a lot of emphasis on privacy issues (see ZDNet, which expresses surprise and concern that Google Health isn’t covered by HIPAA), and TechCrunch, which describes the launch in detail as it happened. User comments on TechCrunch express some significant privacy concerns. It will be interesting to see how general public opinions change over time... and of course we'd love to hear what you--a highly knowledgeable audience--think of it, whether from a privacy, design, or business perspective.
