At Life as a Healthcare CIO, John Halamka reports that yesterday, Google Health launched a "social networking" feature for its personal health records. If you have a Google Health profile, you can share this profile by clicking on a link that then invites the person you've chosen to share it with by email to view your record. Halamka praises it as solving "many confidentiality issues by putting the patient in control of medical record sharing," but comments to the blog post point out that it's not a new thing: Indivo and Children's Hospital Boston have had this feature for a while.
