Google sets PHR release date
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Nov. 5, 2007
Google is confirming that its upcoming health platform will include a personal health record.
Information Week reported that Marissa Mayer, who took over Google's health products department when Adam Bosworth stepped down earlier this year, told attendees at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco last month that the Google PHR should arrive by next year.
Google spokesman Steve Langford confirmed to AMNews that Mayer made some comments regarding a launch, but said her comments were along the lines of "in the very near future." He said the company does not yet have a formal launch date.
