Google updated Health
<< Google Health launched a bit over two years ago, and since then we’ve been listening to our users, analyzing feedback and conducting research. We’ve learned a lot from you! You’ve confirmed that having a central place online to store and share medical data with whomever you want is important and a step in the right direction. And we’ve added a number of features based on what you’ve asked for so far. >>
I love the optional "coffee consumption" and "weight" charts. When I have an internet-enabled coffee cup and weighing scale, I'll sign up.
Hebbet, I like your title.
Some more info from their UX team here:
<<...we identified several areas where we could improve Google Health to make it a more useful wellness tool, including:
– Dedicated wellness tracking including pre-built and custom trackers
– Efficient manual data entry as well as automatic data collection through devices
– A customizable summary dashboard of wellness and other health topics
– Goal setting and progress tracking using interactive charts
– Personalized pages for each topic with rich charts, journaling, and related information
I don't understand... Are there more people using Google Health than people who are using Google Wave? Why was Wave killed, while Health continues to live?

Google Health has some paying commercial customers (hospitals, etc).
[edit: actually I don't know for sure that they pay real money; just that they have a commercial arrangement with Google]
