A Glimpse of Google Health...

In the forum, some of us are seeing a glimpse of the coming Google Health when searching for e.g. tired or flu on I can’t reproduce it with a normal search, but when I add the parameter “cx=disease_for_patients”, as mentioned by TomHTML, I see links like “treatment,” “symptoms” or “risk factors” being shown as onebox result. Clicking on e.g. “risk factors” brings up a new Google search for flu more:causes_risk_factors. Another link reading “clear refinements” gets rid of this health-related clustering.

As you can see from the screenshot above, there’s still some work to do – a character within the link text is wrongly escaped. I wonder if we’ll be seeing this released on the Google Press Day on Wednesday.
