Google Health has started working… and seriously enough! It has launched a testbed in partnership with the Cleveland Clinic.

Cleveland Clinic is one of the pioneer health institutes that has electronic medical records system allows some 100,000 odd patients to save up their medical records online in sync with Google’s Internet-based personal-health-records system.

It aims primarily to help patients have access to their medical records and health sheets no matter where they are and sparing them the burden of carrying paper documents. All well and good except for a few flip sides.

By keeping the medical records online, patients would have control over the same and that means they would be able to edit or even delete embarrassing information about themselves. Moreover, it could also take a unscrupulous turns in the situation. This steals away the credibility of the records totally.

With these contrasting elements to it, lets see where and how the deal works out!

[put at-character here]Marilynn: Do you have a cite for users being able to edit medical records made available through Google Health?
