Posted in Health by Darrin Olson on May 21st, 2008

Google Launches Google HealthGoogle seems to always have something new coming out and this week Google Health is taking the spotlight. We had first heard about Google Health last October and until now the service has only been available to a select few.

The new service is now open to the public (in beta, of course) and is being offered as a free service to help store and manage all of your health related information in one central location, accessible from anywhere. The service allows you to log in with your Google account to build an online health profile, import medical records and prescriptions from hospitals and pharmacies, find education health resources, find doctors or hospitals in your area and provides connections with other online health services.

Google launches App Engine web application host

Posted in Google by Darrin Olson on April 8th, 2008

Google App Engine launched to host applications for freeGoogle has announced the launch of App Engine, a new tool allowing developers to create web applications that can be hosted on a Google’s own infrastructure. The idea of making a hosted development environment isn’t necessarily new as Salesforce has had the Appexchange platform for some time now, along with a few others companies offering similar services. One of the major things that makes Google’s App Engine stand out from the rest however is that it’s free.

The App Engine platform is launching as a “preview release” with all the expected features of the service not quite complete yet. It’s also going to be available only to the first 10,000 developers that sign up, which at the point of this writing appears to be already full. (You can get on a wait list, though).

Google Health to come next year

Google Health will be available sometime early next year.The internet giant is never content to sit back and let anyone else take a large piece of the pie. Hey, that’s how they got so rich! That’s why they are following Microsoft’s lead where health and medical records are concerned. They plan to roll out Google Health sometime early next year if they keep to their schedule.

It makes sense since users all begin at the Google page to search for health and medical information anyway. So they will be applying Google’s expertise in indexing, searching, and managing vast amounts of information to the idea. It also doesn’t hurt that they will have the health industry targeted with their Adwords program. If Google’s history has shown us anything, it should be a huge success and give the giant still more dominance in the industry.
