GOOGLE HEALTH . . . Is Google dropping Google Health, its online medical-records project? An article in the Wall Street Journal implies its days might be numbered, as Larry Page resumes his role as CEO--
Some managers believe Mr. Page will eliminate or downgrade projects he doesn't believe are worthwhile, freeing up employees to work on more important initiatives, these people said. One project expected to get less support is Google Health, which lets people store medical records and other health data on Google's servers, said people familiar with the matter.
Three years ago, I wrote about Google Health for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. I wasn't in favor of the idea: "Will Google Transform Medicine? Inevitable Advertising, Privacy Issues Make Google Health a Bad Prescription." I won't be sad to see it go.
