Podcast: Google Health has a new focus

Is Google Health still in the running as a viable PHR service? John Moore of Chilmark Research gives the inside scoop on Google Health and discusses the future of PHR services.

The redesign places a greater focus on tracking personal health and fitness stats, while still keeping track of more traditional metrics, such as allergies and medications.

In part 2 of this two-part podcast, Moore offers his thoughts on Google Health's extreme makeover. Does Google hit the mark? What does the future hold for PHR services in general? Hear what this health IT industry analyst has to say in our exclusive podcast.
