Podcast: Google Health's extreme makeover

Will the makeover to Google Health -- gearing it more to personal fitness -- damage its long-term prospects as a PHR service? John Moore of Chilmark Research offers his thoughts.

Last week, Google Inc. unveiled an extreme makeover for Google Health, the company's personal health record (PHR) service. The redesign makes room for tracking personal health and fitness stats, as well as including some of the old material it tracked for patients.

We caught up with John Moore of Chilmark Research, for whom Google provided a sneak preview of the site before it made its public debut. That's interesting because he's the health IT analyst who created quite a stir when he shoveled dirt onto Google Health's grave last May.

In this two-part podcast, Moore shares his thoughts on the new Google Health, and gives us the inside scoop on its future and the future of PHR services in general.
