Just wondering. I got a new PCP that uses "digital records" but they said they haven't partnered with Google Health, but they work with Allscripts which is listed on Google Health's partners page. I haven't used Google Health myself. Or if you have some neat way of organizing all your medical records (other than my current system which is papers stuffed into manilla folders in a filing cabinet) please feel free to share...

I haven't used it. Our insurance has a section where you can keep track of all your data on their website, but it is private insurance owned by my husband's company and administered by the insurance company. With all the new HIPPA rules, they say that nothing is shared with the company, but as Navy says, way too paranoid. It still freaks me out a bit when I go into the hospital and they can pull all my records up with the touch of a button. Its great, but a bit freaky.

I have electronic records with my insurance. I personally like it because all my docs are on the same page and can see what the other is doing. JMHO

Yeah. I think with Quest you can access your results online but need your doctor's permission.

Oh, also, my doctor said they're planning on having an online patient portal (which means accessing records I assume) and emailing, but haven't launched it yet. I guess if I can trust that, I can probably trust Google Health. But then again maybe Google will go Facebook on sharing data. I dunno, it seems like if somebody REALLY wanted to find out more about your health it wouldn't be tooo difficult.
