This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Online medical records service provider Google Health has entered a collaborative partnership with Medical Informatics Engineering (MIE), a specialist in the management of electronic medical documents. The agreement will see Fort Wayne, Indiana-based MIE integrate its WebChart electronic health record portfolio software into the Google Health service, which is currently being trialled at the Cleveland Clinic (see Clinica No 1297, p 19). MIE's technology will allow physicians to have secure, real-time access to patient records even from remote locations. MIE executive vice president Peter Norder said that there would be a demand from technologically savvy patient for their doctors to provide an electronic service for their medical records. "Some patients will ask their physicians to adopt electronic health records systems that are fully interoperable with Google, or may even gravitate to physicians who have already done so. Physicians, in turn, will seek out solutions like WebChart," he said.
