Sneak Peek at Google Health

Google is supposed to debut its personal healthcare search and record storage tools early this year, following Microsoft's entry last year with its HealthVault program.

The fact that these two huge technology companies are getting involved illustrates how clear it is that there's money to be made from helping people manage their personal health.

It's not clear how (or whether) either Google or Microsoft's health offerings could apply to health and wellness programs of employers. Both seem aimed squarely at consumers, at least for now.

But in the meantime, take a sneak peek at Google's expected offerings, which a number of websites have managed to publish. The link above is from the Google Blogoscoped blog, which also managed to get its hands on these early Google Health screen shots.

You may also want to check out Microsoft's HealthVault program, which was launched last fall.
