Some Confirmation On Google Health

We’ve blogged
on rumors that Google might be developing a Google Health service
and that Adam Bosworth might be involved as the "chief architect" of it. Now
some confirmation from Google, which emailed me:

Health has been an area of interest at Google for some time. We (including
Adam) have been doing a variety of research in this area, including how to
improve the quality of health-related search results.

So, they’re looking at it. What may emerge obviously remains to be seen.
