Free Electronic Health Record

Last week a new electronic health record service, iHealthRecord, was launched by Medem Inc. and it is being made available to medical consumers for free.  See a webcast of the launch, which includes a nice talk by Newt Gingrich towards the end (including a pitch for incorporating Medline driven information prescriptions into the service).

A recent article in the the Washington Post described the offerings of for-fee electronic health record providers that sell direct to consumer, including Laxor, FollowMe, WebMD, CapMed, and VitalVault.

Where’s Google?  Esther Dyson has been pushing the idea (or here) that Google should get into the game–I wholeheartedly agree.
