But why should google be able to use that info for targeted ads? AETNA lets you send your health history to a doctor before you show up, and HMO's have done very well, too.
It's the next step towards a health-based credit score IMO, and I'm against any private company running the database with no controls.
I wasn't commenting on Google specifically, only on the obvious benefits a national health registry of some sort could provide.
How would Aetna know my health history now? I might have had them a couple of times over the last 30 years, maybe they can remember a little bit here or there, but not everything.
