Google Health Co-op (Making Google Health Portal Possible)

This is a little late to be posting, but I’ve had too much else going on to post it previously. It looks like Google Health is finally a reality and is using lessons learned from wikipedia to help in their health portal. I think it is a good idea and the Google Health co-op might just work.

However, I think until some doctors see and evaluate the type of content that is created we won’t really know how good this co-op is going to work. Another Healthcare blogger has posted a lot more on the Google Health portal and how it works. He also gives a good description of someone who is participating in the Health co-op:

See Enoch Choi’s interesting post on his experiences as an individual contributor to Google Co-op. It will provide you with a “ground-level” view of what it is like to participate in this new service.
