Google Health users are finding stunning inaccuracies in medical records imported from primary-care physicians and hospitals because Google takes some information from insurance billing records that use broad and imprecise codes to describe patient treatment. One electronic health-records expert says “this kind of information should never be used clinically.” Feeling better? – Bob Evans, InformationWeek

Common Google, get your act together! How did this get by the developing team? Did they not see this coming? I wonder … But I am still loving the idea and think it could work, just needs a bit more tweeking
