Tools to help healthcare providers deliver better care | Care Studio | Google Health

Health information is incredibly complex —there are misspellings, different ways of saying the same thing, handwritten scribbles, and faxes. Google has spent two decades on similar problems for consumers, building products such as Search, Translate and Gmail, and we believe we can adapt our technology to help.

That’s why we’re building an intelligent suite of tools to help doctors, nurses, and other providers take better care of patients, leveraging our expertise in organizing information. One of those tools aims to make health records more useful, more accessible and more searchable by pulling them into a single, easy-to-use interface for doctors.

Hello! I loved the content! I have been trying to search for YouTube video that explains the topics in this vid. 👏 The explanation at 1:26 is educational. Your vid for sure is similar to the content of Doctor Ethan! Doctor's demonstrations are useful and I actually learned a lot for midterms. He is an educational Doctor in the UK and he explains health and mental health.

I recommend you see his YT out and give the health enthusiast a like over here! 👉 #DoctorEthan

Am here to appreciate Dr Agbonifo for using his herbal medicine to cure my Herpes virus. since 3 years now I have been living with this virus and it has been giving me challenges, I was so perplexed cause i have been taking several drugs to be cured but all of my effort was in vain,one morning i was browsing through the internet then i saw several testimonies about Dr Agbonifo curing people from Herpes virus and immediately i contacted Him on his email:, i told him about my troubles and he assured me of my healing, gave me some instructions and which i rightly followed. so he prepared and sent me his herbs which i used for 2 weeks and everything was like a dream to me and my Herpes virus was totally gone, I recommend you to contact him On WhatsApp +234 903 474 9874 today and be free from your diseases because he is very good and honest Doctor.

Google: "We hope to help physicians and improve healthcare access to all."
Physicians: "With access to patient data, will their privacy be protected?"
Google: "Yeah, about that…"

As usual there seems to be a focus on easily entering data. But nothing of retrieval and the use of standard terminologies. Right now very little data that comes from an EHR is actually usable. Most labs (typically 50-70%) are lacking a standard terminology, (LOINC for example) and a such are not easily usable. We waste tons of time trying to figure out what a lab test actually was! We need to get out of the data entry mindset and think about why we enter the data. If it is just for keeping a simple patient chart, then just put everything in text and call it good – even better go back to paper. If we want to be able to utilize the information. We first need to enter it in a manner that makes it useful. We can't all use different languages (terminologies), we need to find a common terminology set (they exist we just ignore them). And text needs to be limited to 250 characters. Way too often important information is buried in 3 page long diatribes that are dangerous to patient care. If you can't sum up the condition in 250 characters, then nobody will bother reading it anyway.

Estimates when this will come out?
As a word of suggestion, would advise not to compare it to other parts of Google as it may also give the impression that there will be privacy concerns associated to Google Health as well

Don’t just don’t I don’t trust you with my medical record everyone with more than ten brain cells can see that this is most likely illegal for you to do this and it’s privacy invasion

Estimados señores de Google me gustaría pediros a ustedes está solicitud: como bien saben tenéis una aplicación llamada Google Earth, pues lo que yo os propongo es que generase una aplicación dentro de Google Earth llamada Google Earth historic and prehistoric, la cual lo que haría sería regenerar escenarios del pasado utilizando la aplicación de Google Earth. Por ejemplo si quisiéramos viajar en esa aplicación a hace 65 millones de años, en el momento de la caída del meteorito, dentro de esa aplicación podría haber un buscador llamado momento, en el cual se coloca el año o hace cuántos años y saldrán una fila de resultados, siguiendo con el ejemplo sería algo así; en vez de ir a el año iría a hace cuántos años dónde aqui pondría hace 65 millones de años (el hace se mantendría estático como título y lo que se escribiría , sería en el apartado de cuántos años), una vez ocurrido eso saldría la fila resultados sobre respecto a el momento que quieres ver en concreto: en este caso la caída del meteorito de la extinción kt.

Una vez elegido el momento habría un botón llamado aceptar, el cual una vez dado, la imagen de la esfera terrestre del Google Earth, se modificaría para adaptarse al momento concreto que has pedido: en este ejemplo se modificaría los continentes y se vería a diferentes escalas la caída del meteorito de los dinosaurios.

Ojo en esta aplicación habría también otra otro apartado que sería el "cómo lo quieres ver": el cual te permitiría ver de dos formas el escenario terrestre: la versión sin cambios temporales : que mostraría en ese momento histórico o pre histórico los elementos de hoy en día como casas, monumentos, etcétera, para saber dónde pudieron estar ubicados, os pongo un ejemplo para entenderlo: la península de Yucatán, que en el momento de la caída del meteorito de los dinosaurios, estaba inundada por las aguas del Atlántico, colocar la silueta de la península con sus elementos actuales. Otro ejemplo sería ir a la época del Imperio romano, buscar roma, darle en como lo quieres ver ,a "sin cambios temporales" se vería la Roma actual con sus elementos actuales.

Y la opción "con cambios temporales"; la cual haría una simulación de elementos estáticos dentro de los escenarios de cada momento histórico o prehistorico; cómo colocar los dinosaurios y demas seres vivos qué pudieron vivir por Nueva York, como también la morfología del terreno en aquel entonces. O colocar a Roma en su época imperial con los elementos que está conlleva. También sea bueno colocar en estos elementos unas etiquetas para poder identificar o saber qué son.

Estaría muy bien que existiese un apartado llamado recomendados, el cual serviría para decir curiosidades o momentos históricos/ prehistóricos, interesantes o recomendables.

Esta sería mi encantaría saber los resultados del si estáis de acuerdo o no con esta petición con sus porques.

Si llegáis a aceptar mi propuesta, estaría muy bien que me informaseis de vuestras aportaciones.

Un cordial saludo

There are some nice features here (such as the "type ahead" feature that guesses what you are going to type) that the major EHRs should have implemented a long time ago. However, I was sad to see that the Google designers were as innumerate as all the EHR designers that preceded them. Look at the lab results at 1:40 in the video – no error bars or ranges around the creatinine results and a completely inaccurate inference that there's a linear progression between each measurement (as if the patient's creatinine of 1.2 in early 2017 dropped linearly without excursion to 1.1 in Sept 2018). And of course the values all performed in a short time frame in early 2019 are all jammed together on this view. Hopefully they'll put some real thought into accurate data representation (maybe consult Edward Tufte) before unleashing this on the world.

UX is the easy part. Integration with those siloed systems is the real challenge. This is basically a fancy wireframe. How will patient consent work? How will user roles between various systems be handled? How will the data be recorded back into those source systems?

This is a game changer. If google amasses huge amounts of clinical data that this will give it, the possibilities are endless: public health stats, drug discovery, patient cohorts, etc .

Please add inpatient easy to view sections for blood glucose monitoring and anticoagulation! Currently using a version of cerner and it is so frustrating that we have no way to view this data in daily grid form (blood glucose listed with insulin given with each meal would be so nice) , it is listed as discrete data points in a time line you have to put together yourself.
