Google has launched a new “Share this profile” feature for Google Health that allows users invite others to view their (or family) medical /health information. Just log into Google Health, click on “Share this Profile,” and type in the email address. Google Health will send an email with a link to view your profile (only shared. and not any other one in your account).
- Privacy options: The link will only work with the email address — your profile can’t be accessed if the link is forwarded; you can stop sharing any time; link expires after 30 days; viewers can only see not edit Health profile; you can review, who has viewed your profile
You can also share a hard copy via wallet format prints — a wallet-sized card that includes a user’s medications, and allergies; the PDF format prints a letter-sized copy of a user’s profile, including medications, allergies, conditions, and treatments. Finally, new graphing feature helps patients visualize their medical test information.
