Google Health re-launched today. It’s Google big…I’m still crawling through it, but I have to say it’s pretty comprehensive on first blush. Here’s their description:

Manage your Health Information Online
Is your health information in disarray? Google Health can help by offering a single place to organize and store you health information online. Track your wellness metrics, gather and organize your medical records, or import your health data directly into your account from connected doctors, hospitals and retail pharmacies. You can even create multiple profiles for family members or others you care for.

Set Personal Health Goals
Do you want a better way to track your goals for weight, blood pressure, or other wellness metrics? Have you ever wanted to track your sleep patterns, record how much you walk during the day, or track your progress at the gym? Or are you trying to overcome a health problem or caring for someone who is? With Google Health you can set personalized goals online and monitor them regularly.

Track your Progress
Create custom trackers for things you want to monitor like daily like sleep, how much coffee you drink a day, or how many times you exercise a week. You can also take notes or keep a diary on your how you are doing with a particular medical condition or a personal goal you set.

Share your Health Information
Help better coordinate your care by sharing your health records with individuals in your care network – family members, friends and doctors. Share your wellness goals and progress notes with family and friends. You can stop sharing at any time and you will always be able to see who has access to your information. You can also print a wallet-sized version of your health profile to share with your doctor or family members in person.

Personalize your Health Needs with Content and Apps/Devices
Access content about health topics from trusted sources and Google search results. You can also connect to apps that are integrated with Google Health that will help you better manage your health needs using our partner directory.

HR: Meet Google. Google: Meet HR.
