Google Medical Scrapbook - The Real Google Health?

VC Ratings has information about a new Google service, Google Medical Scrapbook, a health vertical that will manage medical information.

"The plan, as it stands now, calls for there to be four different directories for each different type of user. The prospect of listing a separate directory for medical devices seems to have been scrapped. Users will be able to log in with their own account information and do things such as add a new medical provider, check their medical records or pay their bills.

The product would also provide information about hospitals such as the frequency that a hospital performs a specific type of procedure or which hospitals perform which procedures most often."

Google has already launched Google Co-op, a service that lets you add refinements for search queries. People can label web pages relevant to their areas of expertise, like health or travel. If you search for [AIDS], you'll find some links at the top of the page that let make your query more specific.

Google Medical Scrapbook seems to be more useful, but also more difficult to develop.

Here's the login for the service, that doesn't work, for the moment.
