The Future of Medical Record Technology

Google announced last week that they would close the doors on their medical project, Google Health, leaving an opening for a new player in the medical record tech industry. Google Health was designed as a “personal health record service," a place where patients could voluntarily store all of their health records, in hopes of centralizing their treatment information. The medical industry has limitless room for growth, considering that almost 80 percent of medical records are on paper.


John Moore, research assistant and PhD candidate at MIT Media Lab's New Media Medicine group, hopes that his project "CollaboRhythm" will pick up where Google Health is leaving off.
