If you look at electronic health records initiative, it is massive. But the personal health records are only a small piece of it. So, I am not convinced how can Google be the big beneficiary. Moreover, there are already about 50 or so personal health record systems out there such as Microsoft Healthvault etc. Customers can choose any of those products and the govt. cannot control. That means Google can only get a tiny bit if this initiative is ever implemented.
