Google might be getting into the analytics of electronic medical records. Google’s Co-CEO, Larry Page, was interviewed during the company’s Google I/O event. He noted that health care data is not collected or collected in a meaningful way. This is due to concerns of privacy and regulations. He pondered what impact access to health care data would have on society. He figured Google could save 100,000 lives in the next year if it could develop health care data analytics.

If Google was given access to personal health care data, what would the impact be on society? What considerations would Google need to make if it could improve the analysis of epidemiological data?

Google would need to let people opt in or out of participating in medical records mining. People who opt in must also not be identifiable individually. That way, their data remains anonymous and the mining of their records could not in any way identify an individual’s identity.
