The youthful, hipster geniuses at Google were at it again yesterday where at a press event the company announced the launch of a number of search enhancements, a major one of which is the company’s Google Co-op that among other things enables users to sign-up for health related information guided by experts, USA Today reports.
           
By subscribing to the service, free information will be provided from a number of prominent healthcare organizations and governmental bodies, such as the Centers for Disease Control, the Mayo Clinic and Kaiser Permanente. Additionally, health information tips from representative experts from these organizations will also be provided in searches, according to USA Today.
           
Google Co-op will tailor search results depending on if you are a patient or healthcare professional. It should also be able to sort through a huge mass of information such as treatments either conventional or alternative, latest news, illness symptoms, and other information.
