Google icon (MMR), a provider of web-based personal health records (PHRs), will be integrating with the Google Health platform, which is expected to be launched later this year. is collaborating with Google Health to build a two-way interface that will enable users of Google Health to transfer information from their Google Health account into an MMR account and vice versa. MMR is a highly-secure, easy-to-use, and comprehensive PHR that uses proprietary, patent-pending technology to give patients and healthcare providers the ability to upload images, such as x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, faxed medical records and other important documents, and to have doctors’ notes dictated into an account.

The information is then accessible from any internet-connected computer from any location with no special hardware or software. An Emergency Login feature enables an emergency medical provider to access important information in the event of a medical emergency.

Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, previewed Google Health at the annual conference of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) last month. The company also announced that it is testing the Google Health product in a pilot program with the Cleveland Clinic.
