Guess what Google’s up to now! They’re setting up a pilot project with the Cleveland Clinic to house patient medical records in a secure site on Google.

Here’s a Seattle Times article on it, which addresses privacy concerns

Here’s a Wireless Healthcare article

Here’s the Cleveland Clinic’s own announcement

I couldn’t find a Google announcement.
