USA Today blogged that Google’s Marissa Mayer has hinted about a health-related offering from Google.
…I asked her why Google doesn’t have more vertical offerings, like for
health. Those tend to give users better results in a specific area.
Marissa then said, "Health is an interesting one — keep your eye out
for that next week." But that was about it. Considering that hint,
though, an announcement of a Google Health site seems a good bet.
It’s been almost a year since my June 15, 2005 post about the need for a strong healthcare offering on the web. I am excited by Google’s move, if it’s true.
