With its recent launch of several new features, Google Health is looking to become the go-to database for online medical health records.

Google Health launched in the spring of 2008, but the Official Google Blog revealed today that the database can now support scanned paper documents. This means that even paper health records can coexist with digital ones.

Another pertinent new Google Health feature is the ability to add an advance directive. This signed, uploaded paper document (done through Caring Connections) would express your wishes to your family and doctors should something befall you and render you unable to communicate.
