Larry Page: “Making our medical records open for sharing will save 100,000 lives a year”



Larry Page Ted 2014

In his Ted 2014 interview by Charlie Rose, Larry Page, cofounder and CEO of Google, pointed to the value and thousands of lives that could be saved by making medical records open for sharing with research Doctors.

With an appreciation of this opportunity and a personal fortune of $32.3 Billion it amazes me that Larry Page isn’t looking to acquire companies like Primetime Medical that have developed a clinically validated means of immortalising the clinical history taking skills of the worlds best Doctors. Imagine how many lives around the world would be impacted by solving the problems of access and making this skill set available anywhere that there is internet connectivity and the advances in the scientific understanding of care pathways that could be achieved if Google made it possible for anyone in the world to document and share their history from anywhere and at anytime?

If you could save 100,000 lives a year by sharing medical records that are largely entered into computers by time pressured healthcare professionals using Qwerty keyboards could you imagine the contribution that could be made if we all began properly documenting care processes?
