Google electronic health records

This is interesting: Google is working with the Cleveland Health Clinic, USA, to devise a system of electronic health records. At the moment, this is a pilot study. But if the system is successful, this has huge implications for the standardization of medical health records through out the world.

What are your thoughts about this? Would you like to have access to your health records? How would you feel about having your own electronic health records? What would your concerns be? What do you feel are the advantages?
