Google is reportedly working on a new Health application. It has surfaced in a leak shared by reliable tipster Ishan Agarwal with 91Mobiles, an online publication. There are a couple of screenshots revealing some of the app's functionalities. The major difference is support for adding patient's medical records.
The app features four tabs named Home, Records, Contacts, and Sharing. One of the screenshots makes it clear that it is an early version of the app. It means there is still time for final release and things can always change. For the time, Google is confirmed to be working on allowing users to connect their medical records with the app.
The dedicated Records page on the app describes itself as, "See a unified view of your health, pulling together info from your doctor's visits, labs, and more". It will require users to link their online healthcare accounts with the app. It will work as a single destination for checking all medical health records regardless of the healthcare facility you got or are getting treatment from.
It seems like users will also be able to add contacts that can be reached in case of emergency needs. There is also a Sharing option which seems to be a way for users to share their medical records with each other. These are only speculations of how these sections might work. We will have to wait to see exactly how the Google Health app works.
