google-health-logo-200px.gifThe Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google will announce its long-awaited online health service featuring “personal health records” today. A closer reading of that story, however — bolstered by a timely CNET piece — suggests that Google will simply preview its service at a healthcare-IT trade show now underway in Orlando.

A preview is better than nothing, of course. But if that’s all Google has planned today, it’s really not much of a launch. We unpack the WSJ coverage and survey the Google Health landscape over at VentureBeat Life Sciences.
