The pilot will give Cleveland Clinic patients the ability to share information with multiple providers and pharmacies nationwide, while allowing GoogleHealth the opportunity to test features and services within a secure electronic environment. The goal of the pilot is to verify the portability, access and security of the data. Between 1,500 and 10,000 patients will be invited to participate.
