The new Google Search feature will display appointment availability for select providers, making it easier to book doctor’s appointments. However, the feature is currently being tested and will be available soon across the United States, albeit for a limited number of providers at first.
When people have health-related questions, they frequently turn to the internet for answers. In an attempt to make booking a doctor’s appointment convenient, Google has collaborated with CVS’ MinuteClinic and other scheduling providers. So when the feature becomes fully operational the users can simply book a doctor’s appointment by conducting a quick search. The feature was introduced at the tech giant’s second annual Google Health event, The Check-Up.
Google Search has released a feature that will show appointment availability for healthcare providers, allowing you to easily book an appointment. Whether you put off your annual check-up, recently moved and need a new doctor, or need a same-day visit to a CVS MinuteClinic, you may find available appointment dates and times for doctors in your area.
Please keep in mind that the feature to book a doctor’s appointment through Google Search is still in the works and is being rolled out to limited users. Through the search results, users will be able to see the available appointment dates and times for doctors in the area.
So when you search for a specific practitioner or facility on Google Search, appointment availability will appear. If a suitable appointment date appears, click the Book button next to the available schedule. It will direct you to a third-party booking website.
Google Search team recently released features to assist people in navigating the complex healthcare system and making more informed decisions, such as locating healthcare providers who accept their insurance.
Aside from that, Google has announced that Fitbit is developing an AFib algorithm that will work in conjunction with the PPG (Photoplethysmography) AFib algorithm, which passively examines heart rate data to detect signs of an irregular heart rhythm.
The study findings were presented by Google at the most recent American Heart Association meeting, demonstrating that the algorithm correctly identified undiagnosed AFib 98 percent of the time. However, it has submitted the algorithm for FDA approval.
