Googlewave for improving healthcare

There are several potential uses for Google Wave in the healthcare context. The first, most powerful use is the ability of the health community to implement patient-centered communication. Doctors and patients are able to initiate communicate around a condition and all things related to the patient's condition are captured within a wavelet (individual conversations/collaborations). Things like MRI's and test results can be appended to a wave and doctors and specialists can collaborate through the wave. Since the communication is server-based, these conversations can be captured, secured, tagged, searched.

This is great way of improving doctor-patient communication as well as patient-patient communication !
