Google is piloting a telemedicine program that connects web searchers of medical information to doctors, the tech giant confirmed to Engadget this week.
The service will allow people who search for symptoms to connect with a doctor via video chat. For now, the service is in a pilot phase and the company is covering the costs. Other details on the service have not been released.
Grand Prairie, Texas-based Rainbow Children's Clinic was the victim of a ransomware attack on its IT systems in August, affecting more than 33,000 patients, according to multiple news media reports this week.
