Add Your Advanced Directive to Google Health – Specify Your Wishes in Case you are too ill or injured

This is a good idea and come to think of it, I need to get mine in there too.  My mother and I have hers altogether and it was one of the first items we put in her PHR.  BD 

SAN FRANCISCO — Google has invited people to store "end-of-life" wishes at its free online health records management service.

Google Health made available "advance directive" forms on which people can specify what they want doctors to do or not do in the event they are too ill or injured to express their wishes.

Forms created with collaboration from an organization specializing in elder care are available free for download online and can be customized to the laws in US states, according to Roni Zeiger and Julie Wilner of the Google Health team.
