Google Maps Launched a COVID-19 Case Tracking Feature

Google Maps has released a new feature to track COVID-19 cases. To help people make informed decisions about where they’re going, this feature brings a whole new aspect to data tracking in healthcare. With data from Johns Hopkins, the World Health Organization, health agencies, hospitals, the New York Times, and Wikipedia, it’ll help with risk assessment. But what does this mean for tracking other infectious illnesses? Will this affect people’s decision to go to in-person visits vs. telehealth visits?

Connecting people to virtual care options

Healthcare providers like hospitals, doctors, and mental health professionals can now enter a virtual care offering in their Business Profile, so that people searching for their local provider, for instance, might see a ‚Äúget online care‚ÄĚ link on Search and Maps. Clicking this link will take people to that provider‚Äôs virtual care website where they can find more information, and in many cases, schedule a virtual healthcare visit with a provider.
