Google To Highlight Vetted Medical Data in Health-Related Search Results
On Tuesday, Google announced that is working with the Mayo Clinic to display accurate results for health-related queries in a new way. About one in 20 Google searches is for a health-related term. The search engine will leverage its Knowledge Graph -- a Google function that creates a "smarter" search by combining the companies search algorithm with internal and publicly available datasets -- to display relevant health information in a box at the top of a user's search results page. The information will be pulled from trusted medical websites and has been vetted by a team of doctors at Google and another team at the Mayo Clinic.
