Software giant Microsoft has announced that they are acquiring the health care search engine Medstory. (http://www.medstory.com/)
Microsoft added that this acquisition widens its footprint in the health care segment and also shows that they are committed to the development of a “broader consumer health strategy.”
Medstory has already made available a beta version of their health care search engine online. The company claims that their search engine would offer more intelligent results than traditional Web scanning tools. Medstory further claims that they have loaded its engine with related information via close work with a number of medical organizations.
Interestingly, the search engine industry giant Google is also rumored to be working on a possible Google Health project.
