Google Health, which went live in 2008 is closing shop on January 1, 2012. The service did not meet the desired objective for which it was started and fell short of expectations.
It was created to enable access to personal health and wellness information. Since its inception, periodic updates, improvements and features have been added to it.
Despite a reinvented personality and new look in September, with many fitness and wellness features, the product failed to make an impact and fell woefully short of expectations.
