Sounds like a win for users looking for accurate health care information, but a loss for the small custom software developers with a focus on healthcare out there.

Well, it does look like there are a number of startups in this area as well. I think that the startups will play a role as well: Revolution Health, Healtheva, TrustedMd to name a few.
