Google Health and my Google password

Google is infamous for not providing direct customer service. If you lose control of your Google Account you can be in deep trouble very quickly.

I thought of that as I experimented with entering my recent (yechy) lipid results into Google Health. Google Health is a part of my suite of Google services; if I lose control of my Google Account I also lose control of my personal health record (PHR).

How long will Google be able to provide a "PHR" without support services? Will they run into regulatory issues now that legislators threaten to extend HIPAA rules into the PHR domain?
