If you search for a particular symptom, Google will select results "backed by experts from Harvard Medical School and the Mayo Clinic". ... "The goal is to prevent patients from falling prey to inaccurate medical advice on the web. The feature will encourage patients to avoid self-diagnosis and take professional medical advice as and when necessary."

Essentially what this means is if you search for a health symptom keyword, Google will now filter out all alternative treatments and only show "results backed by experts".
