Today’s healthcare system is marked by great achievement and great opportunity. Yet technology advancements remain largely confined to clinical treatment. Patients are often disconnected from their health data, as well as their caregivers.
To meet this challenge, Microsoft offers a product designed to help usher healthcare into the digital age. Microsoft HealthVault is a free web-based platform that enables consumers to collect, store, and share their health information. It puts patients in control of their data and helps improve the relationship between their providers and your organization.
Connecting the healthcare ecosystem
Microsoft HealthVault offers a central repository for health information that individuals can gather from across the spectrum of healthcare. The HealthVault platform supports a growing ecosystem of connected, user-friendly applications, so individuals can keep a comprehensive, up-to-date record of their health information in a place where they can view and share it with whomever they choose.
Using HealthVault, patients can provide a copy of their health history and information, so hospitals can streamline the admissions process. Hospitals can also connect their own web portals with the HealthVault platform to facilitate the discharge process.
By working with HealthVault, healthcare associations can help members monitor their health, thereby building deeper relationships with their members.
In states where laboratory results can be provided directly to the patient, laboratories can personalize services and deliver results to a patient’s HealthVault record. Patients can share a copy of their laboratory results with providers, to help them make more informed health decisions.
Health and device manufacturers
New and existing health and fitness devices can be designed to work with HealthVault, so users can upload device data and share it with their doctors and loved ones. By offering solutions that let users manage their health, manufacturers can provide additional value to users and expand their market potential. Liberated from the costs and complexity of building a platform, manufacturing teams can focus on designing the most innovative product in the category and more swiftly realize their vision for intuitive, easy-to-use consumer devices, applications, and online services that share health data.
Microsoft HealthVault is currently available in many countries throughout the world. For more information on availability within your region, please contact us
