Microsoft Introduces HealthVault Personal Health Records

Posted by on October 4th, 2007 Posted in: News from NLM


On October 4, 2007 Microsoft announced a new consumer health product – HealthVault – a freely available personal health record that consumers can access on the web. The new resource also includes an Internet search tailored for health queries. Microsoft has partnered with other health agencies and organizations to contribute to the project. They are hoping that patients will coordinate with their health care providers to add individual health information to their records at www.healthvault.com Where do librarians fit into this project? It’s hard to determine from the information currently available.

As a consumer, my first question to Microsoft would be: “What standards is this medical records vault based on” ?

Check microsoft’s history on the Open Document Format.
