More on Health Vault

October 7, 2007

The e-Care Management blog gave a more detailed analysis of HealthVault and a comment adds to this. He tells us not to go to the HealthVault website because we will be confronted with sparse and confusing information. Partly this is because Microsoft in their FAQ says that it is not a PHR, but a ” personal health technology platform that lets you gather, store and share health information online.”

The real potential for this tool appears to be the remote monitoring or monitoring a condition through a partner’s website. There may also be potential to pull in information from other PHRs or personal health information stored in other systems. But that remains to be demonstrated. Let’s hope Microsoft begins to clarify their offering as time goes on.
