Approximately 300 applications are connected to the HealthVault platform to help people lead healthier lives and manage a wide range of conditions, such as allergies, asthma, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, pregnancy and several others. HealthVault also connects to more than 70 devices—including blood pressure monitors, blood glucose monitors, weight scales, pedometers and peak flow meters—allowing individuals to easily track, manage and share important health data in support of their health and fitness goals.
Microsoft also is focused on enabling hospitals to connect to HealthVault as they seek to create closer, more efficient and interactive relationships with patients through the exchange of information. Health systems are using Microsoft Amalga, an enterprise health intelligence platform, to bring patient data together from disparate IT systems to streamline operations and coordinate care. These organizations then are connecting Amalga to HealthVault to allow the patient to receive, store and share his or her personal health information as desired.
