One more partner setting up with Microsoft HealthVault for personal health records. The software partner, Get Real Consulting specializes in helping vendors create software that will link and input information to the HealthVault.
“We can enable a broad spectrum of solutions one from one-way data transfer to bi-directional synchronization. By interoperating with HealthVault, our clients have a bridge to numerous other health information systems.
We are able to implement Health IT standards-based solutions such as Continuity of Care Records (CCRs) and solutions based on data standards such as SNOMED CT.”
Lifeclinic personal health records will also connect to the HealthVault. What is interesting with the development of the PHR, is that many of the existing portals and software projects on the market are now realizing the importance of connecting to a product that is secure and universally available from any internet connected computer, and have the availability to take records with you, in the case of some of the employer or other types of records that are typically just '”in house” and available only when one is a member or patient of that facility.
It appears some of the freestanding units, perhaps as found in a store for example, will now be able to send your reading direct to your HealthVault account. There will probably be more information forthcoming as the project develops. BD

Kelly, M.D., Ph.D. says, "Because of the power and excellence of the Microsoft brand, the HealthVault platform is becoming one of the largest and most well-respected portals within the healthcare community.
