Many of the Tenet hospitals are McKesson Clients. The Relay Health network will be able to connect to the patient’s file “The RelayHealth network then connects the consumer's portfolio of information with the care provider and unifies the management of the personal health record." Physicians will be able to review the information and share information with patients or other physicians. This can work well with prescribing through the network as a physician for a simple example could choose to share the medication with the HealthVault, so the patient could have it available as well.
In addition on the web page there are a number of videos that show how the HealthVault is currently and potentially used at the hospital. Also just recently in the news was the announcement from Longs Drugs to also begin offering HealthVault services in the near future.
In addition, new certification logos are available for certified devices after going through the process. BD
