Mayo, Microsoft launch privacy and security-enhanced online application

The new application enables people to store medical information and access whenever they need it

By CBR Staff Writer

Mayo Clinic and Microsoft have launched Mayo Clinic Health Manager, a privacy- and security-enhanced online application that is reported to provide people with a place to store medical information and receive individualized health guidance and recommendations based on the clinical expertise of Mayo Clinic.

This interactive functionality extends the capabilities of traditional personal health records, using an individual’s health information to generate customized recommendations on which they can act to better manage their health and the health of their families, said Microsoft.

According to Microsoft, Mayo Clinic Health Manager is easy to use, with features designed for busy parents, adults who are managing the health concerns of aging parents and patients managing chronic conditions and multiple medications. Since the data is stored in Microsoft HealthVault, people can access their information whenever they need it – regardless of whether they change doctors, clinics, jobs or insurance plans.

David Cerino, general manager of the consumer health solutions group at Microsoft, said: Microsoft and Mayo Clinic came together because of our shared vision to help families take better care of their health. With Mayo Clinic Health Manager, we’ve combined the capabilities of Microsoft HealthVault with clinical leadership and health guidance from Mayo Clinic’s vast body of medical knowledge to develop an interactive and customized health solution.
