Healthvault, Phase 1

October 8, 2007

Health Vault is a new initiative from Microsoft that intends to be a solution for putting medical records “online” in a secure and practical way. So far it has gotten some good reviews from progressive doc blogs, such as Medical Quack, primarily because of the “secure” part of the equation. In fact Health Vault’s tagline is “Be well. Protected.” That is pretty unfriendly, but I guess it has to start from this premise because the security of health records is indeed a real concern of most people. I’ve signed up. The hardest part was coming up with a “strong” password they would accept. It’s pretty silly because I had to write it down so I wouldn’t forget it since it was not my usual one.
