HealthVault for Patients

WHAT IS MICROSOFT HEALTHVAULT?

Microsoft HealthVault is a trusted place for people to gather, store, use, and share health information online.
You decide who can see, use, add, and share info, and which health apps will have access to your health information.
For more information, please visit: (www.healthvault.com)

You (Powered by Microsoft HealthVault) + Your HealthCareProvider (Powered by In Touch EMR)

In Touch EMR (the software your provider is using) is now integrated with Microsoft HealthVault.
What this means is that you can share your health records with your providers, keep track of progress and co-manage your information in Microsoft HealthVault.

Capture and store your information once, update it as needed and use it again and again.
Never leave your health info stranded in single-purpose websites and apps that other clinics have been using. You can access your information from any Internet connection, using a PC, smartphone, or tablet device.

Get more out of your clinic appointments by bringing important data with you:
• Up-to-date medication and allergy lists
• Recent home health readings (such as blood pressure and weight)
• Your health history
HealthVault helps you store, organize, and give your provider this information!

Be better prepared for an emergency by making your most important health info available for emergency responders.

Get your visit records on request. Your healthcare providers can now transfer your records instantly from In Touch EMR to your Microsoft HealthVault account. You can keep this record in HealthVault, to use and share as needed.
