More HealthVault Information

My previous post about Microsoft’s HealthVault was my initial reaction to the announcement of Microsoft entering the healthcare market. While I still haven’t personally had a chance to really review HealthVault in depth, I still think that this could be one of the biggest announcements in healthcare in a long time. Some people might say that says something about healthcare IT, but I think it is just the beginning of a lot of big players in the technology industry to take a serious look at healthcare IT.

Of course, that would make me happy, because I’m certain that EMR’s and EHR’s are the future of healthcare and competition is great for the consumer.

Well, here’s some other things I’ve found about Microsoft’s HealthVault. Most interesting is going to be watching the Microsoft HealthVault blog. Maybe that’s because I’m a crazy blog lover, but I love the idea of being in contact with the people that make it happen. Open communication is the best.

Also, here’s an interview with Peter Neupert talking about the significance of his group’s acquisitions of Azyxii and MedStory for clinicians and consumers and of course HealthVault.
