Microsoft has launched HealthVault, a software and services platform aimed at helping consumers better manage their health.

HealthVault will bring the health and technology industries together to create new applications, services and connected devices that help people manage and monitor everything from weight loss to diabetes. HealthVault was developed in conjunction with patient and privacy advocacy organizations, security experts and leading health care organizations to enhance privacy while helping protect people and provide them the control they expect and require.

“People are concerned to find themselves at the center of the healthcare ecosystem today because they must navigate a complex web of disconnected interactions between providers, hospitals, insurance companies and even government agencies,” said Peter Neupert, corporate vice president of the Health Solutions Group at Microsoft. “Our focus is simple: to empower people to lead healthy lives. The launch of HealthVault makes it possible for people to collect their private health information on their terms and for companies across the health industry to deliver compatible tools and services built on the HealthVault platform.”
