(PRWEB) March 3, 2010 -- American Specialty Health (ASH), a leading national health and wellness company, has selected White Pine Systems, LLC (White Pine), a leading provider of personal health record applications, to offer personal health records connected to Microsoft HealthVault as a part of its Healthyroads® program. Through the arrangement, ASH will offer a brand-able, configurable personal health record to health plans, insurance carriers, and employer groups. White Pine’s personal health record solution is called SPINNphrTM (Secure Personal Information & Notification Network).

ASH provides comprehensive wellness services including Internet-based, personal health improvement programs and telephone-based wellness coaching to help individuals take charge of their personal health.

“We’ve been looking at the emerging market for personal health records and different products for quite some time,” said George DeVries, chairman, CEO and co-founder of ASH. “With its focus on care units and the management of chronic medical conditions, SPINNphr is the right personal health record solution for our customers. Our health assessment, coaching, and other wellness programs can help lower costs and improve the quality of life. Now, with the addition of SPINNphr, we are able offer a new level of consumer empowerment and control to our customers.”

Typical PHR offerings are stuck in silos to present information. SPINNphr allows people to organize their data around their specific health interests called “care units,” so they can quickly and easily view and manage the information most important to them.

“We are thrilled to have been selected by ASH to be a part of their health and wellness programs,” said Doug Dormer, White Pine’s founder and CEO. “Through SPINNphr, people can personalize their personal health record around their own specific interests whether it is fitness, the management of heart disease, diabetes, or even pregnancy. Combining this innovative approach with ASH’s coaching and wellness offerings makes a very powerful solution to improve health.”

SPINNphr stores personal health information in Microsoft HealthVault, a personal health application platform that allows consumers to collect and share their health information online. As a part of the HealthVault community, ASH’s clients will be able to exchange information with a growing number of health care providers and solutions that connect to HealthVault.

“Through this collaboration, ASH customers will be able to provide their users with a way to become active partners in their ongoing health management - accessing their information through HealthVault, a Web-based data storage platform that connects to personal health records and other health and wellness applications,” said David Cerino, general manager, Microsoft Health Solutions Group. “With the ability to view their personal information and share it with trusted healthcare providers, people will be empowered to make more informed decisions about their health and the health of their families.”
