Mayo Clinic Health Manager Now Includes Features for People Managing Hypertension and High Cholesterol
Date:9/24/2009

ROCHESTER, Minn. and REDMOND, Wash., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of Mayo Clinic and Microsoft Corp.'s shared vision to help families take better care of their health, the two companies have made enhancements to Mayo Clinic Health Manager, a free online application designed to help people organize and better manage their health. People with conditions such as hypertension and high cholesterol will now have access to a variety of trackers and up-to-date information to help keep their conditions under control.

Users of Mayo Clinic Health Manager now will have access to stress, blood pressure and cholesterol trackers, as well as to additional guidance and information, allowing them to easily track and manage these conditions.

"We are committed to continually updating health guidance to reflect ever-changing best practices. Our new features help people suffering from hypertension and high cholesterol better manage their health based on the expertise of Mayo Clinic physicians," said Sidna Tulledge-Scheitel, M.D., a primary care physician at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester and medical director of Mayo Clinic Global Products and Services. "The fields of technology and medicine are constantly advancing, and Mayo Clinic Health Manager will continue to evolve so our users will always have the best health information and tools."

The updated Mayo Clinic Health Manager also includes a "Tell-a-Friend" sharing link on each page that allows users to inform family members about useful features of the product and new immunization enhancements. This functionality targets busy parents who not only need to accurately track their children's immunization list, but to understand what immunizations are needed and allow them to easily share the list with schools, sports camps and doctors.

Mayo Clinic Health Manager launched last April, offering easy-to-use features designed for busy parents and adults who are managing the health concerns of aging parents, and patients managing chronic conditions and multiple medications. The site also allows people to organize health information for themselves and their families in a single location for a lifetime. The data is stored in Microsoft HealthVault, so people can access their information when they need it -- regardless of whether they change doctors, clinics, jobs or insurance plans.

Mayo Clinic Health Manager gives users access to the right information at the right time to help them make the best decisions possible. Consumers can learn more about Mayo Clinic Health Manager at www.mayoclinic.com.
