Mayo Clinic and Microsoft Deliver a Powerful and Personalized Consumer Solution for Managing Health
Date:4/21/2009

linic Health Manager can help patients share information more easily with their doctors and manage their own health better between office visits." Mayo Clinic Health Manager is easy to use, with features designed for busy parents, adults who are managing the health concerns of aging parents, and patients managing chronic conditions and multiple medications. Since the data is stored in Microsoft HealthVault, people can access their information whenever they need it - regardless of whether they change doctors, clinics, jobs or insurance plans.

In its initial offering, Mayo Clinic Health Manager will include tools and features that help manage: pediatric wellness, immunizations, adult wellness, pregnancy and asthma. Additional features will be incorporated in the upcoming months that will help users manage Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. In addition, Mayo Clinic and Microsoft will work to add new functionality and health guidance.

The health guidance is developed, reviewed and approved by a team of health care experts at Mayo Clinic and will be updated regularly to reflect best practices in health care. The technology was built on the Microsoft HealthVault platform, a security-enhanced online environment.

"Microsoft and Mayo Clinic came together because of our shared vision to help families take better care of their health," said David Cerino, general manager of the Consumer Health Solutions Group at Microsoft. "With Mayo Clinic Health Manager, we've combined the capabilities of Microsoft HealthVault with clinical leadership and health guidance from Mayo Clinic's vast body of medical knowledge to develop an interactive and customized health solution. It's a great match of technological innovation and health expertise that will help people live healthier lives."
