OWINGS MILLS, Md., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medifast, Inc. (NYSE: MED) today announced support for HealthVault, Microsoft Corp.'s newly launched consumer health platform. HealthVault will provide consumers with the ability to search, store and connect their health information, simplifying management of their health and wellness.

Medifast will provide a platform to allow its customers the ability to export or provide access to data collected through Medifast to any third parties, including but not limited to physicians, nurses, caregivers, family members and friends on Microsoft HealthVault. Medifast customers will each be provided with an independent Microsoft HealthVault account and have the ability to input, upload, store, view, share and interact with their health data while using the solution.

"Microsoft is in a unique position to bring some cohesion in health information to the weight management industry," said Michael S. McDevitt, chief executive and chief financial officer, Medifast, Inc. "By coordinating with Microsoft, we feel confident that HealthVault will provide consumers better access to better, evidence based and relevant health information, empowering them to make better decisions, receive better service and better value.

"Through our cooperative efforts, we will enable consumers to make better choices regarding their health by arming them with information and putting them in control of their health records.
