Jackson, WY (PRWEB) March 23, 2009 -- Each day more consumers are turning to webLAB to save time and money by ordering general wellness lab tests online. Physicians Wellness Network (PWN) today announced that consumers can now store, track and trend their webLAB test results in their Microsoft HealthVault account. HealthVault is an open, Web-based platform designed to empower consumers by putting them in control of their health information.

Informed Consumers Make Better Health Choices
"PWN physicians know that informed consumers make better health choices. Storing webLAB test results in a Microsoft HealthVault account makes this possible," said Brent Blue, M.D., president of PWN. "When people can track and trend important numbers, such as their cholesterol levels, they are armed with information to manage their health choices."

webLAB on HealthVault
Consumers no longer need to wait for weeks nor spend money on multiple doctor visit co-pays to get a basic wellness lab test. Instead, webLAB allows consumers to order up to four basic lab tests online with results delivered in days. Tests start at $54.95 and include a Diabetes Risk Assessment, General Wellness Assessment, Heart Risk Assessment and Prostate Cancer Risk Assessment. Consumers can download the results to their HealthVault account where they can track and trend webLAB test results for as long as they hold an account.

Consumers can also access webLAB through Live Search Health search results. webLAB is a mini-application that is displayed alongside search results and relevant to a customer's search query.

"Giving people the ability to move their health and wellness data online is an important step towards empowering informed health choices, made in partnership with their providers," said David Cerino, general manager for the Health Solutions Group at Microsoft Corp. "Storing and tracking webLAB test results in a HealthVault account enables consumers and their caregivers to view and monitor health information for improved health management and quality of care."

Medically Compliant, Consumer-Selected Lab Testing
After a consumer selects a test, a PWN physician in the consumer's own state reviews the order. The consumer can then visit a nearby laboratory drawing station for a blood sample, or a phlebotomist can conveniently take the sample at the consumer's own home or office.
Lab tests results are then reviewed by the same physician who approved the order and forwarded to the consumer in a matter of days from the time the specimen is collected. Results are easy to understand and securely stored for consumers to compare and trend future lab test results. In the event of a critical value (abnormal test result) PWN will contact the consumer directly.
