PharmaSURVEYOR's Advanced Drug Safety Service Connects to Microsoft HealthVault

Personalized drug assessment tool allows members to identify, diagnose and resolve drug side effects and interactions

SEATTLE, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- PharmaSURVEYOR ( announced the integration of their Advanced Drug Safety service with Microsoft HealthVault at the Microsoft Connected Health Conference. PharmaSURVEYOR offers a personalized drug assessment tool designed to show users not only drug-drug interactions but the much more common and often dangerous adverse drug side effects. HealthVault users will be able to run a survey of medications stored in their HealthVault account and PharmaSURVEYOR users will be able to easily create a HealthVault account to store their medications.

"PharmaSURVEYOR is proud to join the growing ecosystem of services connected by HealthVault," said Erick Von Schweber, Executive Co-Chair of PharmaSURVEYOR. "For example, a consumer can download a family member's medications to HealthVault from their pharmacy, run an Advanced Drug Safety survey of those medications and search for any symptoms they're having in PharmaSURVEYOR. Their safety survey will reveal which of their symptoms may actually be side effects, the medications that are more likely causing these and possible substitute drugs that can reduce their risk. The Advanced Drug Safety survey can be used in collaboration with their doctor to identify and diagnose those problems and get them resolved."

PharmaSURVEYOR is the only technology that goes beyond interaction checking to help reveal and reduce combined risks - the risks that add up across the drugs in a regimen even in the absence of chemical interactions. Combined risks were responsible for the death of Heath Ledger and other celebrities, whose drugs did not interact yet combined to lethal effect. While celebrity fatalities are highly visible, adverse effects and interactions are responsible for one in ten deaths in the U.S. - amounting to 4,000 fatalities every week - and have been estimated to cost the U.S. economy over $177 billion annually.

"Drug interaction checkers only flag interaction problems, not combined risks, and they don't help to resolve any problems; PharmaSURVEYOR does!" said Mr. Von Schweber. "PharmaSURVEYOR enables the HealthVault user to perform 'what-if' analyses, like using a spreadsheet, to simulate and evaluate the safety impact of changes to their drug regimen. There's nothing else like it."
