HealthVault (http://www.healthvault.com/) is a free Web-based platform designed to put people in control of their health data. It helps them collect, store and share health information with family members and participating healthcare providers, and it provides people with a choice of third-party applications and devices to help them manage things such as fitness, diet and health. HealthVault also provides a privacy- and security-enhanced foundation on which a broad ecosystem of providers—from medical providers and health and wellness device manufactures to health associations—can build innovative new health and wellness management solutions to help put people in control of their and their family’s health.
To become a HealthVault development consultant, Microsoft requires that the consultant’s application has met all Microsoft requirements for going live and that its configuration has been propagated to Microsoft’s consumer environment.
