Connection to Provide Patients with Access to Greater Amounts of Personal Health Information, More Control of Health Data
ATLANTA — Jan. 31, 2011 —
Liaison Technologies, a global provider of secure cloud-based integration and data management services and solutions, announced today an agreement with Microsoft to connect its services to Microsoft HealthVault, a personal health application platform. The connection with Liaison’s services will enable HealthVault users to access more data from more sources while maintaining absolute control over personal health information, including who users choose to share it with.
“Microsoft HealthVault is a leader in transforming the way patients engage in the care process,” said Gary Palgon, Liaison’s vice president of healthcare solutions. “We’re honored to be part of this initiative and help further its mission by connecting more organizations with Microsoft HealthVault.”
The collaboration will make it easier for patients to be in command over their personal health data by connecting with more than 300 applications and 70 devices that help individuals maintain fitness goals, keep track of records and prescriptions and lead healthier lives overall. For instance, if a patient wears an “electronic band aid”, which monitors the patient’s vitals, Liaison enables that health information to be securely accessed by the patient through Microsoft HealthVault.
By working together, Liaison and Microsoft HealthVault will also help to avoid duplication of procedures, incorrect doses of medication, drug-to-drug interaction issues and other errors sometimes associated with traditional record keeping.
