ApoThera Medication Management and Review Services – Using HealthVault Medication Records You Share for Access

Posted Jun 04 2009 10:41pm

This company also works with Microsoft HealthVault and and is an annual subscription to have your medications reviewed by their image pharmacists/consultants before a provider can add any additional medications to your regime.  So far it is available in 3 states, California, Nevada and Ohio.  Just my own thinking here, but you might want to advise your physician before you enroll.

With using the HealthVault and importing all your medications from the various drug stores and mail order services, this could be a short but simple project.  The site states that you can view your information via the site, but you need to log into the HealthVault to do any modifications or changing, which keeps everything in your control and is stored within HealthVault and not on any servers at ApoThera.  BD
