Dr. Eric does a great interview with Steve Aylward and covers quite a few areas of discussion relative to Microsoft Health and Life Sciences in this video. He discusses Allscripts and their involvement in the Health IT movement. In addition HealthVault is discussed and where the model is today and where it is going in the future and making it available beyond the United States. Telus in Canada is discussed as an example which was recently in the news.
HealthVault’s focus now is working on partnerships to add medical devices that are integrated; however he mentions too that any consumer is free to set up an account at any time as it always has been. The devices enable real time integration and the video shares a bit on a personal level how Steve and his wife are able to view and share their own HealthVault information if needed. Also discussed is the Microsoft search engine “Bing” and how it mines and searches healthcare information. Not too long ago I interviewed Mike Naimoli, US Director of Microsoft Life Sciences so for a deeper in depth look, use the link below for additional information.
Steve Aylward the General Manager for Health and Life Sciences at Microsoft® discusses with EHRtv the future of Microsoft. Microsoft understands that the Healthcare Industry needs to make drastic improvements in sharing medical records across environments. Therefore, Microsoft believes that they are able to contribute.
