EHRtv Interviews Steve Aylward, Microsoft’s General Manager for Health & Life Sciences

Posted Aug 06 2009 10:34pm

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 image 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.
