It is always interesting in a large organization, like Microsoft, because there are a lot of really great things the company does that most people don’t know about. For example in my last post I had stumbled across the Elevation of Privilege (EoP) Card Game card game. Well today I stumbled across the Microsoft Health Vault. It is a whole lot more than a little card game. Can you tell that I have been at a conference and have been browsing the web a bit?
So what is the Microsoft HealthVault? It is a platform from Microsoft to store and maintain health and fitness information. It was started back in October 2007. It enables you to store your health information “in the Cloud” and choose which healthcare professionals are allowed to access your information. There are also a large number of applications that integrate into HealthVault that can track your diet or your workouts and much more. There are even hardware devices which will automatically load your data up to your vault. Things like heart monitors etc.
