Connecting Hospitals with Patients and Referring Physicians

[By Staff Reporters]

At the recent 2010 Annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference & Exhibition here in Atlanta, Microsoft announced Microsoft HealthVault Community Connect, a new software solution for hospitals designed to help them improve care coordination and engage patients and their families in managing their own health.

Improving Coordination of Care

HealthVault Community Connect reports to enable hospitals to give patients and referring physician’s access, after discharge, to electronic copies of the patient’s personal health data generated at the hospital. The product also lets patients pre-register for hospital appointments online using their electronic personal health information to populate hospital forms in advance.


Microsoft HealthVault Community Connect lets hospitals exchange electronic patient health information with patients and referring doctors. The new solution is scheduled to be available in the third quarter of 2010.



So, give em’ a click and tell us what you think.

  1. Before there were commercial eMRs … or at least pre-ARRA and HITECH

    About six years ago, my colleague Ahmad Hashem MD PhD from Microsoft, sent me these digital health stories:

    •Cecil Lynch, an M.D. and medical informaticist who teaches at the University of California at Davis is using Microsoft Access to help the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) enhance the efficiency of its disease surveillance system.

    •Dr. Duke Cameron of the Division of Cardiac Surgery, Johns Hopkins Hospital, came up with the idea of using the Outlook Calendar to schedule operating rooms, to help assure the OR is properly setup with specific implant devices and other special equipment or supplies before the surgical team arrives.

    •Nick Hoda, a psychologist-in-training at Mississippi State University, uses Microsoft Excel charts and graphs to show his elementary school clients coping with learning and behavioral problems – that their behavior really is getting better. He uses the same charts with teachers and administrators to win his young clients another chance at the classroom.

    Bright minds, all!

  2. Encryption is a must

    “Microsoft’s HealthVault gets encrypted e-mailing” by Josh Lowensohn was posted on cnet today.


    “Microsoft is trying to tighten up security on medical information that is sent by e-mail, while at the same time making it easier to share.

    At a U.S. Department of Heath and Human Services event earlier today in Washington, D.C., the company unveiled an updated version of its HealthVault medical records system that can send encrypted copies of a patient’s medical records via e-mail …”

    It looks like the HIT industry has finally done something right by developing inexpensive and efficient solutions to successfully reduce most of the danger of emailing patients their medical information. That is a huge under-rated step to winning over consumers to the idea of interoperable eHRs and the seemingly magic cures from Evidence Based Medicine discoveries. If the healthcare industry can combine HIPAA-friendly emailing with recent advancements in the science of data-masking, it’s my opinion that the subsequent advances in healthcare through safe data-mining of millions of records will lead to miracles some of us have been dreaming about for decades. Suddenly, true advancement in healthcare becomes not that far out of reach.

    This would be a terrible time to blow consumers’ confidence in security just to rush careless ideas to a trusting and naïve market for quick profits. If we allow greedy stakeholders to screw this up using our grandchildren’s ARRA money, at least a few generations will be worse off than if we never bothered changing from paper records – the gold standard of patient privacy and historically adequate, but far from spectacular.

    Now then, if all HIPAA-covered entities will do their part and encrypt patients’ PHI at rest, or perhaps give up the maintenance and liability of patients’ records to encrypted cloud computing, the huge security obstacle to interoperable patient records will be all but eliminated… at least until the first breach of millions of encrypted but unreported PHI is belatedly discovered by a rash of identity thefts.

    If we blow it, you and I won’t live long enough to regain the trust of most Americans, regardless of the potential good that can come from transparency in medicine.

  3. Putting Your Personal Health Records Online?

    Dr. Marcinko and Dr. Pruitt – Just Say No!

    It’s the up and coming health tool, being offered by all the big players for “free” and if you are smart, you will choose to pass it by.


    Limitations of Electronic Patient Record Keeping

    Privacy and security issues are many … maybe too many.




  4. New and Improved

    Microsoft HealthVault offers patients and their families an online central repository for health information—collected at home, the doctor’s office, hospital, pharmacy, gym, and anywhere in between.

    As an ever evolving technology platform, HealthVault supports a growing ecosystem of connected, user-friendly tools, so people can keep a comprehensive, up-to-date record of their health information online in a place where they can view and share it with whomever they see fit.
