EHRs giving boost to mobile personal health records

Article

EHRs may be breathing new life into the mobile personal health record market. The mobile format encourages development of applications that allow patients to manage chronic diseases, make appointments, and perform other tasks.

Electronic health records (EHRs) may be breathing new life into the mobile personal health record market.

Microsoft announced recently that HealthVault now is mobile, with the Windows Phone 7 version already released and the Apple and Android versions expected later this summer.

Sean Nolan, chief architect and general manager of Microsoft's Health Solutions Group, says in his blog that the mobile format "makes complete sense for health, where virtually all meaningful activity happens away from our laptops: office visits, emergencies, workouts, daily glucose testing, sleeping, you name it."

Consumers are willing to spend money on health-related technologies-as much as $13.6 billion according to a recent Price Waterhouse survey.
