Microsoft introduces a new application for Windows 8, HealthVault, which would be helping hospitals to keep track of patients list online. Now all work gets done over the internet from airline ticket booking to social networking, job applying to watch live cricket streaming and much more.
Well keeping this view, Microsoft used extensive highly profitable, health care business while announcing a number of health care related efforts. One of those announcements was a plan for Microsoft to launch its own HealthVault app for Windows 8. Check it out Microsoft press release below.
HealthVault enables consumers to collect, store and securely share their personal health information, and connects to hundreds of third-party services and devices that make it easy to keep that information up to date. The new app brings this critical family information to life with a modern, touch-first user experience on Surface and other Windows 8 devices.
Well, Microsoft did not declare the release date for the HealthVault for Windows 8. According to the report, Microsoft launched HealthVault in 2007 as a web based service and has since launched apps for iOS and Windows phone devices.
