AMA and Microsoft Collaboration to enhance patient-physician communication
American Medical Association, June 16, 2009
The American Medical Association has announced it is working with Microsoft to better connect patients with their physicians through Microsoft's HealthVault, a platform developed by Microsoft to store and maintain health and fitness information. Through this collaboration, physicians will be able to access self reported patient health information at the point of care, while enabling patients to access vital information that has been entered through the physician's office, according to an AMA release.
