Microsoft HealthVault Insights, a research-based project designed to transform patient engagement by generating new insights about patient health has announced integration with digital health integration platform Validic. The integration with Validic will enable HealthVault Insights to connect to as many as 400 clinical and consumer devices – enabling the data from these devices to drive meaningful insights for patients.
Using machine learning and analytics, HealthVault Insights is designed to generate new insights about patient health, drive adherence to care plans, and encourage patient engagement. As a key backend component, Validic powers the ability for patients to connect their in-home medical devices and wearables to HealthVault Insights. For Providers, the data from these devices provides contextual information into a patient’s lifestyle, activities, and health data.
Combined with data from the patient’s electronic health record and analyzed by Microsoft’s extensive machine learning capabilities, the patient receives trends and correlations to improve the management of their general wellness and to help patients live well with certain chronic conditions. Correspondingly, the clinician can remotely view the patient’s adherence and engagement with a provider-defined care program to track the patient’s progress and health data.
For patients, the active engagement in the day-to-day management of their health drives personal responsibility for outcomes. For providers, this functionality supports delivery of care on a continuum by providing additional visibility into their patients’ health and their wellness habits through an easy to use platform.
We are working to bring together critical data sources with machine learning to deliver personalized, actionable insights to both patients and clinicians. Validic provides a core data channel for HealthVault Insights – enabling device data connectivity to hundreds of devices. This collaboration helps us continue to build a seamless experience for the patient while providing unique insights to the care team,” said Heather Jordan Cartwright, General Manager, Artificial Intelligence and Research at Microsoft Corp.
