Healthcare software maker iTriage has announced that it plans to integrate Microsoft's HealthVault personal healthcare record (PHR) with its iPhone and Android apps next year enabling users to access their health records stored on Microsoft's service straight from their mobile devices.
"PHRs offer consumers a great way to monitor their health. Our iTriage vision includes being the mobile aggregator for multiple PHRs in the future," said Peter Hudson, MD and co-founder of iTriage.
"We believe today's HealthVault PHR integration into iTriage will give consumers a convenient and easy way to access their health information anywhere, anytime." he added.
The iTriage app allows users to access information on symptoms, medical conditions, medication and procedures straight from their mobile phones and even gives them suggestions regarding where they can get their medical condition treated.
The app has been used by more than 3 million people and is available from the iTunes App Store and Android Market as a free download.
iTriage, through the press release, indirectly asked Google Health users to migrate to Microsoft HealthVault.
