CTIS is pleased to announce the transition of mPHR™, its mobile personal health record application, from Google Health™ to Microsoft HealthVault. CTIS has launched the mPHR 2 application using the Microsoft HealthVault platform following Google’s announcement about discontinuing Google Health. mPHR 2 provides an easy way for users to visualize the data within the HealthVault account through a connected iPhone, iPad and Android applications. Supported by the iOS and Android operating systems, mPHR 2 allows for a near real-time synchronization with the comprehensive wellness metrics found on the Microsoft HealthVault users’ account that tracks things such as blood pressure or caloric consumption or blood sugar or your heart rate, so the users can maintain a diary of their progress in order to achieve their personal health goals.
Microsoft HealthVault is a platform designed to put consumers in control of their health information. HealthVault enables users to store and share data among different health solutions and upload data from devices, giving consumers easy access to their health information. More than 80 devices—including blood pressure monitors, glucometers, oximeters, and pedometers—can connect to HealthVault in support of health and fitness tracking.
By connecting to HealthVault, CTIS’ mPHR 2 is positioned to add significant value to the health application market, enabling users to manage their wellness by using a wide range of health metrics. CTIS’ Executive Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer, Mr. Mehul Shah says “We are extremely excited at the potential to use mobile health to reduce costs, improve outcomes and enhance quality. We hope this initial release will be a strong product for patients to realize these goals.”
With chronic disease patients in mind, mPHR 2 is uniquely designed as the one-stop-shop for complete disease management tools, ranging from a personalized health module displaying active medical concerns to a dynamic graphic tool for tracking longitudinal changes in lab results. The interoperability of mPHR 2 allows individuals to provide input on how much of a particular medication is remaining and automatically sends warning messages to refill a prescription when the medication is running low.
Since its release into the Apple store and Android marketplace, CTIS has been encouraged by the responsive acclaim that mPHR has received. This past year, mPHR was featured on iTunes AppStore Health & Fitness “What’s Hot” category. The mPHR application is currently a free download on the iTunes AppStore and Android marketplace.
CTIS is proud to be collaborating with Microsoft. For more information regarding mPHR 2 and other products offered by CTIS, please visit http://www.ctisinc.com.
