eHealth for All: Launch of Assignio Health Platform

MicrosoftAt Medica 2010 in Dusseldorf, Microsoft's HealthVault team, represented by Jens Dommel, Head of HealthVault, Western Europe at The Microsoft Health Solutions Group, announced the launch in Germany of Assignio, a health platform based on the HealthVault Microsoft technology. The platform, which will be operated and marketed by Siemens IT Solutions, marks a change in the way individuals can approach their health and wellness and will steer the German health sector in a new direction.

During Medica 2010 in Dusseldorf, Microsoft's team is expecting to hear various discussions around innovation and development in the healthcare ecosystem with believe that Assignio, using HealthVault technology, is one example of how innovation can change the industry. By introducing HealthVault to the German market Siemens will help bridge the information gap between citizens and the professional medical and healthcare organisations that they interact with on an on-going basis.

HealthVault provides a central repository for people to record data on their health & wellness, ranging across exercise regularity, diet management, weight monitoring, temperature and blood pressure monitoring. Anyone using Assignio will be able to manage their own health and the health of their families and will be able to store data and easily share this with doctors, hospitals and pharmacies.

There are four key categories of services within Assignio covering:

  • Prevention
  • Fitness and wellness
  • Patient service
  • eMedication (to help with a patient’s previous medication history)

There is a long line of applications being developed for the HealthVault platform. Data can be entered manually into the platform, through the applications or automatically from a range of compatible devices, such as weight scales, blood pressure monitors and pedometers. The most important aspect of this service is that individuals are in complete control of their own health management and can decide who has access to what information.
