Microsoft pulling the plug on HealthVault personal health record
A decade after its launch, Microsoft has announced it is closing down its HealthVault personal health record (PHR) system, following its move to drop support for other consumer-oriented ranges such as the Microsoft Band and the Microsoft Health Dashboard.
While Microsoft never made HealthVault commercially available in Australia or New Zealand, locals could sign up to the UK site through a VPN. The move follows the failure of several local PHRs including Medibank's $7.5 million Healthbook, which closed down in 2014, and global efforts such as Google Health.
