Microsoft to retire HealthVault Insights app

January 19, 2018

Written by


HealthVault enables businesses — including hospitals, pharmacies, and lab testing companies — to store personal health information and engage with their customers in new ways.


HealthVault is a trusted place for people to gather, store, use, and share their health information.


Microsoft Statement


"We launched HealthVault Insights as a research project last year, with the goal of helping patients generate new insights about their health. Since then, we've learned a lot about how machine learning can be used to increase patient engagement and are now applying that knowledge to other projects.


As part of this progression, we've made the decision to remove HealthVault Insights from the iOS, Android and Windows stores effective later this month.


This change will have no impact on the data users generated in HealthVault Insights, which will continue be accessible via the HealthVault website. Thank you for participating in our project. Please contact our support team if you have any questions."


HealthVault Features
