CVS Caremark and Microsoft team up to help people manage their health

July 1, 2008

CVS Caremark and Microsoft are joining forces to help consumers manage their health.

CVS Caremark and Microsoft Corp. announced plans to collaborate to offer consumer healthcare solutions to help people manage their health and wellness and control their health information using Microsoft HealthVault. Through this collaboration, consumers will be able to download a comprehensive list of prescriptions filled at CVS/pharmacy or through CVS Caremark by mail as well as save copies of their health records, including laboratory tests, from visits to MinuteClinic, the retail-based health clinic subsidiary of CVS Caremark, into their individual HealthVault record. It will also be possible to upload personal health data, such as blood pressure or glucometer readings, from HealthVault into CVS Caremark applications for use by pharmacists or nurse practitioners in providing care. These services are expected to be available to consumers beginning this fall.
