Get Real Health has been chosen by Microsoft as a destination for HealthVault users who will be moving their existing data after the pending retirement of HealthVault, announced on April 5. As personal health experts who have worked with the HealthVault platform since before it was publicly launched, Get Real Health was the logical choice to provide a secure future for all of the information currently gathered in HealthVault.
“This is like getting back to our roots—to the heart of what we do,” says CEO and president, Robin Wiener. “Connecting a client to HealthVault was how we first developed a passion for connected health and was the impetus for our shift away from professional services to creating patient engagement tools.”
By simply clicking on three buttons, HealthVault account holders will have data migrated to Get Real Health’s Lydia platform boasting enhanced features and usability. Some of the advanced features that HealthVault users will see in Lydia include:
- Apple and Android native apps
- A brand new sleek user experience
- Connection to a growing number of health devices
- The ability to upload health data from any doctor or hospital
- Securely share all health data for your entire family
- Access simply through Touch ID and (upcoming) Face ID
- Continuity of using HealthVault credentials for Lydia login
“We have come a long way since those early HealthVault days,” explains Wiener. “We are excited to let these consumers see their data come to life with our app.”
All data will be available to individuals through the yourlifeyourdata.com website and Lydia Your Life Your Data from the Android and Apple app stores. Your Life Your Data is the mantra driving Lydia users to be able to interact with their personal health data in more dynamic ways. Tracking chronic disease, exercise, diet and health metrics will not only be easier but also have broader practical applications.
“We applaud Microsoft for launching HealthVault and launching millions of users on the journey to better health,” says Wiener. “Now we want to give those people even better tools to use that data in more meaningful ways to improve habits and overall wellness.”
