Armonk, N.Y.-based IBM is collaborating with Google (Mountain View, Calif.) and the Continua Health Alliance (Beaverton, Ore.) on new software that will enable personal medical devices used for patient monitoring, screening and routine evaluation to automatically stream data results into a patient’s personal health record (PHR).

According to the companies, this extends the value of PHRs to consumers and also helps to ensure that such records are current and accurate at all times. Once stored in a PHR, the data can also be shared with physicians and other members of the extended care network at a user’s discretion.

IBM developed the software based on guidelines from Continua Health Alliance, a globally recognized organization dedicated to enabling interoperable personal healthcare products and solutions.
