Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minn.) is introducing an online application that will enable patients to securely store medical information and receive real-time individualized health recommendations.

Powered by Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft HealthVault, Mayo Clinic Health Manager expands the capabilities of traditional personal health records by using patients’ health information to generate customized recommendations that can help them to better manage their health and the health of their families, says the company. Users can store copies of health records; upload information from home health devices such as blood glucose monitors and digital scales; and share information with caregivers.

According to Microsoft, the health guidance given to patients is developed, reviewed and approved by a team of experts at Mayo Clinic, and will be updated regularly to reflect best practices in health care.
