Community Choice Healthcare Network (CCHN), a five hospital, 10 clinic healthcare system located in Central Washington State, announced that it is now live with its updated Community Choice Health Record Bank (CCHRB) using SPINNphr from Ann Arbor, Mich.-based White Pine Systems, LLC (White Pine) and Microsoft HealthVault. White Pine is a leading provider of personal health applications and solutions at the heart of Patient-Centered Connected Health. Microsoft HealthVault is a personal health application platform designed to put consumers in control of their health information.

SPINNphr, White Pine’s flagship offering, is a Personal Health Record built to connect with Microsoft HealthVault. SPINNphr is a privately brand-able, configurable Personal Health Record that can be configured according to each person's unique health/medical concerns, whether those be diabetes, COPD, anticoagulation therapy, pregnancy, fitness, etc. These personalized views are referred to as "Care Units."

SPINNphr also includes a number of unique functions and features that give new value to consumers and caregivers including an automated notification feature that sends a message to family or caregivers any time a member’s emergency medical information is viewed.



This is awesome. It's nice to see a real user friendly PHR (SPINNphr) with Care Unit focus sitting on top of MS HealthVault. HV is not what I would call 'user friendly'. It's a great platform that desperately needs qualified application partners.

CCHN made a wise choice!

It is great to see the Health community utilizing off the shelve PHR like Microsoft HealthVault. Great service at a reduced cost and it already working!
