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!
