  1. Hi Chris,
    I just checkd out this application.
    As a practicing physician, I’m really excited about this application and have signed up for a personal account. My plan is to start enrolling my patients with the hope of consolidating their medical data.

    I found however that the application did not have a place for me to enter my past medical history, medication lists etc. I think, for this application to work for my patients, this feature needs to be in place. Perhaps this feature already exists. If this is the case, it needs to be more obvious to the user. I know this is in beta, so I’m willing to wait. My hope is that the Health Vault is a true PHR.
    I’m curious to hear about the experience of others.

  2. Hi Mark,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I haven’t had a chance to try it out yet but will post up my experiences when I do.

    (I too would have thought that PMH and DH would be very important components… maybe they are still rolling out features…)

    Cheers, Chris
