DURHAM, N.C. – Validic, a provider of health care data connectivity platforms, is integrating with Microsoft HealthVault Insights, a research-based project designed to transform patient engagement by generating new insights about patient health.
“Validic provides the scalable infrastructure needed to acquire a broad range of data for millions of patients,” said Drew Schiller, CEO and co-founder of Validic, in a statement. “With a vision for a health care system built around intelligent insights, we are excited for this opportunity with Microsoft to improve care management and delivery in a way that benefits providers and patients.”
Through this integration, Validic will enable HealthVault Insights to connect to as many as 400 clinical and consumer devices—enabling the data from these devices to drive meaningful insights for patients.
Patients will be able to connect their in-home medical devices and wearables to HealthVault Insights, giving providers contextual information into a patient’s lifestyle, activities and health.
Patients will receive trends and correlations that are based on the their electronic health records and analyzed by Microsoft’s machine learning capabilities to improve the management of their chronic condition and general wellness.
Clinicians will be able to remotely view the patient’s adherence and engagement with a provider-defined care program to track the patient’s progress and health data.
“We are working to bring together critical data sources with machine learning to deliver personalized, actionable insights to both patients and clinicians,” said Heather Jordan Cartwright, general manager, Artificial Intelligence and research at Microsoft, in a statement. “This collaboration helps us continue to build a seamless experience for the patient while providing unique insights to the care team.”
