Microsoft HealthVault ends its Windows Phone support
Microsoft has sent out emails to Windows Phone members who use the HealthVault app, informing them that the company will be ending support for the app "due to compatibility problems".
Windows Central readers sent over the email that Microsoft pushed out informing them of this decision:
Microsoft HealthVault is a service that allows people to store their health and medicial information online. It launched in 2007 and Microsoft released the Windows Phone app in 2011.
Thanks to everyone for the tips!

He's cutting because he's refocusing on where MS has strength and a way forward. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
Didn't some third part apps also end because they had this kind of problems. Please tell me why this isn't a bad signal.
Not to speak about third part apps leaving and saying use the website...
I honestly never understood why Health and HealthVault were 2 different platforms instead of one. It's confusing and it introduces extra layers of complexity for us users. I understand that, unlike the Health app, the vault is for sharing and storage of PHI, but still, if AAPL could build this all into a single platform, I see zero reason why MSFT should have 2. If it is supposed to survive, it needs to be one platform and it needs to be open with connectivity to all other services, just like AAPL Health.
As a Dr. I totally understand that there is a big baggage of HIPAA headaches coming along with it, but that's a trade off in the day and age we all unfortunately have to put up with.
