Microsoft's HealthVault service, which was built to help manage patient records, will shut down on November 20. In an email to users, first reported by ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, Microsoft added that any data left on the service will be deleted as of the shutdown date.
"Data you have in your HealthVault account will be deleted effective November 20, 2019," Microsoft said in an email to users. "If you wish to keep the data in your account, you need to take action now to transfer that data from your HealthVault account."
Any apps that are dependent on HealthVault for data will also stop working on November 20, Microsoft said in the email. "Please take appropriate action to move your data or information you may have stored in your HealthVault account."
Those who want to transfer their data do another health record service are urged to reach out to Get Real Health or FollowMyHealth, according to ZDNet.
HealthVault was initially launched in 2009 after two years in beta testing. The service allows patients to securely share their records with healthcare professionals. The service sported integrations with various apps over the years, including MSN Health & Fitness and Fitbit, though both services dropped support for HealthVault in recent years.
