Microsoft is gearing up to retire the HealthVault Insights app on iOS, Android, and Windows. In the app's place, Microsoft says it will be applying knowledge it gained from the research project to other projects, as it removes the HealthVault Insights app from the iOS, Android, and Windows app stores "later this month" (via MSPU).
In a note at the top of the official HealthVault Insights website, Microsoft says:
We launched HealthVault Insights as a research project last year, with the goal of helping patients generate new insights about their health. Since then, we've learned a lot about how machine learning can be used to increase patient engagement and are now applying that knowledge to other projects. As part of this progression, we've made the decision to remove HealthVault Insights from the iOS, Android and Windows stores effective later this month. This change will have no impact on the data users generated in HealthVault Insights, which will continue be accessible via the HealthVault website. Thank you for participating in our project. Please contact our support team if you have any questions.
Initially launched in early 2017, HealthVault Insights was meant to act as a "research-based project designed to allow partners to generate new insights about patient health, drive adherence to care plans and encourage patient engagement powered by the latest scientific advances in machine learning."
It will be interesting to see how the insight gleaned from this project influence others. For now, the app is still listed on Google Play, the App Store, and the Microsoft Store. Per Microsoft's given timeline, expect each to be retired before the end of January.
