Steve Aylward, General Manager for Health and Life Sciences at Microsoft® discusses with EHRtv™ the future of Microsoft. Microsoft understands that the healthcare industry needs to make drastic improvements in sharing electronic medical records (EMR) across environments. Therefore, Microsoft believes that they are able to contribute. Allscripts™ has worked with Microsoft since its inception and has developed the majority of its solutions using Microsoft products. Allscripts has also endorsed Windows Mobile® and hopes to provide Allscripts Remote™ for Windows Mobile in the near future. Microsoft has also produced its personal health record (PHR) solution, HealthVault™, which was showcased at the Allscripts Client Experience (ACE) 09. HealthVault is free to everyone in the U.S. and hopes to succeed by making the personal health record (PHR) system worldwide. Current Microsoft initiatives include healthcare centric search or Bing.com, cloud computing, and healthcare.
