Create Connectivity with the Healthvault Users

The healthvault can provide a huge number of connecting options for the integration purposes. The integration approaches and their key characteristics can be described in the following ways:

Authorization Based Record: This kind of record may allow both the writing and reading records of the users. In case the user is not online, the applications can be accessed from the healthvault user's records. This is a record authorization process for providing the flexibility. The application of the connection can both read and write the data easily. This record can be divided into the following options:

  • Online And Offline Access: When the user is logged into the application, the online access can easily be applied. At first, the users can register themselves in the healthvault platform and then can sign in the vault starting from the second usages. After logging in successfully, the authentication token can be used for the application. With the offline access, the users should authorize themselves with the application. For example, the offline access can help in pushing the EHR applications for updating the records after any encounter.
  • Optional And Mandatory Rules: There are various rules that are mandatory and some rules are optional. During the authorization process, the users can use the applications with the mandatory rules. The optional rules signify that the application can easily work without the access.

DOPU: This is a simple method for sending data to the healthvault users. The DOPU is the acronymic form of Drop Off Pick Up. This process requires the in-person encounter. The Microsoft healthvault development helps in connecting patients by establishing access to the healthvault records. The process sends and receives the data without any difficulty. If any new data can be identified in the system, the application can easily record them. Though DOPU cannot read the data from the records, it helps to push the data wherever required. The DOPU package can be generated by the question and the answer provided by the users. The pickup code can therefore be generated with all the pickup information available in the system. The user can also provide their email address optionally for further communication.


Direct Message: For the direct messaging protocol, the connection option of the healthvault can be used. This function can also allow the users for sending the messages and the attachments to the users. The direct messaging can help in sending the attachments of the health providers.

  • Web Based Authorization: Though not mandatory, the user can easily visit the authorized website of the healthvault. When the consumer visits the website, he gets automatically redirected to the healthvault platform. By applying the online authorization rules, the health records can easily be accessed through the Healthvault.
  • Patient Connect: The "patient connect" is an easy method where user friendly websites are absent. The connection can be established during the exchange of in-person. The organization may ask the user to answer the secret question for authorizing the applications. The exchanges can also take place during the pre-registration process. The application can be generated through the Connect Request with the secret questions and the answers.

So, the healthvault can provide various packages that can be applied for the convenience of the users. The direct messages can also be exchanged between the users. The applications may also be useful for sending the clinical documents of the users and the useful attachments can also be used. If there are registered users in the platform, they can easily sign in with their existing accounts and can use the health records wisely.
