This article describes how to add health information to a Microsoft HealthVault Record.

More Information

Health information is the data that is stored in HealthVault. Health information is stored on the Health information page for each record and is categorized by information type. Information types are defined by HealthVault and the other programs that add and use the data. Specific items or data, such as a reading or a measurement, are listed individually under each information type.

Customers can add health information by using one of the following methods:

  • Manually, by using the View and modify access to a record.

  • From health and fitness devices through a HealthVault program, such as the HealthVault Connection Center.

  • From programs that are downloaded from Web sites.

  • From third parties, such as pharmacists.

  • By downloading a file.
