  • Basic Demographic Information. This includes gender, birth year, and postal code.

  • Personal Demographic Information. This includes name, birth date, and blood type.

Health information is also stored by item type on the Health information tab.

To view the information in a health record, follow these steps. 

  1. From the drop-down arrow next to the current account name, select the record.

  2. Click Health information, and then select the category that you want.

How to view information details

Any HealthVault customer who has sharing access for a health record can view the details of an information item unless the custodian marked the item as Personal. To view the details for an item, follow these steps:

  1. On the Health information page, select the category that you want.

  2. Click to select the check box for the item that you want, and then click Details.

  3. The details will be displayed under the selected item.

    Details view contains all the data that is stored for the selected information item in the health record. In this view, you can take the following actions:

    • Print the item.

    • Edit the item.

    • Mark the information as personal.

    • View the history for the item.

    From the top of the window, you can also take the following actions:

    • Delete the item.

    • Export the item.

    • See sharing.

    • Change the date range.

    For example, you can save the data to a computer or disk as a .csv (comma-separated values) file. Then, you can open the file in a database, spreadsheet, or text-editing program that accepts the .csv format.

    The access and permissions for each user type are as follows:

    • A user who has View and modify or Custodian access can edit and delete the item.

    • A user who has Custodian access can view the history and sharing status of each item and can mark the item as Personal to prevent noncustodian users from seeing the item when the record is shared. To confirm the source of an item, a customer can view the signature for the item if the creator digitally signed it.

Important When you delete an information item, you remove it from active status in the health record. All programs and noncustodian users cannot view the item. However, anyone who has Custodian access can still view the deleted item on the History of Changes tab in the record.
