After you take these steps, your current sign-in credential will be used to sign you in to HealthVault UK, and a new sign-in credential will be used to sign you in to HealthVault US.
  1. Make sure you have a credential (such as a Microsoft account, Facebook account, or OpenID) that is different from the one you’re currently using with HealthVault. But DO NOT SIGN IN WITH IT yet.

    If you need to make a new Microsoft account:
    1. In a new tab or window visit http://live.com, click Sign up now, and follow the steps to create an account.
    2. Sign out of the account you just created.
  2. Sign in to https://account.healthvault.com using your current HealthVault sign-in information.
  3. Click Your account at the top of the page.
  4. Click Add or edit sign-in information.

    Please note: Please make a note of the existing credential name shown here, so that you can remove the correct one in step 7. (The credential name shown in HealthVault may not be the same as your credential account user name.)
  5. Click one of the buttons under Add more ways to sign in to this account.
  6. Sign in with the credential you wish to use for HealthVault US.
  7. After the new credential is added, click Remove next to the old credential.

Now, when you sign in at HealthVault using the old credential, it will sign you in to your account at account.healthvault.co.uk (HealthVault UK) and you’ll see the information in that account. When you want to sign in to account.healthvault.com (HealthVault US), use the credential you just added.

If you want to keep using the same credential for both account

You may keep using the same credential for both HealthVault US and HealthVault UK, but we don’t recommend it because it can be confusing to you and because you may see unexpected behavior in apps you use with HealthVault.
