This follows closely the release of HealthVault Search of last week.

Expect to see a lot of buzz around this in the next following days as the search engines start picking this up.

    Hi Roberto,

    I’m really excited about this new offering. Initially after reading the announcement, I thought HealthVault was a PHR. However, after spending some time with the SDK and other materials, its clear that HealthVault is really a back-end service to enable applications to manage personal health data in a secure manner with the patient controlling the access. I have spent some time blogging my initial impressions and plan to play around with some of the SDK samples.
