Emergency Preparedness


HealthVault has introduced a number of features centered around emergency preparedness scenarios.

There is an alternate sign-up flow for HealthVault that walks users through entering the data required to complete an emergency profile. This sign-up flow can be accessed through a new eprep=true parameter on the Shell CREATEACCOUNT redirect target. The sign-up flow can be co-branded by referring emergency preparedness sites.

There is a new 'Emergency Profile' section in the HealthVault. The data in a user's emergency profile consists of the following data types:

  • Allergies

  • Conditions

  • Contacts

  • Medications (Current, based on discontinued-date)

  • Medical Devices

A user’s emergency profile can be accessed be applications by requesting those data types through the standard Platform and SDK methods.
