HealthVault has introduced a number of features centered around emergency preparedness scenarios.
Emergency prep signup flow
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. See shell redirect interface .
There is a new 'Emergency Profile' section on the HealthVault website. The data in a user's emergency profile consists of the following data types:
- 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.
