Walgreens launches Web-based prescription portal

Deerfield, Ill. Walgreens plans to launch a Web-based portal that will allow patients to gather, store and share health histories.

By partnering with Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft, Walgreens’ HealthVault platform, available on Walgreens.com, will enable shoppers to review prescription data; store copies of their health records obtained from other sources such as health providers, insurance plans or employers; upload information from health and fitness devices; and share information with health-care providers and trainers. HealthVault will also allow parents to track medical histories of their children and that of older relatives.

The solution will debut later this year.
