Siemens IT Solutions has launched "Assignio," designed as a health platform for German citizens, powered by Microsoft HealthVault. According to Jens Dommel, Regional HealthVault Lead Germany, Siemens is responsible for the operations and marketing of Assignio, enabling Germans to tap the power of the Cloud for a new approach to their health and wellness.

"Anyone using Assignio will be able to manage their own health and the health of their families and will be able to store data and easily share this with doctors, hospitals and pharmacies."

Assignio is focused on no less than 4 categories of services. In this regard, users leveraging the platform will be able to do prevention of illnesses, but also deal with fitness and wellness.

Still, Assignio isn't offered to patients, but also to health professionals, with such services as patient service and eMedication.

The most important aspect of this service is that individuals are in complete control of their own health management and can decide who has access to what information," Dommel added.
