MSM e-HealthyStrides Terms and Conditions of Use
What is MSM e-HealthyStrides?
MSM e-HealthyStrides (e-HealthyStrides) is a confidential and secure, internet-based
service that allows users to obtain access to and organize their own health information.
The MSM e-HealthyStrides provides you with useful information about opportunities
for improving the quality of your medical care that you can share with your doctor
and health coach. The information stored by patients in their accounts is not intended
to be used by physicians or health coaches for diagnosis or treatment related decisions.
In addition to storing data on Microsoft Healthvault platform, it also stores data
on a highly secured local data repository. The data is downloaded using MSM e-HealthyStrides
What Information is contained in MSM e-HealthyStrides?
The MSM e-HealthyStrides will contain only the information about your health that
you choose to enter. Keeping your information up-to-date makes the e-HealthyStrides
a more valuable tool for you.
How may the Health Information contained within MSM e-HealthyStrides be used by Morehouse?
The e-HealthyStrides serves as both a repository of your health information as well
as a tool to inform you about opportunities to improve your health. As new data
is entered, it is scanned by the system in order to identify ways in which your
diabetes care may be improved.
In-built algorithm matches information in the e-HealthyStrides about your health
and treatment against a set of generally accepted clinical "best practices"
derived from the medical literature. Alert messages are then delivered to you in
order to provide you with information you can discuss with your doctor. We encourage
you to speak with your doctor about the Alerts, so you and your doctor can determine
whether any change in your medical care is warranted.
You should never rely on an Alert as the sole basis for changing your medical treatment.
Alerts are for informational purposes only and do not constitute, and are not intended
as a substitute for, medical advice. Certain Alerts may not be appropriate for your
particular medical condition because the messages are based exclusively on information
supplied by you in your e-HealthyStrides, which information may be incomplete. As
always, if you think you have a medical emergency, you should immediately call your
doctor or call 911.diately call your doctor or call 911.
