Heart360 Gives All Around Perspective to Heart Health

November 5, 2008 - With the American Heart Association’s innovative new cardiovascular wellness center
(www.heart360.org) visitors can enter their blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose numbers, log physical activities, record their weight, and keep a diary of the medications they are taking or used to take.

The entries are stored online in a secure, password-protected system to be charted, compared and updated to help set goals and track progress in reducing heart disease risk factors. A variety of links to relevant American Heart Association content are also available on the site.

“Statistics show millions of people are turning to the Internet for health information,” said Tim Gardner, M.D., president of the American Heart Association and medical director of the Center for Heart and Vascular Health at the Christiana Care Health System in Delaware. “With Heart360, patients and their families can easily track their risk factors and get quick access to the most credible source of online heart and stroke information.”

Powered by Microsoft HealthVault, Heart360 replaces and expands on the American Heart Association's former Blood Pressure Management Center. The new site offers the ability to track a broader range of heart disease risk factors, while providing more guidance and information.

In 2007, Microsoft launched HealthVault, a personal health platform that allows consumers to gather, store and share health information online. HealthVault enables the exchange of data among different health applications, such as the American Heart Association's Heart360.

New users can visit www.Heart360.org to set up a Microsoft HealthVault account. Previous users of the American Heart Association's Blood Pressure Management Center can log in normally and their data will automatically transfer to Heart360.
