A new service from electronic prescribing network operator Surescripts will enable consumers using the Microsoft HealthVault personal health records software to download records of their dispensed medications from community pharmacies that use the Surescripts network.

Under the Medication History for Personal Health Records service from Surescripts, a consumer can log into their HealthVault account from Web sites of participating pharmacies and request that their medication history be downloaded to their account. Upon completion of an identity verification process, a consumer's medication history will automatically be updated anytime new prescriptions are dispensed.

Alexandria, Va.-based Surescripts earlier this year announced a similar service with Google Health. More information is available at surescripts.com.
