HealthVault Connection Center
Connection Center is a utility you can use to add data to records in your HealthVault account from health and fitness devices such as heart rate monitors, blood pressure monitors, peak flow meters, and glucometers. When you use Connection Center, data from your compatible devices is uploaded to HealthVault through your computer.
And now, HealthVault Connection Center allows you to upload medical images, such as X-rays, MRIs, ultrasounds, and more.
Connection Center and devices
HealthVault Connection Center works with health and fitness devices that can be connected to your computer, such as:
- Blood pressure monitors
- Heart-rate monitors (such as the kind you wear on your wrist when exercising)
- Respiratory measurement devices (spirometers, also known as "peak flow meters")
- Blood glucose monitors

Some of these devices connect directly to your computer through the USB or serial port; others communicate with the computer using an infrared or other wireless receiver.

Connection Center and medical images
HealthVault Connection Center allows you to upload medical images to HealthVault. By uploading your medical images to your account in HealthVault and storing them there, you can keep them organized and retrieve them whenever you need them.
When you have medical images stored in HealthVault — either images that you’ve uploaded or images that have been added with your permission by a HealthVault-connected provider — you can use Connection Center to download the images to view them and burn them to CDs or DVDs.
Once your images are burned to disc, you can show them to your healthcare providers. This can be useful if you’re following up with different specialists about an injury or illness.
