Complicated Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems have created the problems in system easy implementation and interoperability for a Web-enabled Healthcare Solution, which is normally provided by an independent healthcare giver with limited IT knowledge and interests. An EMR system with well-designed and user-friendly interface, such as Microsoft HealthVault System, as the back end platform of a Web-enabled healthcare application will be an approach to deal with these problems. In this paper, through analyzing the patient oriented Web-enabled healthcare service application as the new trend to delivery healthcare from hospital/clinic-centric to patient-centric, the current e-healthcare applications, and the main backend EMR systems, we present a novel web-enabled healthcare solution based on Microsoft HealthVault EMR system to meet customers' needs. A sample system is given to show how this model can be used.
