Microsoft is dropping its HealthVault patient records-management service, the company notified customers via email today, April 5. The service will be shut down on November 20 and any data residing in the service will be deleted after that date.

HealthVault was one of the last pieces left of Microsoft's original foray into first-part health services products. Recently, Microsoft officials said they were ending support for the Microsoft Health Dashboard applications and services as of May 31. Early last year, Microsoft dropped its HealthVault Insights application.

HealthVault is a service for storing individuals' health and medical records and information so they can be shared with health professionals. Microsoft launched a beta of HealthVault in 2007 and went live with the service in 2009. Microsoft was still updating its HealthVault documentation on the docs.microsoft.com site as of December 2018.

Here's the text of the email Microsoft is sending to HealthVault customers:

We are reaching out to you because you are a registered user of the HealthVault service. We are providing you this notice to ensure you are aware of an important development:
