Microsoft and Health 2.0 team up to review the history of Microsoft and the goals and evaluation criteria for this developer challenge.
Roll up your sleeves and learn about the functionality, complexity, and scope of Microsoft’s Windows 8 & Healthvault APIs.
Sean Maloney, product manager at Microsoft, gives a quick teaser of the Microsoft HealthVault & Windows 8 API Workshop.
In 2010, with the increased complexity of moving data, technological solutions linking data in different systems while tackling the thorny issues of privacy, identity, and permissions became more important.
This panel displayed some of those leading solutions and the many unplatforms it needs to connect with, including a demonstration of the 2010 Health 2.0 Accelerator Apps Network, which combineed 7 different technologies to solve the problems of care coordination in and outside of the hospital or doctor’s office. (UnPlatforms comprise the next frontier in moving data between web/mobile/ubiquitous internet connected devices).

Neil runs Heathvault’s business in Europe, particularly with the announcement that Healthvault will be working with Siemens in Germany. In the US, Microsoft’s team has been making Healthvault a platform for data from both health systems and medical devices, as well as creating the MyhealthInfo application layer—which debuted at Health 2.0 in October 2009.
With Google’s exit stage left, Microsoft may have felt like last man standing in the PHR business. Vaibhav Bhandari shows us how the VA’s Blue Button data allows a user to download and import their data into Microsoft HealthVault, enabling the user to view, control and take recommended actions based on their personal health record.
