3 Interesting upcoming health events —
I have not been very meticulous about doing regular posts, a lot has happened in last six months or so. I released a book, Enabling Quantified Self with HealthVault; left Microsoft, started my experiments with cocktail making (Libar), and had a tryst with embassies!
All of the above are great topics to post about! What’s your favorite one for me to belabor? Well I guess I’m back from blogging hiatus and hopefully summer will be here soon too :).
Yesterday was the third Seattle Quantified Self Show & Tell.
For those new to the idea, Quantified Self is a forum for users and tool makers to interact and share knowledge, experiences, tips & tricks to enable better self discovery through tracking. The Seattle chapter of this forum is managed by great folks at Habitlabs (Buster & Amelia) and Limeade (David).
Get your creative geek on and be part of the Health and Life Sciences application contest. The ten winning entries get an XBOX 360 console with Kinect for each team participant and a chance to make difference in Healthcare!
In addition to the application ideas on the contest website feel free to use the resources from Health hack-a-thons. Perhaps it will be great to see some mash-ups using data from http://www.data.gov/health.
Drop me a note if you need help connecting your mobile applications with HealthVault or are trying to explore the Health datasets.
Update: If you want to take your project to the next level, RockHealth might have some seed funding for you!
I’ll be presenting a talk called “Programming HealthCare Silos” at Open Source Conference 2010 on July 23rd. I’m really excited about the talk, I feel honored to get an opportunity to present at OSCON. OSCON is a very prestigious venue, with a huge of mindshare in software community and who’s who on the attendee and speaker list.
If you are planning to attend the conference do drop me a note, and perhaps some check-out my talk. I’m also looking for audience for dry-runs of my talk..
Thought this might be an interesting post from my

Happy new year!! I’m summarizing the Best of 2009 on Reviving the Health Revolution blog –
Understanding Health IT Standards
In April I started a series which aims at helping a programmer understand Health IT standards. I aim to develop this series further in 2010 and I’m also working on a compilation of essays on Health IT, you are encouraged to provide feedback here.
The series so far talks about Vocabularies, HealthVault Data Types in context of various Health IT Standards, SNOMED-CT, CCR.
I started the year with posting about WalkMe, and followed in July with a detailed post about data syncing architecture of this application. This simple walking application is now tracking over 2 million steps! If you want to add a live pedometer signature to your outlook e-mail follow this post. Future features and development of this application is primarily driven by user feedback.
HealthVault Applications using ASP.NET MVC and on Windows Azure
In July I did a post showing how one use ASP.NET MVC framework for developing HealthVault applications. The HealthVault .NET SDK is primarily geared towards ASP.NET Webforms.
HealthVault XML APIs
The HealthVault .NET SDK serves majority of HealthVault partners but last year we saw increase in adoption of our XML APIs consuming it through the Java SDK, Python SDK , Ruby Wrapper or the raw XML layers. The series on working with XML layer is a good starting point.
