Microsoft HealthVault on Windows Phone 7

Microsoft HealthVault Windows Phone 7 Library

The HealthVault team has made available Windows Phone 7 library that would enable developers to write Windows Phone 7 applications that connect directly to the HealthVault service allowing interaction with a user’s personally controlled health record.

Microsoft HealthVault is a trusted place for people to organize, store, and share health information online. The service helps you monitor chronic conditions a little more easily.

The mobile support is built upon a capability called SODA. The developer registers an master application using the Application Configuration Center and marks that application as a SODA application. This enables the mobile application to create child applications using this master application. To provide the most flexibility and the least resource consumption, any operations that talk to the HealthVault service are asynchronous.

The process of the mobile application getting set up to use the HealthVault service is known as provisioning, and consists of the following steps:

  1. Obtaining child application information
  2. Creating and authorizing the application
  3. Connecting and obtaining user information

Health Guard

The folks at Akvelon have released an awesome Health Guard on the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace already. The application enables people to access their HealthVault account data on the go and allows users to personally add new measurements and health information.
