As I posted earlier last month, the HealthVault Solutions meeting is coming up next month...Microsoft is dolling out grant money for development of programs to work with the HealthVault...upping the amount to 4.5 million...thus far there are over 200 proposals on the table for the grants...good time to look into developing an application to interact and integrate with the HealthVault....BD
The Redmond, Wash.-based company will now offer $4.5 million in funding for the program, up from the $3 million it originally promised when it began soliciting grant proposals last February. The increase is the result of strong interest in the program, company executives say. Microsoft received almost 200 proposals for the grants, which will be distributed in increments of up to $500,000 each.
The proposals included a range of online systems designed to address health issues, such as childhood obesity, medication reconciliation, mobile health gathering and dissemination, and diabetes management. The company will announce the winners at its HealthVault Solutions Conference, June 9-10 in Bellevue, Wash.
