New Year 2013: Take five minutes to make your family safer

While it’s certainly cliché, this really is a great time of the year to “reset” a few things and make sure that each new year is just a little better than the last. Most of us have had a little time off to share food, games and conversations with family and friends — I’ve had…

Dynamics CRM + HealthVault … Holy crap, it’s population management!

There are a million incredible ways that HealthVault can help improve healthcare, and I love to talk about each and every one of them. But if you really step back and look at where we’re moving the needle today, one uber-scenario is clearly dominant: we enable population management. I use the term broadly — covering…

A few of the great folks behind HealthVault!

Greetings from 35,000 feet en route to sort-of-snowy Toronto — up early this morning to get back in the saddle after a fantastic break for Thanksgiving in the US. My daughter was home for the first time after leaving for her freshman year at Pomona, and while we all had a bit of the here-comes-winter…

Looking for a great coder to help a great cause

Just about a year ago we launched the HealthVault emergency prep feature. It’s a great and simple way to collect your family’s information in one place, keep it up to date using automated connections, and make it available in an emergency situation. It’s those last to points that really make the solution transformational. With HealthVault,…

ONC testimony on identity proofing; maybe another time!

Today the ONC Privacy and Security Tiger Team was supposed to be having a hearing on consumer identity proofing for health. Needless to say the weather put a crimp in that plan, even though it was by teleconference. Since I had my content actually prepared this time, I figured I’d post here for those that…

Ready for Sandy? HealthVault can help.

My daughter and I are big fans of apocalypse entertainment. In particular, I’m drawn to stories of how “regular” people have to overcome the loss of those little, implicit dependencies we rarely think about — what happens when your glasses break, or you run out of bipolar meds? Fun when it’s on the big screen, but…

Windows 8 is HUGE for health … and almost here!

HealthVault is all about making health information available everywhere — something I had a great time reinforcing a couple of weeks ago at Health 2.0 when I built, compiled and ran a HealthVault iPhone app live on stage in just two minutes. My favorite tweet was from Dr. Wei: Great stuff. But the world keeps…

Another year, another Health 2.0 Shindig

Sitting here on Amtrak train 14 — the Coast Starlight that runs from Los Angeles up to Seattle (I jumped on in Portland for a quick four hour ride home). It’s a wonderful trip, so completely different than the ridiculous cattle call that is travelling by air. Just puts me in a good mood (all…
