Default Building Mobile Health Apps On WP7

"There's a huge groundswell of investment and activity around 'mobile health' --- technologies like Windows Phone 7 are helping people become safer, healthier, active and independent...We are super-excited to announce that we've just enabled Microsoft HealthVault, an online service that helps consumers manage, store and share their health information, for mobile development--- so you can be part of the mHealth Revolution."

With the Baby-Boomer generation nearing retirement, there's plenty of demand for tools to manage health and fitness. So it's no surprise that Microsoft is eager to have developers leverage on the capabilities of WP7 to enter that market. If you think that's where you want to apply your coding chops, check out this blog post for details - along with HealthVault, MS is providing guidance on how to write applications that access the info stored in the service. Now there's obviously going to be some privacy concerns here, but hey, if you haven't got your health, what have you got?
