Windows Phone 7 Health and Life Sciences App Contest

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!
