CLASSless!

22 / Dec / 2011    Anand Gaddum

Last month, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) dropped its efforts to implement the CLASS Act. The CLASS program is a national, voluntary insurance program that was supposed to be available after October 2012 to help pay for services and supports that help citizens maintain independence in the community.

Developing Rich Internet Applications the Right Way

A guide to ensuring quality and consistency when developing rich applications.

22 / Dec / 2011    Peter Denton

Most of the projects I work on involve developing a new interface on a website or application that appears cutting-edge to users. It's no surprise, as user demands for rich, state-of-the-art interfaces have skyrocketed and users of consumer and enterprise applications no longer want "what works" but rather want what "is possible".

Microsoft has just release a free SkyDrive App for Windows Phone 7 and iPhone. And iPhone? Late in August Microsoft leaked that they were going to release apps that would enable Windows, Apple (Mac or iPhone) or Android laptops, desktops, tablets, and phones to access their online documents from SkyDrive.

Metro UI and Windows 8!!

22 / Dec / 2011    Piyush Prakash

I spent couple of hours this week trying to understand the Metro UI. While Microsoft is definitely betting big time on Metro UI, with it being incorporated in Windows Phone 7, Zune and most recently in Windows 8, there doesn't seem to be much information available on what it is, how a developer can benefit from it, and what set of tools, technologies and best practices are available for a developer to use it in real-life applications.

Washington State limits emergency department visits for Medicaid patients

25 / Nov / 2011    Anand Gaddum

WA State plans to limit ED visits for Medicaid patients for non-emergencies. The core of the debate right now is to define what is an emergency and what is not and for what type of patients. With the new plan, they can go to the ED only 3 times per year for non-emergencies and they would be notified about it.

Year One - Windows Phone Marketplace

25 / Nov / 2011    Ambuj Parihar

There is a lot of talk about the Android and Apple (iOS) Apps stores and the tons of apps available on them. But what's happening to the Windows Phone Marketplace after one year? (BTW, in the interest of candor I would like to note at the beginning of this article that we are the Microsoft Mobile Partner of the Year and have developed a variety of applications for not only Microsoft but a variety of large publishers as well as developing iOS and Android apps).

Hospital Readmissions & Chronic Condition Management

1 / Nov / 2011    Anand Gaddum

To start, this is the first time we have had a national report that reflects on the effectiveness of care coordination which affects readmissions. To quickly summarize the report, there was little progress in reducing readmission rates over the five-year period 2004 to 2009 and for some conditions, the readmissions rates have actually increased nationwide.
