The odds of beating cancer for pediatric patients are good, but these strong, young survivors often have life-long healthcare concerns that must be monitored and addressed. After watching patients attempt to cope with this challenge, Pediatric Endocrinologists and other Healthcare professionals thought there ought to be a way they could offer their patients easy, secure access to all the information they would need to get optimal care for the remainder of their lives. HIMformatics, a software development company, was able to use a platform created by DevExpress, based on Microsoft® development technologies, to make this far-sighted medical dream a reality—complete with a user-friendly, secure web-portal that can be used to both store and share a patient's complete medical history. This makes the ongoing fight for a long, healthy life easier for patients, families, and providers.

Dr. Stephen Hawking has ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and has relied on assistive technology. Researchers from Intel Labs collaborated with Hawking on a new solution called ACAT (Assistive Context Aware Toolkit) that makes it easier for him to communicate, and navigate the computer and the Internet. ACAT uses various Microsoft open development tools, including Azure, C# and .NET 4.5, and the project was recently open sourced on GitHub so that developers and those with disabilities could customize it to their needs.
