Date:2/24/2008

Microsoft also takes steps to facilitate broad interoperability for developers and solution providers using Microsoft HealthVault to drive

industry development in health.

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Microsoft Corp. today bolstered its commitment to improving people's health through software innovation with the announcement of the Microsoft HealthVault Be Well Fund and request for proposals. The $3 million initiative is designed to empower providers with targeted funding to stimulate the research and development of online tools that improve health. The announcement was made at the health IT industry's largest conference, Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2008 Annual Conference & Exhibition. Microsoft and its healthcare industry partners will be showcasing early examples of provider- patient scenarios on the Microsoft HealthVault platform at HIMSS 2008, illustrating how the ability to maintain and persistently access a complete record of health information can lead to improved patient-provider interactions that help to facilitate better health outcomes.

"Whether you are a healthcare provider or consumer, the inability to access information where and when it's needed is a huge source of frustration and can result in incomplete care and wellness decisions," said Peter Neupert, corporate vice president, Health Solutions Group, Microsoft. "As consumers begin to demand better health solutions, and providers look to better engage with their patients, the industry can benefit from a renewed push for innovative development that will bring to life yet-to-be-imagined Web applications that help people live longer, healthier lives."

The fund is aimed at stimulating solution development across a broad range of health disciplines
