  • Question

  • Hi All, can someone give me an overview for connecting a user when using a non-web based application? Something like a Vista widget? Thanks,

  • The only way to do this right now would be to build a proxy that accesses a HealthVault record using offline mode, and then implement a secure channel between the desktop application and the proxy. That will work, but the trust bar is higher for apps that use offline mode and therefore users may be less willing to grant access to your application.


    You also need a way for them to grant offline access. This can be done with a small online (web) application, and it's also possible to use the Patient Connection functionality to do this.
