Project HealthDesign Common Platform Now Available for Developers and Users. The Project HealthDesign Common Platform - a set of software components that provide common, shared functions to a variety of personal health applications (PHAs) - is now available for use by developers and others interested in learning more about the platform. The Common Platform centralizes services for storing information such as observations of daily living (ODLs) and medication lists, as well as for providing authentication, registry, and access-control functions. First-round Project HealthDesign grantees developed applications on the Common Platform, demonstrating the feasibility of interoperability across diverse PHAs.

Through an open source agreement, developers and other users now have secure access to the Project HealthDesign Common Platform Development Environment (PHD-CDE), which is hosted and supported on a server by Sujansky & Associates, the project's technical consultant. -Learn more at PDH-CDE
