Analyze the free medical record dataset from Microsoft Azure DataMarket and Practice Fusion to answer the biggest healthcare questions in the US today. Use the de-identified data however you’d like: visualize healthcare trends, find adverse drug reactions, chart chronic disease, mashup the results with other Azure data or build an app. Basically, pick a pressing healthcare question and answer it using the tools provided by Microsoft and Practice Fusion.

We’re looking for the wow factor. Focus on data visualization to create healthcare studies and powerful apps built around the free dataset.
