Free Stuff From Grover Park Consulting

Everybody likes Free Stuff.

I have just published one more free application on my website, GPCData Downloads.

This one is an Access Web App (AWA). It's a demo version of the same AWA I use myself.

I track:
  • A1C (Quarterly)
  • Blood Glucose (daily)
  • Blood Pressure (daily)
  • Pulse (daily)
  • Weight (daily)
You can use these same categories, or add your own.

I also track:
  • Daily Exercise by type and location
  • Duration of activities
  • Mileage, when appropriate
In addition, it includes tracking of
  • Medications
  • Medications Taken
The other function included is tracking of:
  • Calories consumed
  • Carbohydrates consumed
I have added a basic "dashboard" function to the basic testing to show max and min values for tests along with average for some, where appropriate. These are color-coded.

Please feel free to download and deploy this AWA to your own Office 365 Site. You can obtain an O365 site for as little as $5.00/month.


Because the data is stored in a SQL Azure database, you can link to it for reporting from Microsoft PowerBI. Create a nice-looking dashboard to share with your own medical team from their browser!

Microsoft MVP Summit 2016 -- The Future is Brighter Than Ever

At the annual Microsoft MVP Summit in Redmond, getting recharged by the A-Team. We're under NDA for all content; however, it's no secret that the general atmosphere, mood and especially the outlook for our favorite lovable little Database Application are so different from what we're used to that I can't help smiling all the way through the sessions.

Access is not just alive; it's growing again.
