Breaking down interoperability barriers is possible through APIs
Succeeding in the new era of value-based care depends on the secure, timely exchange of data. Yet despite recent advances, interoperability remains one of the biggest challenges in health IT.
Application programming interfaces (API) technology has huge potential to improve health data exchange. APIs can enable data integration between different EHRs much faster than traditional methods of integration, allowing health IT innovators to develop, adopt, and leverage solutions more easily.
To help you get up to speed with APIs and how you can use them in your organization, download this white paper, API 101: An introduction to APIs and how they are transforming health IT. In it, we share:
- What APIs are and how they work
- How APIs can overcome interoperability barriers in health IT
- The advantages of using APIs compared to traditional integration methods
- The potential API technology brings to health IT
