SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DrChrono Inc., the company enabling the medical practice of the future, today announced new features and functionality to its free Application Programming Interface (API) allowing customers and developers to create applications that enhance the DrChrono platform as well as create third-party healthcare industry applications. Thousands of developers are registered on the DrChrono platform leveraging its API such as customers like Calyx Health who have development teams along with tech startups like Calibrater Health.
“We have made great strides over the years with our API and want developers to be able to build on a healthcare platform without an access setup fee. Developers can easily access our API and build on top of DrChrono to create unique applications that can significantly improve the user experience for medical professionals, practices and patients in healthcare,” said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and Co-Founder of DrChrono. “DrChrono’s API support team also works closely with our developer community to bring them the highest level of service that they need to build their apps.”
California-based clinic Calyx Health in Alameda is exclusively for Medicare seniors and has its own developer team. “We evaluated a lot of EHRs and chose DrChrono because of its ease of use, impressive API capabilities, and devotion to the developer experience. Their engineering team worked hard to provide the features we needed to integrate our own technology, including an easy to use app geared towards Medicare seniors, into the EHR,” said Kevin Matulef, Chief Technology Officer of Calyx Health. “Using the new clinical notes feature, we can now merge patient data directly into the same spot where the physician is taking notes. This saves our providers from toggling back and forth between screens, and allows them to produce more accurate and comprehensive documentation with much less work.”
“Integrating with the DrChrono APIs has been a breeze,” said Tim Dybvig, CEO of Calibrater Health, a new developer partner offering text-based patient engagement solutions. “The documentation is great and their team is super responsive - we're already in direct contact with the developer API team should we need change requests in the future. This was our quickest partnership launch to date and we're very happy to be working with DrChrono.”
On average, DrChrono’s API interacts 32 million times per month with its partners’ application or a customer's in-house application. An API call is a two-way exchange when the application requests or pushes data to the DrChrono platform, for example, when one appointment is created or one patient chart is updated. With the help of the DrChrono’s API developers and the apps they created, an impressive number of API calls are recorded on DrChrono’s platform.
How the Healthcare API Works:
DrChrono's free API allows all types of developers to easily build software to interface with the platform. Developers can create new ways to interact with medical professionals, patients, and stakeholders in the healthcare industry. Developers can use the API and SDK with simple setup and powerful functionality to create unique third-party applications that leverage DrChrono’s health data, EHR, practice management and medical billing platform. It boasts a number of endpoints and developers can use any HTTP client in any programming language to build their app. DrChrono also provides a devoted API support team to help developers grow and improve their app. To get started, visit www.drchrono.com/api and click "Start Building."
