Webinar: API 101: An introduction to APIs and how they are transforming health IT

Access an interactive discussion on how to break down healthcare interoperability barriers through APIs

API technology has transformed the digital economy and is now poised to do the same in healthcare by solving one of the most critical challenges we face today: interoperability. APIs can help organizations realize the value of data and access information faster than ever. 

The emergence of standard APIs like the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR) is also moving health IT closer to a “plug‑and‑play” approach to interoperability. 

We discuss APIs and how they can break down barriers to interoperability, such as silos of information created by cumbersome, outdated systems, laggard standards adoption, and the time, resources, and money required for integration. 

We cover: 

  • What APIs are and how they work 
  • How APIs can solve interoperability barriers in health IT 
  • The advantages of using APIs compared to traditional integration methods 
  • The potential API technology brings to health IT and how Lyniate customers across the continuum of care are realizing it
