drchrono Inc. Releases API for Developers to Enter the Highly Regulated Healthcare Industry
Dec 11 13
drchrono Inc. released its API that will allow thousands of developers to build their own healthcare applications on top of the drchrono platform. Of all the APIs listed on ProgrammableWeb only 1.3% are associated with the medical services sector. Innovators have avoided developing applications for the healthcare industry due to high regulations and the difficulty accessing APIs from health institutions. But drchrono is looking to overhaul such difficulties by making developers requests to the API as easy as a sign up and one week review process. Similar to the application store for the iPhone and the Facebook's API release that created new opportunities for entrepreneurs to develop applications, drchrono hopes to spark a new wave for thousands of developers to find opportunities in the rapidly evolving healthcare space and launch new companies in the process. The current procedure for accessing a health institution's API involves working with the organization's business development team, a process that could take months to years to complete. Since each institution utilizes its own API, it can be a very time consuming process for companies to access them. By leveraging drchrono, these organizations can have access to their patients' information for application construction within a week. Developers are not the only ones that can use the API, other users include: DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) companies that can provide MRI, ultrasound imaging and x-rays to physicians as soon as the radiology department finishes reviewing them. This dramatically reduces the turn-around time for patient results. Medical billing companies that would like to develop mobile applications for physicians to use on top of drchrono. Physicians that would like to add their own custom features on top of the platform to work with the workflows of their own office.
