Role of API & Use Cases for Healthcare Website

The novel coronavirus pandemic encouraged healthcare professionals to embrace virtual healthcare solutions. Many physicians saw their telehealth visit volume increase by a factor of 50 to 175.

To build a patient-focused platform, you can integrate with healthcare API solutions. The global healthcare API market size was valued at USD 210.9 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3% from 2020 to 2027.

API stands for application programming interface (API) that passes the request of the developer to the web server and sends the response back to the developer. When it comes to healthcare integrations, providing top-notch security to patient’s data is a must. A versatile healthcare API with HIPAA compliance pays off!

Through high-performance API integrations, you can virtually contact the patients, note down the appointments, collect the consultation charges, send reminders, and provide digital healthcare experiences from anywhere at any time without any disruptions.

In this blog, we have talked about the importance of API, how to integrate API, and the top education APIs as well. Our experience with healthcare professionals and knowledge of API development has enabled us to write a detailed blog about the role of API in healthcare.

Let’s dive right in.

How Does API Work on a Healthcare Website?

APIs are a set of protocols that use the concept of Platform as a Service (PaaS) and allow applications to communicate with each other using a simple set of commands.

The easiest way to understand the working of APIs is to think about a common scenario between a customer, a waiter, and a restaurant. A customer places an order through a waiter. The waiter then takes down the order and conveys it to the cook. After the cook prepares the food, the waiter delivers the food to the customer.

This is exactly how an API works. The customer here is the healthcare website developer, the waiter is the API, and the cook is the webserver.

APIs act as messengers delivering one application’s request to another and return a response in real-time. If you like to explore more on the importance of API integration, then take a look at our blog.

Healthcare API Use Cases

1. Bridging the Gap Between Doctors & Patients

By integrating API with your IoT devices, your patient’s data will instantly be reflected in your dashboard. Then based on the record, you can provide treatment. This treatment-based information will be displayed on the platform of patients and saved in your system. This cuts the overhead costs of decision-makers and improves treatment efficiency.

2. Integrating Healthcare Operations

Clinical API is for internal purposes for collecting employee data, staff’s requirements, improves data management, etc. Also, it facilitates record sharing with other hospitals and medical offices. This integration reduces your overtime costs, medical errors, and better serves patients.

3. Data Integration

API integration allows patients to leverage health fitness trackers and other smart healthcare devices by connecting them with electronic health record (EHR) systems.

4. Patient Information

With healthcare APIs, you can add the patient’s information into a system that works with insurance companies. The APIs will determine the patient’s coverage for medication or insurance policies, and others.

5. Mobile Health

Mobile health or mHealth transforms clinical workflows by bringing critical data to the point of care through mobile or web applications. Also, patients can use mHealth solutions to pay for their medical care.

Benefits of Integrating API with Your Healthcare Website

Before learning how to choose the right API for your healthcare system, let us explore the benefits of integrating with healthcare APIs. Here, we have categorized the benefits that developers, hospitals, scientists, and patients can leverage with API integration.

For Developers

Developers can use predesigned API integration tools and features that facilitate healthcare web app development. This builds your web app comparatively in a short time and reduces your development costs.

For example, AdvancedMD has more than 40+ templates for multiple specialties and workflow optimization. Developers can just customize them and add all the functionality they need.

For Hospitals

APIs help healthcare providers improve the usability of electronic health records with the assistance of third-party software. With APIs, doctors can finally know that all patient history is consolidated in one place and is easy to access.

For example, APIs like Eviti Web API enable doctors to decide on the most appropriate treatment based on the patient’s diagnosis and type of health insurance. APIs like DrChrono API help doctors bill patients and manage appointments.

APIs also store the patient data facilitating patients to take consultations from other healthcare centers without going through receptionists and making unnecessary phone calls. Also, they can benefit from the integration of smart devices with EHR systems.

For example, HIPAA-compliant Human API extracts the patient’s real-time data from multiple files and securely shares it with patients and healthcare providers.

For Scientists

As APIs improve international collaboration and ensure fast access to information, they leave room for scientists to conduct medical research. If APIs were not used, researchers would conduct scattered studies and results would come much slower. APIs help medical scientists quickly process the results of multiple studies, assist in discovering advanced therapies, and research the development of genetic and chronic conditions.

For example, GluVue is built using APIs that provide researchers with large and valuable data sets. To view continuous glucose monitoring data, scientists from Stanford University are using GluVue.

How to Choose API for Your Healthcare Website?

There are many APIs in the market for various purposes. Based on your requirement you should choose the right API. Here, we have listed a few important things to look for in an API before integration.

1. Features

Know what features you need and filter your selection based on that. For example, Paypal API provides an authorized-capture process for funds whereas Stripe does not.

2. Documentation

Documentation must have clear examples in such a way that we can get the gist of ​​how it works at a glance. For example, the TVmaze API provides clear documentation with sample code making it possible to implement it quickly.

3. Data Formats

Data was expressed in various lighter and easy-to-use formats including XML, JSON, etc. Some APIs still return data in a URL encoded string. The type of data format is easy for humans to read. Choose the right format that you require.

4. Interface

Go through the documentation and personalize the parameter names as you prefer.

5. API Limits

The API limits in systems open to the public are set to avoid abuses by API customers but based on the type of customers these limits can be flexible. Managing the API limits can lead to complexities because we must know how to administer them in such a way that we do not exceed the limit.

6. Language Support

Depending on the API’s complexity, it is important that your provider gives examples of code in the programming language or a library that talks with the API in the language in question. For instance, Google Analytics and its large number of libraries covering the most current programming languages.

7. Community & Support

The API provider should provide support forums, the community should be helpful and active. For example, the eBay API has had great success not only because of its magnitude but also because the application operates as a platform, in such a way that it greatly facilitates its use both inside and outside of eBay itself.

Keep this checklist as a reference and choose a perfect API for your e-learning business.

Importance of APIs in Education

The COVID-19 pandemic has paved the way for digital transformation in the education industry. Schools and colleges have adopted online learning. According to the e-learning industry, the global e-learning market will reach $325 billion by 2025.

To provide a hassle-free learning experience to the students and to reduce the manual activities of the teachers, e-learning web developers started relying on application programming interfaces (APIs).

As an educational institute, you will have to enroll students, secure their details, collect fees, take attendance, conduct exams, distribute the test marks, send reports to the parents, share lesson materials, and others. To carry out all these operations, you no need to build separate systems.

Versatile APIs follow a few protocols that allow you to communicate with the server and retrieve the data to your e-learning website.

In this blog, we will unveil the mystery about the importance of API, how to integrate API, and best education APIs as well.

Let’s get started.

How does API Work on an Education Website?

API development uses the concept of Platform as a Service (PaaS) and contributes a lot to give a new shape to the education industry. An API is an intermediary between the developer and the system server.

The developer requests the server regarding what he/she is in need of through an API. Then, the server will process the request and send back the data or service through the API.

Just imagine you are developing an e-learning website. Now, you want to engage students. For this, you planned to provide rewards and bonus points by conducting small quizzes in the middle of sessions and playing fun games. Without separately building a quizzing or gaming platform, you can just initiate an API call.

When the API enters the scene, magic happens. API will connect with servers of dedicated quizzing platforms like Kahoot, Socrative, Quizlet, etc, and integrate them into your website.

The easiest way to understand the working of APIs is to think about a common scenario between a customer, a waiter, and a restaurant. A customer talks to the waiter and tells the waiter what he/she wants. The waiter takes down the order and communicates it to the cook. After the cook prepares the food, the waiter delivers the food to the customer.

This is exactly how an API works. The customer here is the e-learning website developer, the waiter is the API, and the cook is the webserver. APIs are a set of protocols that allow software devices to communicate with each other using a simple set of commands.

They act as messengers delivering one application’s request to another and return a response in real-time. If you like to explore more on the importance of API integration, then take a look at our blog.

How to Choose API for Your Education Website?

We live in an API-driven world. There are millions of APIs in the market for various purposes. Based on your requirement you should choose the right API. Here, we have listed a few important things to look for in an API before integration.

Features

Know what features are required for you and filter your selection based on that. For example, Paypal API provides an authorized-capture process for funds whereas Stripe does not.

Documentation

Documentation must have clear examples in such a way that we can get the gist of ​​how it works at a glance. For example, the TVmaze API provides clear documentation with sample code making it possible to implement it extremely quickly.

Data Formats

Data was expressed in various lighter and easy-to-use formats including XML, JSON, etc. Some APIs still return data in a URL encoded string. The type of data format is easy for humans to read. Choose the right format that you require.

Interface

Go through the documentation and personalize the parameter names as you prefer.

API Limits

The API limits in systems open to the public are set to avoid abuses by API customers but based on the type of customers these limits can be flexible. Managing the API limits can lead to complexities because we must know how to administer them in such a way that we do not exceed the limit.

Language Support

Depending on the API’s complexity, it is important that your provider gives examples of code in the programming language or a library that talks with the API in the language in question. For instance, Google Analytics and its large number of libraries covering the most current programming languages.

Community & Support

The API provider should provide support forums, the community should be helpful and active. For example, the eBay API has had great success not only because of its magnitude but also because the application operates as a platform, in such a way that it greatly facilitates its use both inside and outside of eBay itself.

Keep this checklist as a reference and choose a perfect API for your e-learning business.
