The Impact of APIs in Healthcare
Everyday, organizations are leveraging APIs to re-imagine healthcare. Providers are using APIs to extend the point of care beyond the four walls of the hospital ward, and health insurance companies are moving from passive payers of claims to active managers of their policyholders' lifestyle.
Join us as our guest speakers Kin Lane, who as a Presidential Innovation Fellow is spearheading the adoption of APIs at the Department of Veteran Affairs, and Ed Martin, Deputy Director at UCSF's Medical Center and Center for Digital Health Innovation, discuss how APIs are impacting healthcare today.
Issues that they will address include:
- What is an API, anyway, and what does it have to do with healthcare?
- How are APIs being used to improve patient outcomes?
- What is the next horizon in APIs? How important is API Management?
