SHIN-NY API and Innovation
Innovators looking to develop software products that meet healthcare providers needs across the state will, in the future, be able to make use of the SHIN-NY Application Programming interface (API). The API, which will provide a gateway into the SHIN-NY, is essential to the creation of an ecosystem of collaboration among patients, providers, public health officials, and innovators in response to shifting health technology needs.
An API sandbox environment will shortly be available for companies to begin developing and testing their products using a breadth of clinical information.
The API’s initial capabilities will relate to querying patient record information. Data includes clinical and administrative information from HIEs (made up of hospitals, labs, long-term care providers, community health centers, and primary care physicians). The API will include the appropriate consents, privacy, and security policies to ensure data safety.
