drchrono releases API for developers


Drchrono, Inc. recently launched its application programming interface (API) that will allow developers to build their own healthcare applications.

Mountain View, CA-Drchrono, Inc., the creator of a free electronic medical record (EMR) platform on the iPad, iPhone, and cloud, recently released its application programming interface (API)
 that will allow developers to build their own healthcare applications on top of the drchrono platform.

Only 1.3% of APIs listed on ProgrammableWeb, an API database, are associated with the medical services sector. Innovators have avoided developing applications for the healthcare industry due to high regulations and the difficulty in accessing APIs from health institutions. Drchrono wants to ease developers’ requests to the API as easy as a sign-up and one-week review process. Drchrono would like to encourage developers to find opportunities in the evolving healthcare space to launch new companies. The current procedure for accessing a health institution’s API involves working with the organization’s business development team, a potentially lengthy process. Because each institution uses its own API, it can be a very time consuming process for companies to access it. By leveraging drchrono, these organizations can access their patients’ information for application construction within a week.
