SHIN-NY API: Providing Developers with Access to Rich Clinical Data
This workshop will introduce eHealth innovators to the State Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY) API, which serves as a gateway to state-wide clinical patient information for over 19 million New Yorkers. The API assists in fostering an ecosystem of collaboration among patients, providers, public health officials and innovators in response to shifting health technology needs. An API sandbox environment is available for companies to begin developing and testing their products using a breadth of clinical information. The API’s initial capabilities are related to querying patient record information, while future capabilities will include access to care plan summaries as well as functionality related to secure alerts for physicians and patients. The New York eHealth Collaborative will explain the API, and AdhereTx, a member of the New York Digital Accelerator inaugural class, will demonstrate how it is using clinical data from the SHIN-NY to power its innovative medication reconciliation application.
