RipRoad is a mobile medical service connection company that converts complicated medial and mobile technology into an accessible interface. RipRoad provides companies and users with greater access to health related services. They offer programs that cover influenza, prenatal care, asthma alerts, a Q&A health program for teenagers, an appointment reminder program, a messaging program, and several others. The RipRoad API allows users to integrate third-party services with existing RipRoad programs to enhance functionality. An account is required with service.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the CoolClimate Calculator API. CoolClimate is a survey that allows users to answer various carbon footprint related questions to get an estimate on the tons of carbon they emit into the environment each year. The API gives developers the freedom to integrate this survey with third party apps. On top of emission estimates, the survey provides information on how to decrease carbon emissions. To learn more about the CoolClimate Calculator API visit the CoolClimate site as well as the CoolClimate API blog post.
There are many ways to slice the tools medical providers need to make their practices work efficiently. One is the full-service, broadly focused athenahealth or AdvancedMD. RipRoad takes a different route, focusing on connecting providers and payors to patients on their mobile devices. The RipRoad API integrates their tools (that include e-mail, SMS, MMS, IVR, push notifications, native smartphones apps and the mobile web) with third parties.
