Zynx Health has announced a RESTful API that's compliant with the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standard data format. As providers of other EHR systems offer similarly compliant systems, patient data will theoretically flow with less friction across medical practitioners.
Claiming.com.au is set to launch an Australian Medicare API that should drastically improve eClaiming processes for developers working with the state funded and run healthcare system. Although Medicare has served as the primary healthcare system in Australia for almost 30 years, the system has run into major bottlenecks as its technological infrastructure has not always kept up with demand. The API allows software vendors to integrate online claiming with Medicare and the Department of Veteran's Affairs.
