It’s after five o’clock, and you’ve got a weird rash running up your arm. You call your doctor, but instead end up talking to an after-hours operator, who jots down notes, hangs up and then calls the doctor for you. Ringadoc feels patients would rather interact with their doctors directly, so it has developed an automated answering service that lets physicians receive and manage after-hour voice messages from patients. The company just released the Ringadoc API to help keep these interactions HIPPA compliant.
Google has just announced the introduction of the Google Plus Sign-In, a new feature of the Google Plus platform that allows developers using the Google Plus API to add a secure sign-in to their web and mobile applications.
One of the more interesting APIs added here recently comes from BT, British Telecom. It's not so much a single API but a set of early beta APIs code-named Web21C, part of their larger £10 billion 21st century network initiative called 21CN, an IP-based, multi-service network.
