The official Validic Python SDK by Motivation Science calls the Validic REST API which collects data from medical wearables and clinical devices. These devices track health measurements over time. The developer needs to be a Validic Connect partner to use all CRUD operations. Validic combines patient data and health technology in one network.
Sickweather is known for its real-time illness tracking. Where hospitals and government agencies take weeks to report illness trends, Sickweather scans social media outlets for real-time tracking and reporting. Now, Sickweather has made the API behind the tracking service available to developers.
A growth in the number of new APIs being created to act as quantified self data tools could lead to a new wave of personal health applications. Data streamed via quantified self APIs could also potentially create new empirical datasets to support emerging sciences. The Moves API, Pokelog API and a forthcoming Human API all point to greater interest in pulling personal data into new applications.
