When healthcare professionals talk about the benefits of a 360-degree view of the patient — or Patient360 — the discussion often ignores the complexities involved in pulling that off. Patient360 demands that organizations convert systems of record into systems of engagement. Or rather, it is about making it possible for new, modern systems of engagement to easily draw data from existing systems of record.
That, in turn, requires a platform that allows all the players in the healthcare lifecycle, which include payers, providers, third-party services used by either, and patients to exchange data securely with a minimum of friction.

Open healthcare’s time has arrived.
What the healthcare marketplace needs now is a way to easily provide and share products and services that enable healthcare consumers, providers, payers, and third-party services to interact with greater ease. Such an open healthcare marketplace will push the boundaries of data transparency for healthcare consumers.
This might sound to some like an impossible dream for healthcare, but API integration provides a clear path to making open healthcare a reality.
