API: Improve efficiency and reduce cost with real-time data exchange
Application Programming Interfaces — more commonly known as API — provide free, secure and
efficient ways to seamlessly exchange data.
Why leverage an API in your practice?
APIs pave the way for interoperability, which includes accessing and exchanging data in real time. With
an API, you can automate transactions on a time table you set, and transfer the data to your practice
management system, proprietary software or any format you prefer. This can help reduce the burden of
administrative tasks and simplify your workflow.
