The global healthcare landscape is going digital while regulations and the pandemic accelerate this trend. As predicted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the industry has seen explosive growth of healthcare apps addressing use cases built on top of public APIs. Now, the ONC and CMS Patient Access final rule, as well as the Information Blocking rule in the U.S, impose deadlines for most healthcare organizations to expose clinical data via APIs.

API security, patient consent management, and data privacy are fast becoming major design considerations for public healthcare APIs. While public APIs provide accessibility and the platform for innovation, they also significantly increase the risk of data breaches. The ideal solution provides full lifecycle API management with pre-built FHIR® APIs alongside powerful AI-driven API security protection and centralized monitoring.

By attending this online webinar, you will learn the best-practices for healthcare organizations to design, connect, secure and monitor their FHIR® API endpoints and adhere to Interoperability Compliance Requirements. The webinar will articulate 4 clear steps for healthcare organizations to plan for and meet ONC and CMS Patient Access final rule compliance.

During the webinar, we will cover:

  • Design FHIR® compliant APIs that enable interoperability and the automate prior authorization process
  • Connect and convert data from existing formats to FHIR® format using out-of-box data templates
  • Make data available securely
  • Monitor API user analytics and API activity tracking

Recommended for:

  • Security architects
  • Enterprise architects
  • Solution architects
