The healthcare world is going digital while regulations and the pandemic are accelerating that trend. The Patient Access final rule and the Information Blocking rule in the U.S requires most healthcare insurers to expose patient data as APIs by July 2021 - at the same time, healthcare providers are expected to expose services as APIs to 3rd party developers. And the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services predict explosive growth of healthcare apps in this space that addresses use cases that are built on top of public 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 drive up significantly the risk of data breaches. The ideal solution should provide full lifecycle API management and pre-built FHIR® APIs alongside powerful AI driven API security protection and centralized monitoring.
In this webinar, WSO2 and Ping will look at how U.S. regulations are driving healthcare innovation. The focus will be on pre-built healthcare APIs and how API Management accelerates compliance. We’ll then focus on the importance of API security, and how AI driven security models help uncover basic to advanced security threats. We’ll also look at specific healthcare API security threats and best practises to identify and mitigate them.
