Interoperability: Strengthening Healthcare’s API Ecosystem in a Safe, Secure and Scalable Manner

As the industry begins to implement the ability to move healthcare data exchange to an interoperable ecosystem, key barriers must be addressed. These include developing the ability to scale Client app registration (typically a manual process) and authentication in a secure manner. Currently, a client repeats the registration process with every server to gain registration and to assure reliable identities of senders and recipients can be met. The entire Application Programming Interface (API) ecosystem needs to be automated so that the registration process (prior to sharing of sensitive data) can move from a manual process to a scaled and dynamic ecosystem relying on credentials that can be safely used at multiple API endpoints due to their network-wide content.
