Webinar – APIs for Data Liquidity in Pandemic Times

by | Sep 5, 2020

How are APIs being leveraged to enable a response to the pandemic?

Hear from executives at Change Healthcare, Lyniate, and Datica about their work deploying APIs that are enabling new functionality to address COVID-19.

Unlocking value from the data scattered across healthcare communities was once a tantalizing opportunity. After COVID-19, it is an existential necessity. Conventional development and integration approaches, whose limits were well understood before the pandemic, contributed little to understanding or responding to the unfolding crisis. Enterprises across healthcare, already wrestling with a combination of market forces, government mandates, and improved technology, are looking with new urgency beyond their own processes and organizations for a path to clinical and financial sustainability.

Senior Analyst Brian Murphy recently published an industry research report on the state of the API market in Open APIs in Healthcare: The Future of Data Integration. He will be sharing key findings from the research and leading a moderated discussion with the panelists to hear about the work they’ve done with clients over the past several months.
