Independent Health’s Interoperability API Developer Information

What we are providing:

Independent Health has adopted and developed a set of Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) API resources that deliver standardized data formats to registered application developers.

Independent Health’s Interoperability (FHIR) API Developer Registration provides third-party application developers with access to detailed documentation, registration services, and other developer services related to application programming interfaces (“APIs”) provided by Independent Health or one of its partners.

Independent Health has implemented the FHIR API’s and resources associated with those API’s based on:

The above implementations are based on HL7 FHIR Release 4 framework in pursuant to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule (CMS-9115-F).

 

Our API Functionality:

The Patient Access API allows FHIR compliant application developers to retrieve our current member’s data (with Member approval). Retrieving this data will require the registration of the developer’s application or service through our developer’s registration process.

  • Data related to Explanation of Benefits (EOBs from adjudicated claims)
