1 min read

The Department of Veterans Affairs has released an application programming interface that would help veterans manage health data via mobile devices.


The VA said Friday its Health API is designed to work with the next iterations of Blue Button, the department’s service made to ease data access for veterans.

The new Health API would also work to facilitate health system data exchanges in support of veterans, and aid clinician-focused apps.

The department unveiled the Health API at the White House Executive Forum on Healthcare Data Interoperability.

The API also complies with the Argonaut Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, a standard aimed at making APIs more interoperable to address modern needs.
