Change Healthcare introduces API products marketplace

Change Healthcare unveiled its API & Services Connection, a marketplace for open, standards-based application programming interface (API) products. Now, any healthcare organization – payers, providers, vendors, consultants, and independent developers – can leverage the same capabilities that power the company's industry-leading healthcare financial, clinical, and engagement solutions.

Subscription to the catalogue of APIs is managed through the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace – making it easy for healthcare organizations to rapidly innovate digital health solutions at scale on AWS. Change Healthcare will provide comprehensive enablement tools, including implementation guides from the Argonaut Project, an initiative to advance industry adoption of modern, open interoperability standards. -

"Our productized APIs empower healthcare start-ups, hospitals and health plans, and other healthcare-focused businesses to more rapidly develop innovative products and services while meeting regulatory requirements," said Gautam M. Shah, vice president, Platform and Marketplace at Change Healthcare. "Our APIs help reduce application development time, testing, and cost – while promoting interoperability and fostering innovation."

API products providing solutions to power Revenue Cycle Management, Payment, and Medical Eligibility workflows are now available in the Change Healthcare API & Services Connection. Change Healthcare expects to have hundreds of open, standards-based APIs available that represent the company's comprehensive portfolio of healthcare IT solutions, as well as API-based solutions from its partners.

"Companies in the digital health space are trending towards using more and more purpose-built APIs to manage specific parts of the patient access and billing workflows," said Nathan Swartley, director of product at Hinge Health. "Hinge Health is using the Change Healthcare Eligibility API to verify new applicants across multiple payers and deliver speedy implementations for our customers."
