Modern software solutions leverage Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect data points between each other. This flow of information is meant to provide relevant information to key stakeholders wherever and whenever it is needed. This is similar to a retailer providing the information that a customer needs at the point of purchase, except in a home care environment; the software is providing the necessary information – for example, medical information or scheduling details – at the point of care. So why does this matter? Because clients will travel many different ways across the continuum of care, and their data should do the same. Indeed, in an age where data sharing is important – even vital in the health and home care industries – software solutions need to be seamless. Adrian will educate attendees on what APIs are and how their integration can enhance your business operations. Speaker/Course Author - Adrian Schauer, B.Eng., M.A.Sc. Read More
