Application Programming Interface (API) Task Force

The Application Programming Interface (API) Task Force will be charged with:

  • Identify perceived security concerns and real security risks that are barriers to the widespread adoption of open APIs in healthcare.
    • For risks identified as real, identify those that are not already planned to be addressed in the Interoperability Roadmap (for example, identity proofing and authentication are not unique to APIs);
  • Identify perceived privacy concerns and real privacy risks that are barriers to widespread adoption of open APIs  in healthcare.   
    • For risks identified as real, identify those that are not already planned to be addressed in the Interoperability Roadmap (for example, harmonizing state law and misunderstanding of HIPAA);
  • Identify priority recommendations for ONC that will help enable consumers to leverage API technology to access patient data, while ensuring the appropriate level of privacy and security protection.
