Strata Health is pleased to announce the launch of a REST based application-programming interface (API) along with the landmark 7.1 version of our award-winning Strata PathWays™ software. This API will allow Strata Health to leverage the existing proprietary resource matching and eReferral logic to deliver content to a variety of unique platforms. In addition to the traditional ways of using Strata PathWays™, our customers will also be able access the solution using:
- iPad or Android tablets
- Portal platforms and clinical viewers
- Electronic White Boards in hospital units
- Patient facing applications such as HealthVault
Traditionally, clinicians have accessed Strata PathWays™ using a web browser on a workstation or laptop. As health systems continue to explore point of care technologies to optimize clinician workflow and workload, the requirement for any device to consume Strata PathWays™ data has become more urgent.
One of the first tools created leveraging this API is an assessment application developed for the Apple iPad. This application is an extension of a proof of concept created last year, and allows for the completion of an eReferral assessment on this mobile platform.
“This represents another tangible clinician-focused outcome from our ongoing investment in our Strategic Development Roadmap.” commented Darren Jones, Chief Operating Officer. “The combination of new device form factors with our API truly allows us to evolve the delivery of Strata PathWays™ in so many novel and exciting ways for our users. This is just the beginning.”
“Our users will benefit from this technology indirectly as well,” continued Jones. “Our new API gives us and our clinical partners the ability to easily integrate with low overhead at both ends, which means less time spent retyping the same information and less time spent fixing clerical errors.”
