In this episode, we talk to John Orosco, cofounder and CTO for Sansoro Health. John recently attended the ONC Technical Expert Panel in Bethesda, MD along with about a dozen other health IT stakeholders including the major EHRs, digital health application developers, middleware companies and patient advocates. This diverse panel took a deep dive into both the technical and business aspects of using application program interfaces (APIs) in healthcare.

The agenda covered three main areas:

  • Challenges and Opportunities to Promote Write APIs
  • Challenges and Barriers to Increase the Development of Patient-Facing Apps
  • Business/Pricing Models for APIs and App Development

As we hear from John, this set of topics provided important insights to guide future development, collaboration, and policy decisions. It’s not as geeky as it sounds and John, as usual, does a great job of explaining complex technical issues.
