Every day we hear stories of rising healthcare costs. What if a solution could drive cost savings and add value? Following my previous Black Friday blog post and continuing the trend of holiday deals and specials, we’re excited to announce the release of our new ROI calculator. This calculator estimates the total cost savings innovative digital health companies can realize for both themselves and their customers when switching from legacy integration solutions (such as HL7 and extracts) to Emissary®, our proven application programming interface (API) solution.

As discussed by my colleague, Dave Levin MD, in his recent blog post, Liberate Applications with API-Based EMR Integration, application programming interfaces (APIs) allow seamless data exchange and integration into clinical workflows. APIs provide robust, EMR-agnostic integration that rapidly deploy and can quickly evolve. While APIs have many benefits, they also provide additional security for health systems and protection of patient privacy.
