Third Party Integrations (partners)
Patients Know Best provides HL7 and custom REST APis to enable our supported partners to send data into a patient record. The specific workflow to be followed and APIs to be used will be dependent on the nature of the application or device requiring integration. The key factors in determining this will be:
Sending data directly from an application
Where an integrating partner has a requirement to send data directly from an application (e.g an app on a mobile device) this is generally achieved utilising the PKB custom REST APIs, using patient granted permissions.
Sending data from a partner server with a known NHS number
When a partner stores data from a device or application for a patient with a known NHS number on their own server, the sending of that data to PKB is commonly achieved through the use of the PKB HL7 APIs. An example of this could be where there is a professional dashboard that is used alongside or instead of a patient application.
An example of an integration using partner credentials to post measurement data is Current Health, see our manual here for the UI experience of this workflow.
