OtoAccess® API is an application programming interface (API) that allows electronic medical record (EMR) system suppliers, or electronic health record (EHR) system suppliers, to interact with Interacoustics solutions in a safe and well-defined interface. By utilizing OtoAccess® API, EMR providers can create optimal workflows for clinicians using their system.
When you open your EMR system, it will know which Interacoustics solutions are available and present these as options for you to use in the user interface of your EMR system. When you choose a patient and test method, the test results will automatically be saved in your EMR system. This reduces the amount of time you spend transferring result data.
OtoAccess® API is implemented by your EMR provider as a web API, running as a Windows® Service. It is a REST API, also known as a RESTful API. REST stands for representational state transfer, which is an API architectural style. This is well-documented and easily accessed for your database developer to implement. Once implemented, it will work for all Interacoustics solutions and will require little-to-no work to include future Interacoustics solutions.
Your EMR provider must enter into an OtoAccess® API usage agreement. They must contact your Interacoustics sales office or email@example.com to apply for an agreement and the OtoAccess® API software package.
