Kaiser Permanente Launches Open Health API with Facility Info, Self-Tracking Data Coming Soon

Integrated health system Kaiser Permanente is launching an open API, called Interchange, that will enable developers to use publicly available information from Kaiser Permanente in their own apps. Initially, Kaiser Permanente will share data about the location, hours of operation and specialty information for the organization’s 37 hospitals and more than 600 medical offices. That location data formed the basis for the company’s first-ever mobile app, KP Locator.
