1upHealth supports patient mediated data access via NYC Health + Hospitals's FHIR API for healthcare data. NYC Health + Hospitals, officially the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, operates the public hospitals and clinics in New York City. A public benefit corporation with $6.7 billion in annual revenues, HHC is the largest municipal healthcare system in the United States serving 1.4 million patients, including more than 475,000 uninsured city residents, providing services interpreted in more than 190 languages. HHC was created in 1969 by the New York State Legislature as a public benefit corporation. It is similar to a municipal agency, but has a Board of Directors. It operates 11 acute care hospitals, five nursing homes, six diagnostic and treatment centers, and more than 70 community-based primary care sites, serving primarily the poor and working class. HHCs own MetroPlus Health Plan is one of the New York areas largest providers of government-sponsored health insurance and is the plan of choice for nearly half a million New Yorkers.
This means that any app developers using the 1upHealth platform will be able to get access to their users' medical data from NYC Health + Hospitals. To learn more about how you can get access take a look at the our healthcare api platform documentation.
