Open Data Guide

Making the most of health data requires an existing base of information connected to that health data. For example knowing the NPI number a patient saw is great, but knowing the specialization of the doctor associated with that NPI is even better. Similarly seeing an NDC code show up in a medications list is not helpful without knowing the actual name of that medication and the packaging dosage. That's why we make available a FHIR® API with much of this information already populated

To query any open data just append _public=true parameter to any FHIR® endpoint. Like any other request against our platform, you must have a valid access_token to query our public data. Here's an example of how you could find a list of all the public doctors (FHIR® provider) on 1upHealth.

curl -XGET 'https://api.1up.health/dstu2/Practitioner?_public=true' \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer access_token'

Populated FHIR® Resources

Medications, Practitioners, and Organization resources are pre-populated using open data. These all have public permissions and will be returned when using any valid auth token.

Other available data

In addition to fully populated FHIR® resources, when data is imported into 1upHealth we appropriately link it to codes like LOINC, ICD, and DRGs.
