The engine links patient information with pieces of content in the knowledge base and returns a list of likely conditions (preliminary diagnosis), care suggestions (triage), or both.
How do healthcare organizations quickly implement such tools in their daily practice? The answer is clear and short - via APIs (application programming interfaces). The content is constantly reviewed and updated by medical professionals.
A diagnostic engine. Their mission is to keep patients better informed about the possible roots of their conditions and provide clinicians with decision support. This is an overview of available diagnosis API along with their primary use cases. But first, let's examine the main parts and core functionality of diagnosis API that can be integrated into a hospital's daily workflow.
DDxHub API is not here to put real physicians out of work. Often powered by AI, it analyzes patient data inputs (like demographics, symptoms, and lab tests) or automatically extracts clinical features from electronic health records. It contains data on conditions, diseases, and treatment procedures. Typically, diagnosis API includes two major components.
A knowledge base.
Azure Storage uses TLS 1.2 on public HTTPS endpoints, but TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 are still supported for backward compatibility.
Also, that provides cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) to allow client-side code of web applications to interact with the Diagnosis API, but please make sure you never expose your API credentials in any client-side code of public websites.
The Diagnosis API can be easily integrated with any existing HTTP client by using any popular programming languages and frameworks. Azure Storage currently supports three versions of the TLS protocol: 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2. /api/DDxItems).
JSON is the only data format supported by Diagnosis API. However, you need to use only two last of them.
Use GET requests to retrieve data that do not require any data to be sent in the requests body.
Use POST requests for actions that require data to be sent in the request's body (e.g. Requests, like responses, should be encoded in UTF-8.Moreover, the POST actions expect request bodies formatted as JSON objects. The API hosted on Azure storage. Error messages are also in JSON. All requests to the API must be made via HTTPS. The Diagnosis API is available at https://diagnosisapi.azurewebsites.net. All of our endpoints return JSON objects or lists. As any RESTfull service, the API supports four HTTP methods: DELETE, PUT, GET, and POST. The API content is read-only and all of the API responses always return the same output for the same input, no matter how many times you call them.
