What is Open mHealth?
What’s possible with Open mHealth?
You need to be able to write applications that can process and create data, regardless of where the data came from. We can help with that. Our platform is built on structured health data, which helps companies, organizations, and individuals exchange data and reuse code. It also makes the data easier to understand.
We use schemas to define the structure of health data. We’ve brought together top clinical experts, data scientists, developers and software architects to come up with simple, extensible, and clinically valid schemas for the most common and important types of data in healthcare.
Whether you’re processing and analyzing health data or serving it to an application for visualization, you’re going to need to store the data in such a way that other components can access it. Our RESTful API lets components read and write health data without needing to know how the data is stored or where it came from. The API consumes and produces data that conforms to schemas, and authorizes access using OAuth 2.0.
If you’d like to download an implementation of the API, check out our open-source reference implementation. It’s backed by MongoDB and is easy to deploy using Docker.
Integrate disparate data streams
Get access to the digital health data your users create on 3rd party products and apps. Open mHealth’s open-source adapters pull in health and related data from the APIs of large providers like RunKeeper, Fitbit, Google and Apple, and convert it to match our schemas. This data can then be processed or visualized regardless of where it came from, letting you quickly prototype ideas or build production-ready applications.
