APIs know, Prevention is better than cure
This shift from malady treatment to preventative care won't take place overnight. It's just getting started at Kaiser. But its approach shows how creating services out of your internal applications and making them available through well crafted APIs can change the nature of your business. Kaiser has made emergency room location and hours available throught its location API. Let's hope the next late night allergy case finds it. Did anyone at the Apigee "I Love APIs" conference have any ideas for an app?

Self-tracking apps used for preventative care will be the next wave in healthcare -- once the industry can figure out not only how to incorporate that data into EHRs, but also how to find what's important within all of those data points. A doctor doesn't need to know about your every heartbeat, just if that heartbeat becomes irregular. Whoever can figure out not only how to collect that type of data, but also how to filter it and mine it effectively, will be on the forefront of something big.
