Welcome to Horizon Interoperability
Enabling APIs to leverage access to a patient’s clinical and administrative data.
The APIs of Horizon Connected Interoperability Solution provide the basis for building healthcare applications, such as mobile, that deliver HL7® FHIR® data to members and providers on demand. Example of application use cases can include viewing test results, checking on medications, and reviewing recent office visits.
Our APIs allow access to clinical, administrative and formulary drug plan information about a patient, as well as provide detailed provider directory information. Applications will securely interact with this data on behalf of the patient in order to deliver patients real-time access to their healthcare data.
For a set of data sharing principles and best practices for healthcare applications, read the CARIN code of conduct.
To get started with the Developer Portal, read the Developer Portal User Guide.
