SAN FRANCISCO, CA (July 27, 2016) – We’re excited to announce that BetterDoctor API has received a 2016 API Award for the category: Health APIs.

The 2016 API Awards are the API Industry’s largest award event, taking place during the API World 2016 Conference & Expo (San Jose Convention Center), the world’s largest API conference & expo with 3,000 attendees.

The 2016 API Awards received hundreds of nominations, and the API World advisory board selected our product based on three criteria: Reputation in the API Industry, Recent Media Coverage, and Innovativeness of the API initiatives. “BetterDoctor API is a great example of how more and more of the tech industry is realizing that APIs are not just how we integrate tools and apps, APIs are the new way of doing business and building new revolutionary technologies.” Said Geoff Domoracki, founder of API World.

Tapio Tolvanen, CTO & Co-founder of BetterDoctor said, “we are excited to be recognized as an industry-changing API in healthcare. BetterDoctor’s API offers easy access to the best doctor data ranging from name, address and phone number to BetterDoctor quality score and NPI number. Since the API launch in September 2014 close to 1,000 API clients have signed up and today the API powers over 6,000,000 doctor searches each month. This is a testament to how our work is clearing the way for more innovation in the industry to help people find the care they need.”
