The BetterDoctor API: Updates and New Features to Come in 2017!

Last year was a phenomenal year for the BetterDoctor API. The amount of developers using the BetterDoctor API grew by 70 % and their intense coding resulted in 1340 % growth in API calls. We were also honored to get the Best of Health Care API award. Thank you for using our API!

So what’s coming in 2017? This year, we’re going to do our best to help our developer community create healthcare related applications using our API. To do this, we have enabled our new API users to 50 calls per minute, so if you’d like a higher rate limit send us a note.
