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.

Better data means better applications, and in 2017 we will be continuing our work to offer you the best health care data by updating doctor information regularly. We will also give our clients the possibility to push data updates directly to our system – and directly to you.

Our free API was improved in many ways last year. We updated our API infrastructure to improve performance and uptime. Our API also now supports search by state code and locations slugs. If you would like hear about our Premium API features, please be in touch.

We’d love to hear your thinking on adding GraphQL to enable more specific API queries. Would that be useful to you? Let us know!

If there’s anything you might want to know, don’t hesitate to drop us a word.
