Metriport - Plaid for Healthcare Data

Metriport helps digital health companies access and manage health and medical data, through an open-source and universal API.

Metriport is Plaid for healthcare data. We help digital health companies access and manage patient health and medical data, through an open-source and universal API.

Through a single integration, our API enables modern health companies to get the comprehensive patient data they need from both HIEs and EHRs, as well as popular wearable devices.

As a developer-first interoperability solution, Metriport is powering the next wave of innovative companies, accelerating a revolution in digital health.

Medical API

Serving as the world’s first open-source on-ramp to HIEs, our Medical API enables companies to seamlessly access comprehensive clinical histories for their patients.

Out-of-the-box, our solution provides access to medical records for ~90% of individuals in the United States, leveraging our data-sharing partners, CommonWell and Carequality.

How it works is simple: you provide basic demographic information about your patient — name, date of birth, gender, and address — and we return their medical records in standardized formats, such as FHIR and C-CDA.

If you’re a company looking to access patient medical records, get in touch with us today to learn how our Medical API can solve your interoperability needs.

Devices API

Our Devices API allows companies to gain access to their users’ health data from various wearables, RPM devices, and mHealth apps.

For developers, building integrations to various consumer device providers is a huge pain, as it means wrangling different data formats, gaining access to the APIs in the first place, standardizing the data, and ultimately spending precious developer resources building out data pipelines. We solve this pain for you through our developer-first solution, which only requires a few lines of code to get started with.

Out of the box, our Devices API supports the following integrations:

  • Apple Health
  • Google Fit
  • Fitbit
  • Garmin
  • Oura
  • Whoop
  • Withings
  • Cronometer
  • Dexcom

In addition to these integrations, you also get a pre-built Connect widget that you can easily embed in your app, so your users can connect with their data sources. Plus, it’s highly customizable, so you can tweak it to fit your app’s UI.

Why Open-Source?

We chose to build the world’s first open-source API for healthcare data, based on a number of advantages this offers:

  1. Immortal code: with our open-source approach, you’re reliant on our code, not our business. If a closed-source company goes out of business tomorrow, its customers are out of luck. With open-source, you get unparalleled reliability, always maintaining the ability to self-host the source code on your own servers. This advantage can be especially critical in healthcare, where organizations need to ensure longterm stability and success for their patients.

  2. Security: externally auditable source code makes Metriport more secure than our proprietary counterparts. Furthermore, closed-source vendors may not be as forthcoming about any security issues, leaving their customers vulnerable to potential security breaches. It goes without saying, but we’re also HIPAA and SOC 2 Type 1 and Type 2 compliant, thanks to our compliance monitoring partner, Vanta.

  3. Cost-effectiveness: in addition to offering a SaaS cloud hosted solution, we also offer our customers the ability to self-host our code, meaning there’s no risk of vendor lock-in. This is ideal for companies looking for a long term vendor partnership, knowing they can always self-host down the road once they scale their business.

  4. Customizability: our solutions allows customers to benefit from community contributions, and build their own custom features and integrations on top of our source code.
