Nextech API Access for Patients
How can I use the Nextech Patient APIs?
As a patient of a provider using a Nextech EHR you can utilize the Nextech APIs to connect your personal health information to an application of your choice. You can choose what information to release to the apps you choose, and you can revoke this access at anytime you wish to do so. Management of application access to patient records will be done through your MyPatientVisit patient portal. If you do not have a patient portal, you will need to sign up for one in order to share your information to an app.
What steps do I need to take to connect my records to an app of my choice using the API?
To utilize an app of your choice the first step is to check the app to see if the app has a connection to the Nextech APIs today. You can do this by visiting the app website or signing into that app to see if they have Nextech listed as a connection. You will need to know which version of the Nextech software your provider is using: Nextech NexCloud/Select, IntelleChartPRO, or SRS Pro. You will choose to connect through the appropriate software version for your provider’s office.
SRS patients will access their information through the InteliChart Patient Portal. Please follow the same steps as above to connect to the app of your choice.
We will update the list below as new apps are added to our list of connections, so you can check here first. We will periodically update this list, however you should check the app website directly before requesting connection through your provider.
If the app is not already connected to Nextech’s APIs you can communicate directly with your healthcare provider to request access to the application. Your provider will contact Nextech to initiate access to the app. The app will be screened for security and if the app meets requirements a connection will be made and you will be able to access your MyPatientVisit data from the app.
To access the app you will enter your MyPatientVisit portal credentials in the app and grant access. You will have the ability to revoke access to the app at any time in the future through the patient portal.
