It’s easier than ever to track, view, and visualize records with Particle’s developer portal!
We’re excited to unveil two new features that present more information within Particle’s developer portal!
Now you can:
all from our robust developer portal.
These make our portal simpler to use in real world situations, and easier for new users to understand. Here’s a quick preview of what’s new:
Our FHIR Record Viewer has evolved. Say hello to VISUALIZATIONS!
Yes, FHIR Viewer now defaults to an EHR-like presentation. We think these visuals are looking mighty fine.
But put your magnifying glass away! Let’s zoom in.
How’s that for a start? Jump into our portal to check out other new visualizations, like height, weight, and respiratory data.
FHIR is new for many of us. Seeing these FHIR resources in action can help you share knowledge with your team, or decide how to use visualizations in your own implementation.
Visualizations of FHIR resources work whether you’re in Test Mode or (coming very soon) Live Mode.
Simply make a FHIR query via the API Console and select “View in FHIR Viewer” upon completion. Or, navigate directly to the FHIR Viewer.
You can still navigate to the Table View, which lists data in columns as it did before. A new tab for Raw View shows the underlying code of selected Table View resources.
Starting today, you can access query volume information directly from the Metrics Dashboard on your portal homepage.
This will help you keep track of the total number of queries you’ve made, and their success rate. Query data is vital for troubleshooting, billing and load balancing purposes.
Calls are broken down by API type (C-CDA and FHIR), in both Test and Live Environments. There’s a ton of information here!
Seeing how your queries perform might just change how you use Particle’s API. Previously, users had to contact Particle to determine their query volume, or had to build a counting system within their own implementation. We’re happy to put that power into your hands.
Note that all users within your organization — regardless of their role — will be able to see the metrics for your entire organization at this time.
Our FHIR visualizations serve a testing purpose, and they also look flat-out cool. Other dashboards give you a better look at how you’re using Particle’s platform.
We’ve got more changes in store. Putting FHIR data into context helps clear the way for even bigger updates on Particle’s portal. It’s turning our platform into a destination for product managers and clinical staff, as well as developers.
As always, Particle is eager to hear what you think about our tools. Got any additional visualization needs? Once you’ve tried our updates, send us an email!
Particle uses OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework to ensure secure access to medical data to our customers. Given that this framework is very complex, we've put together an overview that explores how it works by sharing examples of how we use this technology in our everyday lives.
We know what APIs are, and what they do. So why choose an API as a product? APIs have become largely ubiquitous in the tech landscape, and for good reason. While there are alternatives, it's important to understand why we don’t choose them. Check out Part 2 of our three part miniseries on APIs.
