We quickly realized that Healthcare Interoperability 3.0 will have two types of value buckets: table stakes and key differentiators. We worked on both.
You may have noticed that we've been pretty quiet since we raised our Series A in May. No PR releases, no big blog posts, no special announcements. Our team naturally fell into a proverbial creativity-hole, thinking and rethinking our product and imagining a fully interoperable healthcare system from the ground up. It was like a collective 3AM moment when you got sucked into an art project, music recording or coding session, only to bring your head up, notice the time and look at what you had created—only ours was four months long.
So what have we been doing?
We quickly realized that Healthcare Interoperability 3.0 will have two types of value buckets: table stakes and key differentiators. We worked on both. But first, here are the table stakes. All quality, next-gen interop platforms in healthcare will have:
We’re operating under the assumption that access to data will quickly be commoditized as regulation forces it to open up. Our vision for being truly unique within this space allowed us to focus us on three main things:
Even though we’ve been quiet, it doesn't mean we haven’t been busy. We’ve signed 20+ great customers too… groups like Oak Street Health, Medly Pharmacy and Cureatr are powering their businesses with Particle. When access to clean, actionable data is this simple… all of a sudden there are endless healthcare possibilities.

Particle Health offers two distinct APIs: C-CDA and FHIR. They both offer the same level of unparalleled access to patient health data, but they differ significantly in how they offer access to that data. Let’s dig into Part 3 of our three part miniseries on APIs.
What is an HIE? Here, we cover all its definitions to fully understand the role they play in sharing medical data in healthcare. We also discuss the different types of HIEs along with some examples.
