Is my data secure with Human API?
HumanAPI is HIPAA-compliant service, meaning it meets or exceeds U.S. government standards for medical data security, akin to those employed by national banks. More information about our Security measures can be found on our Security page.
Who has access to my data and for how long?
The philosophy behind Human API is that you, the consumer, are always in control of your data. Therefore Human API will never share your data with any other party unless you explicitly indicate you want to.
In this case, by authenticating to your provider(s) via Human API, you are explicitly authorizing Human API to retrieve your health data on your behalf and make it available to you, only for as long as you want.
What kind of information will Human API have access to?
The information contained in your connected data sources varies by type and provider; your healthcare provider’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) system likely contains details on encounters, conditions, medications, test results, immunizations, etc.
In other words, whatever information you have access to or can download on your provider's portal, Human API can access as well.
If I don’t have a profile for my medical records, how do I get one?
You can create an online profile at your provider’s portal. If you have located your provider in Human API’s service, you can look up the portal URL by clicking Register/Help button.
Can I revoke access?
Yes you can disconnect your data at any time by emailing email@example.com and requesting to have your account terminated and data disconnected.
If I feel there is a discrepancy or error in my EHR/EMR, how do I dispute that?
Human API retrieves your medical records from your provider’s portal, we do not modify any data. If you feel there is discrepancy or error in your data contact your provider directly to have the data corrected.
Does Human API offer access to Dentist, Chiropractor, Psychologist, or Physiotherapist records?
No, Human API does not currently have Dentists, Chiropractors, Psychologists, or Physiotherapists in our data network.
What if my provider is not supported?
If your provider is not supported you cannot connect your health data through Human API at this time.
Will I get a copy of my medical record?
If you'd like to see the data you connected, sign up for My Human API in the Connect experience or by registering at https://my.humanapi.co.
What username and password should I enter to connect my provider through Human API?
You should enter the username and password you use on your provider’s portal to access your medical account. Any other credentials will not work.
I visit more than one medical provider, can I connect multiple providers?
Yes, you can connect multiple providers, just click the “Add new connection” button after you've added your first source, then repeat the initial process to connect another provider.
