Application Programming Interface (API)
The site has five main parts. Each aligns to a phase of development and partner engagement with NHS Digital, as shown below. The Communication Channels let you engage with each phase of the Ecosystem. They are enabling components.
A summary of the activities and the support material in each of the phases are as follows:
|non-technical and high-level technical documentation to get started with the development|
|first taste of API through an interactive online console with full API reference, type system, and (ReST) resource definitions|
|business processes, code samples, and system test environments|
|NHS Digital validation, integration testing, technical accreditation, and guidance to clinical safety and information governance|
|registration, deployment certificates and monitoring|
