API is an emerging digital method in health care to distribute information from payers. Our API solutions allow you to electronically receive detailed data on member eligibility, claims status, payments, appeals and paper correspondence. Data can be transferred directly to your practice management, hospital information system or any application you prefer. Introduction to API
API requires technical coordination with a health care professional or business partner’s IT department, vendor or clearinghouse. During the initial consultation, we review compatibility and API connectivity options and transaction types.
When you’re ready to implement API, we provide direct onboarding and support in coordination with the Optum technical team. Once in production, we monitor API usage compared to call volumes to identify opportunities to further reduce incoming calls.

API is designed to help reduce phone calls and paper handling, while contributing to a smoother workflow. Automatic data feeds are created to pull information on a timetable you set, and transfer the data to your practice management system, proprietary software, portal, spreadsheets or any application you prefer.
