For a while now, what gets me up and out of bed each morning is a new and very different way of thinking about software and technology: the application network. Before I get into the why, let’s start with the what. What are application networks?

Transforming from a CoE to a C4E

It’s a common scenario in many businesses – every function in the organization wants to add a mobile app or a new SaaS application and they all rely on IT to deliver.

APIs are often considered the “invisible warriors of healthcare.” And as our founder Ross Mason points out in TechBeacon, there are lots of examples of how APIs are transforming healthcare. But could APIs push healthcare innovation even further?

Big strides have been made already. UCSF has rolled out the CareWeb Messenger engagement platform, which allows healthcare professionals and patients to securely communicate online and on mobile devices in real time through APIs.
