athenahealth offers access to Certified APIs free of charge to our customers and partners. This aligns with our belief that an open, collaborative ecosystem drives quality care outcomes and demonstrates our commitment to open data exchange.
Certified APIs are available, as documented within this Developer Portal, on the current live versions of athenaOne, athenaClinicals, athenaCollector, or athenaOne for Hospitals and Health Systems, as applicable. You can find the complete list of Certified APIs under the "List of Certified APIs (in adherence to 2015 Edition CEHRT Criteria)" header here.
The process for obtaining Production access varies by API framework. If you are a personal heath record (PHR) app developer and solely seeking access to Certified APIs, then you may be issued a Production client ID without additional verification from athenahealth by registering a new application in the Developer Console and requesting the Certified APIs that your app requires. See Onboarding Overview for more details.
If you are not a personal health record app developer, you can likewise obtain a Preview client ID on your own by registering your application in the Developer Console; however Production access is by request only. See our Onboarding Overview for more details.
For access beyond Certified APIs, you can sign up for one of our Platform Services offerings.
