SnapMD, a telehealth technology vendor, has announced the expansion of its VCMnexus Developer Program with the availability of new open-source software development kits. SnapMD’s SDKs make it easy, the company said, for developers to quickly build new applications using SnapMD’s source code.

SnapMD’s VCMnexus Developer Program is designed to enable developers to leverage the company’s Virtual Care Management technology to build their own integrations and applications quickly and easily. SnapMD’s Virtual Care Management is a cloud-based, white-label telemedicine platform that enables healthcare brands to extend care direct to the consumer under their own brand.

SnapMD Virtual Care Management was developed as an enterprise technology with all of the telemedicine capabilities needed by a wide variety of clinical departments, and to be fully integrated with an existing EHR and other systems within a healthcare organization, the vendor explained.

As health systems continue to expand virtual care options, open APIs present the opportunity to meet healthcare organizations’ demand for unique applications, SnapMD said.

Through VCMnexus, SnapMD offers a comprehensive set of API and SDK libraries to provide integration with third-party systems or development of complementary applications, enabling access to more than 90% of its system functionality, the vendor said. SnapMD’s Virtual Care Management system consumes its own APIs in order to efficiently interact with the core system, ensuring that these APIs are fully functional at all times, SnapMD explained. The advantage this offers to customers is that when they want to integrate SnapMD with their systems, the existing APIs are ready to be used, eliminating the need to develop new ones: As a result, each time the Virtual Care Management platform or third-party systems have an update, the APIs already account for these changes, reducing the time, expense and opportunities for errors to occur, the vendor explained.

“Integration and innovation are essential for digital health to realize its promising future,” said Dave Skibinski, president and CEO of SnapMD. “We believe that collaboration is key to driving the industry forward, and that is why we’ve made 90 percent of our platform accessible via APIs to developers who have the vision and skill to quickly create next-generation applications.”
