Along with the release of Google Health, Google announced the availability of the Google Health Data API.

This API gives developers programmatic access to view and update Health content via AtomPub feeds. Your client application can use the API to create new medical records, request a list of medical records, and query for medical records that match particular criteria.

Here are some of the things you can do:

* Upload patient medical records.
* Get patient medical data and provide personalized functionality based on that data.

The API supports a subset of the CCR. CCR ("Continuity of Care Record") is a format defined by the medical industry, designed to facilitate the transfer of a snapshot of a patient's medical history when that individual moves from one medical provider to another. In the case of Google Health, a partner site can send a patient's CCR to Google. Given the proper user permissions, another partner site can then download that person's CCR. will be developing many applications and services that will integrate with Google Health and make health management even easier for people.
