SAFHIR applications typically function on
behalf of insurance companies (i.e. Payers or Health Plans). SAFHIR applications frequently access
Protected Health Information (PHI). Since these applications access sensitive health information,
on behalf of members, additional precautions are taken when vetting individual developers, companies,
and applications. An application is required to be approved before production API access is granted by a
given individual payer. Access to data then requires an application to be granted specific authorization
by the Health Plan member.
SAFHIR Developer Portal
The SAFHIR Developer Portal manages
developer registration, application registration, application approval, and obtaining
credentials necessary for your application to work in production. The necessary access
credentials are issued on a per payer organization, per application registration basis.
Developer identity verification will be conducted
before granting access to Payer registration processes. Valid contact information, including names,
must be provided when registering.
