Why We Won the Best in Healthcare APIs at API World

Wow! Our API was again judged the best in Healthcare by the folks at API World. For the second time in the last 3 years. And, our company also made it into the top 300 innovators – across all categories. It did take a moment for that to sink in. The first time, perhaps a lucky strike. But that’s twice now. There’s no lobbying for those awards, and they had fancy criteria to go by when judging the winner. Clearly, we did well on them.

To us, however, it comes down to just one thing. We let you – our API partners – scale. We understand what you mean when you say, I want to serve all dentists, veterinarians, optometrists, audiologists, oral and orthodontists and maxillofacial surgeons and I don’t want to be limited by the software they use to manage their hospital/practice and record the patient’s medical records. Without us, you would need to connect individually to the different software platforms used by each of the retail healthcare providers. It would be like learning 12 languages that are continuously changing. Actually, about 500 languages. You’d have to speak the language of each individual practice management software in the market. We cut it down to one. That’s what the One in Sikka One API is for. Your code for One API and you open yourself to a vast expanse of the market.
