Symptom Checker API

Your organization may wish to license our Symptom Checker content for use within existing software, mobile apps or portal applications.  For these scenarios, we have created an application programming interface (API) and corresponding developer portal.

The Symptom Checker API is a restful web service allowing licensed clients to interface with Self Care Decision’s Symptom Checker content.  The Symptom Checker API returns a JSON response for each index and each topic.

Self Care’s Symptom Checker developer portal is available to manage your API keys and access resources for developing your own symptom checker applications.  The resources include:

  • Current, complete documentation of the API
  • A sample, client-side web application for use as a development reference
  • User story describing how client applications typically consume our content
  • Tools for generating valid requests and inspecting response objects
  • Tools for monitoring API usage
