Vital Signs API

View documentation

ProPublica journalists have spent years collecting, cleaning and analyzing millions of data points about hundreds of thousands of doctors and other health professionals across several different interactive databases. The Vital Signs API provides developers with structured access to key data points about the cost and quality of care from all of our data sets. 

The Vital Signs API, which powers the Vital Signs app, includes information on five general areas. 

  • Standing With Federal Health Programs
  • Office Visits and Costs
  • Relationships with Pharmaceutical and Device Companies
  • Prescribing Patterns and Habits
  • Surgical Performance

This API was designed for use by consumer-facing and B2B app developers looking to access quantitative and qualitative data about medical providers.
