Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina has developed clear Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) to allow members to share their data with registered applications. Developers can register for access here and find the resources they need to build APIs to a member’s health data or to information on Blue Cross NC’s provider network, or both. Potential APIs can be tested in the Sandbox before registration.
