How do you get ‘customer’ data if you are a hospital or a research institute?

You could build a dedicated team for conducting surveys, crawling research papers, and even develop your own IT system for storing and accessing this data. How often would you need to revise this data? Monthly? Quarterly? How comprehensive do you think it would be? 

If you are one of the many medical professionals pressed for time and/or money, the above may not be an easy solution to maintain, and when people’s lives are at stake, there is no room for failure.

Imagine your organization had access to data on infectious diseases from all over the globe, from thousands of patients, across hundreds of countries, updated every day. That would be pretty amazing, right? With GIDEON, it is a click away. We offer your organization access to data on hundreds of diseases, drugs, and bacteria from across the world, dating back to the 1920s – we do the legwork so you can conduct your expert analysis. 

To fully realize the benefits of our comprehensive database, we have developed the GIDEON API so you can leverage a direct feed of continuously updated information between our service and your established processes and tools. The service is now being offered to all our institutional subscribers free of charge.

With a service as broad as GIDEON, we understand that taking on an API integration can be daunting, even for a seasoned IT professional. To help make this invaluable feature more accessible to our customers, we have written extensive guidance detailing every API call, including examples of the output you should expect. You can access the guidance through this link: API

We are confident building a deeper connection between our service and your systems will empower your analytics and reporting capabilities, bringing new insight into your existing and emerging data trends. Please take a peek at our documentation and let us know when you are ready to give it a go!

2020 is going to be an important and exciting year for GIDEON. We look forward to sharing many more enhancements and new service announcements throughout the year.
