The development team - Dr Marcus Baw, GP and Software Developer, and Dr Simon Chapman, Paediatrician, King’s College Hospital NHS FT and South London and the Maudsley Hospitals NHS FT - explain the recently developed API and how it switches the paper charts into a digital format, enabling developers of electronic patient records to build apps and interfaces that will give clinicians solid data to improve care, and parents online access to their child's growth records.
This digital version of growth charts will help parents record and understand information about their child’s growth, securely online on their mobile device. It will also provide children with a digital element of their personal child health record that they can build on throughout their lives.
We'll have more information about our digital growth charts available on this website soon. In the meantime, do have a look at our development portal for the APIs, including links to our documentation. If you have any questions about the project, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
