Power of attorney query

Post by jarkkok » Tue Aug 03, 2021 12:42 pm

Do you have plans to provide through the API a way to query alternative contact information for patient (Power of attorney for someone, next of kin...)?

The API offers the Queries POST and Queries PUT ShortQuery methods as a way to obtain information not directly available through other API methods. Emergency contact information is stored in the PatientNote table, more details here: https://www.opendental.com/OpenDentalDo ... atientnote

A new method, PatientNotes GET, now provides this functionality. It returns the patient's ICEName, ICEPhone, and Medical summary note. These fields can also be updated with PatientNotes PUT method, if desired.

More details can be found in our updated documentation https://www.opendental.com/resources/OpenDentalAPI.pdf.
