A number of our clients have recently requested an option to automate the process of adding care enquiries received via their website and other web platforms into CareHQ. Automating the process saves a significant amount of time and prevents the risk of human error when copying care enquiries across manually.
To help with this task, and also to open up new ways to work with CareHQ, we recently launched the CareHQ API (Beta). It's possible to use the API with any programming language, however our SDKs (source development kits) make this a lot easier by handling the authentication and verification parts for you when calling the API.
PHP is a popular programming language that is especially well-suited to web development. Many websites are written in PHP or are managed using a content management system (CMS) written in PHP such as WordPress or Magento.
If you'd like to integrate your website or another application with CareHQ then we recommend initially speaking to one of our developers. We'll work with you and your development team (internal or external) to help you get started.
If your website or application is written in a programming language we don't currently have an SDK for, we'd love to hear from you as we're planning to introduce new SDKs in response to client feedback.
