The Health Indicators Warehouse provides access to the underlying data through the use of an Application Programming Interface (API) which is designed to present information to systems with disparate architectures and technologies.
The Health Indicators Warehouse API exposes two distinct web services; a RESTful service and a SOAP-based service to provide access to the data. The methods required to access the underlying services are documented in the Service Methods and Service Types pages.
The current service version is 5; to view changes present in this version of the services, please view the service changes.
For information regarding the relationships between the objects which make up the HIW data-model, please see the following documents:
Users can access the REST-based web services through the following URL: http://services.healthindicators.gov/v4/REST.svc
Users can access the SOAP-based web services through the following URL: http://services.healthindicators.gov/v4/SOAP.svc
Users will be able to obtain metadata by going directly to the Web Service Definition Language (WSDL): http://services.healthindicators.gov/v4/SOAP.svc?wsdl
The Health Indicators Warehouse API lets you programmatically access over 1,000 indicators from multiple datasets. The data can be queried in multiple ways by using the service methods documented on the Service Methods and Service Types pages. The data which is accessible via the HIW services can be used to develop diverse applications.
