Data Access

There are multiple ways of accessing the data, either from a web browser, from within PhenoTips code, or from other applications/scripts. However, the least recommended way of accessing it is directly from the database.

The JSON representation of Patient Records

Patient recorod JSON format is documented in the Dev guide: JSONExport.

The PhenoTips REST API

Introduced in version 1.2 Milestone 5, this is the preferred way of accessing data from other applications. Documentation can be accessed here: API.
