WHAT IS API?

Access to real-time data and consistent user experience empowers participants to:
Elevate’s cutting-edge benefit administration technology simplifies systems, boosts efficiency, and cuts costs for providers. Elevate strives to offer the industry’s most intuitive, configurable, and automated administration platform for employers, employees, and their dependents, to maximize the advantages of consumer-directed benefits.
WHY APIS ARE IMPORTANT IN BENEFITS DELIVERY
THE IMPACT OF APIS
Over the past decade, APIs have transformed software development across industries from e-commerce to travel to telecommunications.
An API-first approach to consumer-directed benefits systems enables health plan providers and third-party administrators to assemble benefits into any stack an employer wants—integrated from the user interface to the back end.
Today’s consumer-directed benefits can help employees manage their wellness more successfully than ever before.
A better-integrated, more flexible benefits stack like Elevate can help employees achieve a healthier workforce while getting runaway healthcare expenses under control.
An API-first approach to consumer-directed benefits software development will enable the modern benefits every company needs for the post-COVID world and beyond.
