SAN DIEGO – Dexcom has made its application programming interface public, enabling third-party developers to connect some patient-authorized continuous glucose monitoring data into software applications. “Dexcom believes in data mobility and customer choice,” said Annika Jimenez, senior vice president of data at Dexcom, in a statement. “It also believes that the API opens up opportunities to drive Dexcom CGM data into the heart of new digital solutions for payers, providers and, most importantly, people with diabetes.” The Dexcom API enables the development of apps and software products that amplify the value and utility of Dexcom CGM, she said. “We understand that choice in diabetes management—beyond just the devices—is important, and we believe that an ecosystem of apps can complement our own product offerings.” The company has also created developer.dexcom to be a single source for learning about and getting help with the Dexcom API, including a data environment for prototyping and consistent support and feedback channels. “Part of the reason for opening up the Dexcom API to the public is to encourage those who have great ideas but need some guidance and support to get rolling,” Jimenez said.
