Prevention TaskForce API

Overview

The Prevention TaskForce is an application designed to help primary care clinicians identify the screening, counseling, and preventive medication services that are appropriate for their patients. The Prevention TaskForce API utilizes a Representational State Transfer (REST) architecture to return USPSTF Recommendations data over http from the USPSTF Prevention TaskForce server that can be integrated into other third-party web and mobile applications. The data requested via the API is retrieved by specific patient characteristics, such as age, sex, and selected behavioral risk factors and structured with JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) to provide Prevention TaskForce data in a lightweight, text-based, and human-readable format.
