DynaMed’s mission is to improve health outcomes worldwide by providing the most useful information to healthcare professionals at the point of care. DynaMed delivers the most current and accurate, evidence-based content for practicing clinicians. Our multidisciplinary team systematically and objectively surveys emergent scientific literature and clinical practice guidelines. Relevant information is captured, appraised, and synthesized rapidly into DynaMed’s clinical content. There are six rounds of updates a day on the site. DynaMed surfaces actionable recommendations, key takeaways, and synopses. It also allows users to dig deep into the underpinning body of knowledge and study details. DynaMed provides users with an easy to use search endpoint which can return articles, sections of articles and images. Complete html content is also included in the results for easy display in your user interface.
To begin, register for an EBSCO developer account. Then, please register your client application. Registering your client application allows you to obtain OAuth 2.0 client credentials that allow your application to access all MedsAPI endpoints for which you have subscribed. After obtaining your client credentials, use your client credentials in your application to request a DynaMed access token. The DynaMed access token is used to access all DynaMed endpoints. These steps are further described in the following sections.
This guide provides a brief overview of the DynaMed core concepts. If you have interacted with a RESTful API before, many of the concepts described here will be familiar to you.
