5.24.2023 - Demographics status now available in Premier API v3; Essentials API bug fixes

Premier API

We have added a Demographics status message to the response of the Premier API v3. This field will describe whether an organization has shared information about their organizational demographics with Candid.

The demographics_status field will be available in the "summary" section of the Premier API, and will have two possible responses:

  • "This organization has provided Candid Demographics data"
  • "This organization has not provided Candid Demographics data"

If the organization has provided demographics data, it can be accessed in the "demographics" section of the Premier API. If the organization has not provided demographics data, the "demographics" section will be null. More information about organizational demographics data can be found in our user guide.
