Open APIs for building your own Deferred Payment Agreement (DPA) Calculator
We have developed 2 kinds of DPA calculator APIs under Open License, which are free for reuse. 2 APIs perform different parts of the calculation, and the other collects feedback.
Councils and organisations who use these on their sites will still need to develop a user interface for the calculator.
To use any of the calculator APIs, you must also agree to implement the feedback API (API 3).
We’ve split the calculator software into 2 APIs to give you more flexibility in how you integrate the tool into your care information service.
Open API 1 – Central Government rules and parameters for DPA eligibility
Open API 2 – This 'packaged' API takes eligibility input, performs eligibility calculation and returns instant results.
Open API 3 – Warehouse input to collect anonymised statistics for Open reporting purposes
Documentation on what these APIs do and the inputs required for the warehouse is available via the above API links by clicking on the ‘show/ hide’ menu link. Support on this API and the keys to access the APIs is available from firstname.lastname@example.org.
For examples of how these APIs could be used as calculator forms, please visit the DPA Calculator microsite.
