Getting Started

Welcome aboard! You can sign up for a new account at https://dashboard.redoxengine.com/#/signup

You’ll be asked to create a new “organization” record to associate with your account upon sign up.

Organizations

Every new user must create or join an organization.

An organization allows multiple Dashboard users to work on and view integrations together. Typically, a Redox customer or company that integrates via Redox will be represented by a single organization within the Redox Dashboard.

If you’re just here to check things out, no worries, you can edit your organization information and/or join a new organization later.

User Management

You can invite other users to your organization on the “Manage Users” menu item in the top right corner of the page. There are two elevated user permissions within an organization:

  • Organization Owner – these users have full administrative privileges and can adjust permissions of other users
  • PHI Access – these users are allowed to view production data payloads within the Dashboard that contain PHI

Any users that you invite from this page will be added without any elevated privileges to start. These users receive an email from Redox with an invitation link and must either login or create an account to accept.


Dev Tools

Once you’re logged in and are part of an organization, you can simulate sending or receiving requests via Redox Dev Tools and view the results within the Dashboard. You might find it useful to quickly read through Sources, Destinations, and Subscriptions at this time as well.

Sending Requests via Redox

You can simulate sending requests via Redox by sending test requests to a mock EMR within “Redox Health System” and reviewing these requests in the Dashboard.

To do so, navigate to the Sources page via the left navigation pane. Here, you’ll see a default Redox API Endpoint source that has been created for you. Within that source, you’ll see two DevTools tabs:

  • DevTools (Curl) – generates example curl command requests for each data model that you can send via your local machine
  • DevTools (Postman) – contains download links to set up example requests in the common, third-party tool Postman

You can use either to option to generate and send test requests to Redox and view the results.

Additional details related to source requests can be found here: Initiating Requests (Source)

Receiving Requests via Redox

Similarly, you can simulate receiving data by initiating test requests to an external endpoint via the Dashboard.

To do so, navigate to the Destinations page via the left navigation pane. Here, you’ll see a default Redox API Endpoint destination that has been created for you. Within that destination, you’ll see a DevTools tab where you can generate test requests and send them to this destination.

By default, test requests are sent to a dummy endpoint. To use your own endpoint, you’ll need to verify it by following the instructions detailed in Processing Requests (Destination)


Next Steps

With either of the methods described above, you’ll be up and running and sending example requests in no time.

From here, we encourage you to continue to read the platform documentation on this site, starting by learning all of the Core Concepts so you know your way around the Dashboard, get a feel for how integrations with Redox work, and understand the types of data you can exchange.

After that, we have full technical documentation on the Redox JSON API that details how to integrate with Redox, so you can take a step beyond the dev tools requsts above and start working within your own system or application.
