1. Results
  2. Result Formats

Vital’s API returns results in a number of different formats. We currently support:

  • PDF
  • JSON
  • HL7

PDF Results

We return the raw results in PDF form, that we receive directly from our partner labs. This can be retrieved as follows:

Get order results PDF
curl --request GET \
     --url {{BASE_URL}}/v3/order/result/pdf \
     --header 'Accept: application/json' \
     --header 'Content-Type: application/pdf' \
     --header 'x-vital-api-key: <your_api_key>' \

An example result:

JSON Results

We also return the parsed results in JSON format, so you can use them to generate your own forms. For example for a lipids panel:

Get order json results
curl --request GET \
     --url {{BASE_URL}}/v3/order/result \
     --header 'Accept: application/json' \
     --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
     --header 'x-vital-api-key: <your_api_key>' \
