Both parts of the API are _**functionally the same**_. This means that much of the documentation that you find here will apply to both, including:
User Authentication with [Human Connect](🔗)
Data API [Retrieval Patterns](🔗)
Keeping data in sync with [Notifications](🔗)
Additionally, all data from Human API is encrypted both while in transit and at rest. See the [Security](🔗) for more information.
# Data Availability
The main difference between each type of data is where the data comes from. **Wellness** data often comes directly from wearable devices or apps maintained by the end-user as detailed on the [Data Network](🔗) , whereas **Medical** data comes directly from thousands of disparate healthcare providers and clinics.
As a result, there are some best practices and design considerations to be made for each as detailed on the [Data Availability and Design](🔗) page.
# Accessing Either Data Type
If you are interested in adding functionality of either data type to your account, email us at [[email protected]](🔗).
