Webhooks are a way for you to subscribe to important events happening throughout DaisyBill. These notifications take the form of an HTTP POST request to your application and include information about the event.
This provides you with an alternative to polling endpoints. For example, instead of continuously polling the patients endpoint to find out if a new patient was created, you can instead subscribe to the patient.created event and be notified when it happens.
Webhooks can be set up in conjunction with the DaisyBill API, or on their own. Webhooks must be set up from within the DaisyBill Interface.
