Healthcare Natural Language API pricing

The Healthcare Natural Language API provides a set of features for extracting healthcare information from medical text. You pay only for the features you use with no upfront commitments. The API supports the following features:

Feature type Description
Entity analysis Analyze healthcare entities in text. The response includes the recognized entity mentions and the relationships between them. Each entity is linked to a standard medical vocabulary.
If you pay in a currency other than USD, the prices listed in your currency on Cloud Platform SKUs apply.

Pricing text records

Your usage of the Healthcare Natural Language API is calculated in terms of text records. A text record contains 1,000 characters. Characters are Unicode characters (including whitespace characters and any markup characters such as HTML or XML tags).

Text records are billed in 0.1 text record increments, or units. For example, if you send a request containing 800 characters, you will be charged for 0.8 text records. The total cost would be $0.08, calculated as follows: 0.8 * $0.10.

If the number of characters in a request is not a multiple of 100, the character count is rounded upwards to the next increment of 100.

The following table shows an example of the pricing for three requests sent to the Healthcare Natural Language API. The requests contain 800, 1,500, and 600 characters.

  Number of characters Text record units Price
Request 1 800 0.8 $0.08
Request 2 1,500 1.5 $0.15
Request 3 625 0.7 $0.07
Total 2,925 3.0 $0.30

Healthcare Natural Language API costs are calculated each month based on which features you used and how many text records were evaluated using those features. The table below provides the price per 1 text record during a billing month. The first 2,500 text records are free.
