jquery datatable reload new data from ajax call

During page load I display a datatable with data called from ajax referencing a webmethod
An action is performed on a selected item and then another ajax call updates the sql table where the main table data
is displayed.
I'm looking to refresh the datatable with the newest data during a close action
ajax.reload() not working me

Help please!!

This is the function I'm calling during my close on click event

function RefreshIBKHealth(region) {
        var report = 1;
        var machine = null;
        var userid = null;
        var parameters = "{'report':'" + report + "','region':'" + region + "','machine':'" + machine + "','userid':'" + userid + "'}";
        var myTable = $('#GlobalIBKHealthAMRS').DataTable({
