FAQ: What is the development time for interfaces compared to the point-to-point approach?
Deploying new interfaces to an interface engine environment typically takes hours, not days or months. For an interface, building the data mapping logic and testing takes most hospitals less than four hours.
With point-to-point interfaces, getting in the queue with the various vendors is the first step, and this step alone can take weeks or months to get an interface delivered.
An interface engine delivers more control at the hospital level and enables efficient leverage in deploying interfaces to the environment.
