Yesterday I taught our web-based Corepoint Integration Engine Level 1  training course, which is our introductory class to the engine. Upon completion of this course, participants are able to create, test, deploy, monitor, and troubleshoot interfaces within their healthcare environment.
During each class I like to break things up by asking poll questions or random discussion topics. Doing so allows me to check the pulse on attendees, which gives me an idea if everyone is following along with the pace of the class and get everyone focused again. The change in pace also gives participants the opportunity to ask questions.
Because many attendees in yesterday’s class had used other interface engines (attendees in this class were converting from six different interface engines), I asked what their impressions were of our product after spending some time learning the basics. Here’s how they replied in the chat window (names have been removed):
Attendee 1: 11:56 AM: I have to say this is a very impressive application. The UI is well thought out and easy to use.
Attendee 1: 11:56 AM: Can't wait to convert some interfaces.
Attendee 2: 11:56 AM: much better than Mirth
Attendee 3: 11:56 AM: Different. I'm used to writing code for logic
Attendee 1: 11:56 AM: Corepoint configuration is more simple up front than our legacy engine.
Attendee 4: 11:57 AM: There is a lot more point and click than most of the other engines I've worked with
Attendee 4: 11:57 AM: not bad, just different!
Attendee 5: 11:57 AM: Some things look much better.
Attendee 6: 11:57 AM: A lot is much easier/faster compared to other engines.
Attendee 3: 11:57 AM: not writing code means you're not troubleshooting, looking for your missing semi colon
Attendee 7: 11:58 AM: I'm glad to never use TCL again.
It’s always good to hear firsthand reviews of how Corepoint Integration Engine  stacks up to our competitors. Learning the complexities of a new engine can be daunting, especially if it is the first engine an individual has seen. As crazy as it sounds, we try to make interfacing and interoperability fun…. And, to be honest, anything is more fun than spending hours digging through code looking for one pesky semi colon!
