The medical IT industry that iNTERFACEWARE serves is extremely dynamic. HL7 and other data interchange standards continue to evolve while technical innovation drives rapid change in the medical applications and devices our customers manufacture or use. Moreover, the databases, networks, hardware and operating systems on which these medical applications run are themselves subject to a constant release of upgrades and patches.
Because iNTERFACEWARE's Chameleon product is 'middleware', compatibility with our customers' applications and platforms is crucial. To ensure that our tools are up to the challenge, iNTERFACEWARE long ago implemented a robust upgrade and update strategy for its products.
We understand that there needs to be a balance between providing state-of-the-art integration software, while still continuing to support prior software releases for a reasonable period of time.
As a valued customer, we want to work with you as you upgrade and maintain your own software, networks and platforms, ensuring that the time, effort and funds you have invested in procuring and deploying these assets is prudently protected.
