Internal ICD-10 Testing

There are many challenges and risks involved in ICD-10 transformation across the healthcare spectrum, including providers, payers, clearinghouses, and vendors. QualiTest’s ICD-10 testing services include testing the inter-operability of internal applications and interfaces between system components.

QualiTest offers a holistic testing approach which provides an end-to-end test at a fraction of the cost compared to current market approaches. QualiTest understands the challenges and risks involved in ICD-10 transformation across the healthcare spectrum, including providers, payers, clearinghouses, and vendors. Our comprehensive approach encompasses both internal and external testing, another way we dramatically reduce costs.

QualiTest’s ICD-10 testing services include testing the interoperability of internal applications and interfaces between system components. Our automation accelerators will accelerate the testing cycle by automating large volumes of test data entry from Golden Dataset into HIM systems.

What makes our ICD-10 testing approach unique?

Service delivery includes the use of a comprehensive dual coded (ICD-9 and ICD-10) clinical database. The ICD 10 data used for testing is NOT based on crosswalks or GEMs and is therefore known to be correct. It also includes the use of automated accelerators for injecting large volumes of ICD-9 and ICD-10 clinical/claims data directly into provider and payer systems.

What You Get
QualiTest was engaged by the Florida Hospital Quality Assurance department to assist in creating a test automation solution for a new registration system we are implementing. QualiTest assisted by developing an automation framework to script, execute, provide source control and integration with our Quality Assurance tracking tools. I found them to be highly qualified, flexible and provided great value. I would recommend them to anyone looking for assistance in test automation.
