Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) have become increasingly complex while healthcare providers increasingly depend on their reliability and scalability. While features are fairly easy to verify, scalability is challenging to test without a Radiology Environment for testing the server with all the modalities and a RIS. The Virtual Radiology Environment is a simulation system that provides all of the network patterns and data flow that occur natively in the Radiology domain.
A lot has been said about the many challenges of upgrading to ICD-10; in fact, it’s often considered the Y2K of healthcare. This white paper presents a unique approach to leverages a Golden Data Set of dual coded medical and claims records and Test Automation Accelerators, to deliver high quality end-to-end ICD-10 testing
IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television, and is proving to be an interesting new chapter for television. This exciting technology uses DSL to deliver the content to the subscribers and offers new business opportunities to service providers. ADSL2+ and VDSL2 data rates make it possible to easily integrate voice, video, and data services over a single telephone line, commonly denominated triple-play services. With all these technological developments, it is now practical and economical to simultaneously provide multiple standard and high-definition television channels (SDTV and HDTV) to the residential user.
Due to delays in vendor ICD-10-ready product releases and complexities involved with ICD-10 migration, multiple cycles of testing needs to be performed to mitigate risks. Traditionally providers conduct application testing, internal testing, external testing, and revenue impact testing sequentially. This will not allow a sufficient testing window for revenue impact testing resulting in compromising the revenue predictability.
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is a network architecture concept that proposes using IT virtualization related technologies to virtualize entire classes of network node functions into building blocks that may be connected, or chained, together to create communication services.
Imagine the complication of querying the existence of a particular code if you need to consider both ICD-9 and ICD-10 where a one-to-one relationship does not exist.
To understand breaches, it helps to identify and follow them, including how they are reported, misreported, and underreported. Here is an analysis of American data breaches for the first quarter of 2018, with many charts.
