EHR/EMR Testing Services

EHR/EMR Testing Services

It is complicated for you to ensure that EHR or EMR systems are working as desired, especially with fears of new breaks when upgrades occur.  QualiTest is an expert on dealing with such records through our healthcare and medical devices experience, and we are on the DICOM Standards Committee as ICD-11 is being drafted.

Electronic Health Record (EHR) or Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems are at the center of the Healthcare IT transformation. QualiTest provides a variety of different EHR testing services. Typically, there is a need for functional and interoperability testing of EHR systems. Other testing such as Performance Testing, Security Testing, and possibly Meaningful Use Testing and ICD-10 Testing may also be required.

Deliverables of an EHR Test

The result of the EHR testing effort will include:

  • Validation of the System Functionality of the EHR Systems
  • Verification That These New Systems Deliver Complete and Accurate Coverage of All Universal and Specific Requirements
  • Validation that the New EHR Systems Meet the User’s Needs and Expectations

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.

The first step is the preparation a Master Test Plan (MTP) that will:

  • Establish Test Objectives
  • Develop an Understanding of the Users and Stakeholders of the New Systems
  • Determine Test Scope and Required Completion Dates
  • Formulate Test Requirements
  • Define Test Types
    • Functional: Unit, Sub-System and System
    • Website and Mobile Device Compatibility
    • Interoperability: Clearinghouses, Labs, Imaging, Pharmacies etc
    • Performance
    • Security
    • Usability
  • Determine Test Methodology for Each Test Type
  • Recommend  Testing Tools
  • Plan for Test Environment and Test Data
  • Establish a Plan for the Provision of Test Data
  • Document Test Resources Required to Accomplish Goals
  • Present a Testing Timeline

EHR Testing and EMR Testing Types

Once the MTP has been approved the QualiTest team will begin testing. Testing will include many of the following:

  • Functional Gap Analysis Between Current Processes and Expected New Processes
  • Data Migration and Master Data Development
  • Sub System Testing
  • Integration Testing
  • User Acceptance Testing
  • Regression Testing
  • Performance Testing
  • Usability Testing
