QualiTest’s ICD-10 testing specialists have developed test automation accelerators for data entry and data verification. By automatically entering large amounts of dual coded data through various systems and programs, QualiTest can efficiently conduct revenue impact testing as well as both internal and external IT testing. To aid in this, QualiTest established the Healthcare Test Acceleration Labs, physical test labs where various accelerators are developed and used, manned by test engineers who are experienced in a wide variety of systems and who can implement solutions for clients’ unique needs and concerns.
QualiTest’s HTAL (Healthcare Test Acceleration Labs) combine high end professionals, leading automation software, and proven methodologies to provide support for your ICD-10 testing effort. Our testing experts and test engineers all work together from one central location to compile knowledge bases for each of the major EHR/EMR systems, such as Cerner, Epic, MediTech, McKesson and others. Clients have the opportunity to tap into the experience and know-how our testing professionals can share over many different platforms, directly benefitting organizations of any size. At the same time, the test accelerators, a turnkey solution that’s ready whenever they are, allows them to increase the efficiency of their data entry and testing process.
Our approach utilizes automation accelerators to enter information from our Golden Dataset into all relevant healthcare systems, as well as to access and verify all data. This allows testers to investigate fewer potential issues manually, virtually eliminating human error and costly false negatives. The use of test automation accelerators is the only way to enable real end-to end testing at a reasonable cost. Automated test acceleration has proven to be 5-6 times faster than manual testing alone; testing which previously took almost half a year can now be completed within 1 month by using test automation. This provides positive ROI much sooner, saving both providers and payers time and money, with the added benefit of creating a much more efficient, reliable system in general.
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.
