The software under test is the electronic health record (EHR) system.

Currently, the system represents a web application made up of the patient’s and provider’s portals and is expected to perform the following functions:

  • Specified data analysis to provide timely alerts on patient’s condition
  • Implementation of public health syndromic surveillance among large groups of patients
  • Provision of data for reporting as required.

The main objective of the system is to help doctors save time and improve care. All patient’s data (demographics, progress notes, problems, medications, vital signs, past medical history, immunizations, laboratory data) generated by one or more encounters is entered to the personal health record.

The workflow is automated to the maximum. There are speech and medical terminology recognition systems, and smart pens that help streamline the clinician’s workflow.

In the nearest future the patient should be able to report on their health condition. If any data entered appears to go beyond the norm set by the healthcare provider, the system will notify the latter on it.

The system will also allow for making calls and real-time audio and video conferences via various devices: iPads, iPhones, HD Televisions, etc.

The client’s main goal was to pass HIPAA and ONC certification of the IT product.

Furthermore, the customer asked to perform functional testing of the solution. Therefore, a1qa assigned HIPAA-certified engineers to face the challenge.

To ensure full compliance with HIPAA and ONC standards, QA engineers considered the regulations when creating testing plan and strategy.
