E2E Testing in Healthcare
One of our clients operating in the medical industry has faced over the years multiple challenges with hardware — software integration. The main challenging areas were in incompatibilities between graphic cards and mainboard, graphic cards drivers incompatibility with the software and firmware issues that needed to be validated and verified by doing comprehensive testing of the entire system, following as well regulatory requirements.
We assisted our client by creating test design and test executions based on high level requirements, planning, monitoring and controlling the execution of the tests during the entire lifecycle of the product development.
The aim of test scenarios was to verify that the software installed on production standard devices satisfies the defined specification by covering all functional and non-functional aspects, to ensure its proper operation and compliance with regulatory standards and compliance requirements such as FDA or HIPPA. The test procedures were closed only after the exit criteria were met, the test reports completed and handed over to our client.
Using E2E testing, our team validated the complete workflow of the medical device, simulating real-world scenarios and user interactions. Moreover, it has validated the communication and interoperability between different modules or components of the software medical device, along with the exchange of data, messages, and signals, along with any interfacing with external systems or devices. Besides this, we have focused on verifying the accuracy, integrity, and security of data throughout the entire system by checking data inputs, transformations, storage, retrieval, and processing, ensuring that data is correctly captured, stored, and transmitted between various components and systems.
Both manual and automated testing approaches have been used, with focus in automating the repetitive task by checking for regression bugs using nightly builds, parallel test execution and collecting all results in meaningful test reports.
