The looming ICD-10 deadline is a focus for many testing professionals in healthcare, but QA teams at provider, payor and pharma organizations have other major priorities to plan for as well.
Want to know what's hot? Join us at 1 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, Feb. 3 to discover the Top 10 Trends in Healthcare QA and Testing for 2015. Our Chief Quality Officer Mike Cooper will present industry data and case studies outlining top trends including:
- ICD-10 testing and other compliance-driven initiatives
- Testing for mobile applications and devices
- Utilization of cloud environments for development and testing
- Independent validation of EMRs and other business critical applications
- Investment in test automation and other QA technologies
Mike is an acknowledged authority on software quality and testing, with 15-plus years of industry experience in QAT. He joined Healthcare IT Leaders from HP Software, where he was the Software Quality and Testing Evangelist, representing the company with thought leadership on topics including agile testing, test automation and testing centers of excellence.
“Every healthcare organization is different,” says Cooper. “The testing needs of a large pharmaceutical or life sciences company may not mirror those of a health insurer or an integrated delivery network. Each has their own specialized software and faces different regulatory challenges.
“Having said that, there is commonality in the QA priorities of all healthcare companies. All companies have security concerns, all companies have mobile device and cloud testing challenges, and all testers—regardless of industry—are trying to figure out how to increase efficiency and use automation where possible.”
In addition to unveiling his top 10 trend list, Mike will take questions from attendees and offer practical advice and best practices for healthcare QAT professionals and organizations.
