"The depth of testing is far greater than what my team and I could perform in the same amount of time….between the Functional and Transactional Testing, STS replaced nearly 3100 hours of estimated manual testing over the project period of 15 weeks - that's the same as just over 5 FTEs devoted solely to testing. There is no way we could have done that without STS's software."
Today's clinical laboratories are constantly challenged to maintain or even improve productivity even when faced with staff shortages and increasing workloads. Sophisticated laboratory information (LIS) and middleware systems are tools that labs can use to help boost productivity but they create another problem: system application testing.
System testing is a tedious and time consuming process (sometimes hundreds of hours!) that includes implementing new software or capabilities, testing the set-up and workflow, and then reviewing the testing results to verify that the software meets both the patient care and business needs of the organization. Often the lab system upgrades are a critical step in a larger enterprise project such as an EMR upgrade. Project delays can be costly and affect the entire enterprise!
LIS and middleware system projects often require pulling key personnel away from patient care tasks to perform testing. Alternative solutions may lead to budgetary repercussions when "backfilling" bench positions with per diem technologists or hiring pricey consultants to conduct the testing. And, if testing is performed by IT staff not familiar with the laboratory workflow, the enterprise risks an incomplete process.
Fortunately, Software Testing Solutions (STS) has a comprehensive suite of automated lab software testing solutions that you can use to assure the testing is up to your standards.
