Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 03, 2012
AEGIS.net, Inc. (AEGIS), leading provider of Health IT systems and services, announced today their participation in the 2012 mHealth Summit beginning Monday, December 3 through December 5, 2012 at National Harbor, Maryland (Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center). Mario Hyland, Founder and Senior Vice President, and AEGIS staff will be exhibiting its Interoperability and Testing services in addition to the other Corporate Capabilities of the organization. In the exhibit hall, AEGIS will present the Developers Integration Lab (DIL) testing solution for health information exchange gateway, interoperability, and compatibility testing. The AEGIS DIL offers automated Test Driven Development (TDD) and Compliance Testing services through an Open Source Program. Its backbone is the cloud based infrastructure which consists of over 250 gateways (servers) that supports this open source program. The DIL is a 24/7 testing environment that facilitates interoperability testing and helps organizations meet Meaningful Use standards. The DIL supports test cases (both positive and negative) for web services and message based enterprise solutions.
AEGIS designed and developed the DIL, allowing an organization to test communications between its gateway and other reference gateway implementations at any time. The DIL enables integrated Agile teams where developers and testers work alongside each other to ensure higher quality software is delivered with each sprint. The DIL was created with an eye towards automation and ease of use, providing a straightforward user interface that healthcare organizations can easily navigate. Within minutes, an organization can register on the DIL, install certificates, and begin interoperability testing. The DIL will provide support for the quality of care received by US citizens by helping organizations meet Meaningful Use requirements and facilitating the secure exchange of health information.
Gartner recently identified the Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2013. Number nine on that list is Integrated Ecosystems. As an Integrated Testing Lab, the DIL helps health information systems ensure that their interoperability will support testing requirements for Meaningful Use (MU) Stage #1 and #2, and future Stages #3 thru #5. This is vital for certification and compliance demonstrations, but it can also be leveraged on an ongoing basis to validate the continuous interoperability of health information exchange partners.
Specific approaches which can mitigate risk of interoperability issues in production include industry participation at the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) North America Connectathon 2013 where vendors each year test systems in a peer-to-peer environment. AEGIS will be testing advancements of the DIL with other vendors and healthcare organizations at the upcoming IHE Connectathon in Chicago, IL from January 28 - February 2, 2013.
