Testing HiX with 1,300 changes per month. How to do it?

June 29, 2018

On Tuesday, June 26, Testersuite organized the webinar "Better care through better testing" in cooperation with the Jeroen Bosch Hospital. In this webinar, JBZ shared experiences with professionalizing the testing process. The reason for this was the implementation of the new EHR in November 2017 and the testing of HiX.

Testing HiX

For several participants in the Webinar "Better Care Through Better Testing," it was a surprise. As many as 1,300 changes every 4 weeks brings with it JBZ 's new EHR. Testing HiX posed quite a challenge that JBZ cut its teeth on.

Process owners

With a "hotfix (completely new release)" every two weeks and a content update every four weeks, JBZ faced a challenge. How do you go about organizing this? Is a test management tool desirable and how do you set this up? These questions were the start for the JBZ to take the testing process to a mature level. The first step the JBZ took in this was to look at the business processes. Then process owners (at the senior management level) were appointed and teams were formed. In addition to the process owners (sometimes several per team), administrators, super users and key users were assigned to the teams. With a fixed frequency of every four weeks, the process owners meeting was then introduced to make decisions.

Efficient testing

Not all monthly 1,300 changes are equally important. Based on release notes, the JBZ determines through impact analysis which changes need to be tested. On average, half of the changes must be tested. This is already a major efficiency gain. Another measure taken by JBZ is the use of the test management tool Testersuite. With this tool, JBZ keeps a grip on its testing process, builds regression test sets and documents the processes and defects . It also secures the evidence in the context of audits and compliancy.
