While the EMR itself is a critical link in overall patient management, ensuring seamless connectivity across numerous other hospital systems (ERP software, PACS technology, blood bank software) is also important. This means end-to-end testing of software releases, updates, functionality, and performance — not just testing that the code works in one system or another.

One of the challenges in setting up tests with Selenium WebDriver is determining the best locator for an element. Eggplant Functional and SenseTalk provide several ways to locate elements.

Today we are excited to bring you a guest blog post from Dr Greg Law, at UndoTestPlant announced a technology partnership with Undo on August 17, 2016. To read more about the partnership, click here.

The rise of test-driven development, agile methodologies, continuous integration and continuous deployment are transforming how software is created and provided to customers.  Simultaneously, the spread of software into more and more of the devices around us and the interconnectivity of those devices means that the sector is growing in scale, complexity and importance. These factors are having an enormous impact on testing and QA departments. If more software is being produced and needs to be deployed in shorter and shorter timeframes, traditional testing methodologies have to change, hence the rise of automation in the testing process.

(I will also unabashedly share my preoccupation with Pokémon Go.)
