Situation

The client is one of the fastest growing providers of digital healthcare services and solutions. The organization was experiencing significant growth and demand for its Electronic Health Record Management, Revenue Cycle Management, Healthcare Practice Management, and Telemedicine Service, requiring quick and continuous development and deployment of its technology solutions.

Additionally, due to a considerably high volume of telemedicine usage, the healthcare applications required maximum performance, reliability, and scalability, necessitating continuous development, testing, and deployment of the client’s on-premise and cloud applications. This continuous process improvement could only be possible with reliable testing processes and tools in place. The client sought to:

  • Improve performance and load testing coverage for EMR application areas;
  • Implement failover and recovery testing per regulations;
  • Gain real-time insights and a complete audit trail of performance and load testing metrics, execution results, and issues;
  • Enable continuous performance and load testing as part of its CI/CD pipeline and for upgrade patch validations.
