MAKE was an Invaluable Asset
MAKE Solutions was an invaluable asset for our IT leadership team during our EHR implementation. [The team’s] knowledge and expertise are outstanding. They are great collaborators and leaders. The testing team was extremely helpful in working with our team to create a comprehensive testing plan, which reduced our overall testing time and improved the quality assurance of our build prior to implementation. We were able to identify and correct many issues prior to go-live by utilizing this testing plan.
TransIT Reduced the Time & Effort to Test
There are two fundamental things needed to reduce the burden to IT: one is a Help Desk, and the other is a testing tool. We chose TransIT as our testing tool. The burden an EHR puts on analysts for testing is significant; there are upgrades, patches, new domains, and packages coming out that need to constantly be tested. We’ve seen a big benefit from TransIT in reducing the time and effort it takes to test.
TransIT Has Been a Great Success
TransIT has been a great success at our site across three rounds of integrated testing and ongoing testing prior to go-live. After a couple of days of training and a few days to set up the environment, the team was ready to build test scripts in TransIT.
TransIT is Ingrained in Our Processes
We have been very satisfied with the ease of use of TransIT, the tools it provides for managing a large-scale test event, and the ease of reporting on errors and issues found during testing. TransIT has become an ingrained part of our process and we are expanding its use to include the test scripts for our STAR financial system, so we can use it with our next STAR upgrade in addition to continued Cerner projects.
Our Most Successful Round of Testing Ever
Using TransIT, we uploaded our existing 34 integration test scripts from our recent upgrade, modified them to reflect workflow uplifts, added an additional 40+ scripts for the 2 additional facilities, and trained 200+ clinical and revenue cycle testers in the new tool. All within our aggressive 6-week timeline.
Over the next three weeks of testing, WE COMPLETED OUR MOST SUCCESSFUL ROUND OF INTEGRATION TESTING EVER. We ran just over 80 test scripts. The tool provided us the unprecedented capability to coordinate the efforts of 200 people on 45 teams, provide visibility into how test scripts are progressing, support rapid script hand-offs between teams with the flexibility of resources to work from anywhere, traceability of EMR system issues tied directly to test steps and the ability to update almost 700+ script corrections and revisions. In post-testing survey results, over 96% of McLaren respondents recommended the use of TransIT in future integration testing.
We just scratched the surface of TransIT’s potential value to McLaren. We are planning extensive workflow testing and future test automation. TRANSIT WILL BE A STRATEGIC TOOL for ensuring our solutions meet the needs of our physicians, clinicians, and business associates.
