The global healthcare IT market is expected to reach USD 223.16 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 13.7% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023 (Meticulous Research).
Healthcare is a huge market that continues to grow at a fast pace and represents a major opportunity for software testing and integration firms. This is especially true for GenRocket partners because the test data requirements for healthcare are particularly challenging.
The reason is the requirement for test data that complies with the HL7 format. HL7 is an international data interchange standard and the primary method for sharing data among clinical and non-clinical healthcare applications such as:
- Patient registration, tracking and scheduling applications
- Radiology, surgery, laboratory and pharmacy management
- Medical records, billing, purchasing and payroll systems
- Any application related to in-patient or outpatient services
HL7 is a complex data format that defines the structure and the encoding standards for all message types, segment separators, and field delimiters allowing healthcare applications to efficiently communicate using a common data format. Here is a sample of HL7 data:
Additionally, the healthcare industry mandates strict patient privacy and data security protocols restricting the use of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Our support for the HL7 data format combined with the ability to generate 100% secure, synthetic test data makes GenRocket a perfect match for healthcare software testing environments.
