Event InformationToday’s system developers and implementers want to ensure their software applications comply with all applicable standards and specifications while being interoperable and functional with other software applications, technology environments and systems supported within the provider environment. While industry wide published standards are commonly used, organizational approaches to testing can vary greatly and impact many areas of a provider’s IT ecosystem. All too often, system testing is done once and set aside, and does not address sustainable interoperability effectiveness. There is a real need to support multiple versions of specifications at the same time to ensure your organization’s systems are both backward compatible and future proof. This concept is a key pillar of "Continuous Interoperability." In this webinar, hear from industry thought leaders on the importance of scaled interoperability, the challenges and issues with sustainable interoperability, effective testing practices and approaches as well as ways an open source solution can successfully support provider activities.
