Abstract

Software has become ubiquitous in healthcare applications, as is evident from its prevalent use for controlling medical devices, maintaining electronic patient health data, and enabling healthcare information technology (HIT) systems. As the software functionality becomes more intricate, concerns arise regarding quality, safety and testing effort. It thus becomes imperative to adopt an approach or methodology based on best engineering practices to ensure that the testing effort is affordable. Automation in testing software can increase product quality, leading to lower field service, product support and liability cost. It can provide types of testing that simply cannot be performed by people.
