Steve Moore

Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology


What s new in 2004

What’s New in 2004?

  • Joint connectathon with

    • Radiology

    • Cardiology

    • IT Infrastructure

  • Some vendors testing for demonstrations

  • Some vendors testing only

Connectathon Test Process


First registration step

First Registration Step

  • Send me an IHE Connectathon Testing Request so we can understand all profiles/options you support

  • This replaces the “Software Registration Form” of past years

  • Please do this by Nov 1

Connectathon Test Process


Repeat customers and repeat tests

Repeat Customers and Repeat Tests

  • Some equipment has been with us for several years

  • Some tests are very simple and should probably be run only once

  • Eric Poiseau and Steve Moore will work on a plan to reduce repetition to give you more time for new features

Connectathon Test Process


The plan for unscheduled testing

The Plan for “Unscheduled” Testing

  • Using the same sessions, participants will be able to arrange tests with “unscheduled” partners

  • We will use a web-based system created for the IHE-Europe 2002 Connectathon

  • Web-based system will give you lists of partners and a mechanism for synchronizing with those partners

Connectathon Test Process


Example of unscheduled testing

Example of “Unscheduled” Testing

  • Modality A is paired to test with Img Mgrs X, Y, Z

  • Mod A uses web tool and finds Img Mgr Y is idle

  • Both Modality A and Image Manager Y indicate on the web system that they are occupied

  • X and Z look for other systems for testing

Connectathon Test Process


The plan for scheduled testing

The Plan for “Scheduled” Testing

  • Week is divided into eight half-day sessions

  • In a session, you are assigned to run a specific set of tests with partners designated by Project Manager

  • For example

    • Wed PM could be ACC demo groups

    • Wed AM could be HIMSS demo groups

    • Wed PM could be Radiology Scheduled Workflow

Connectathon Test Process


Ihe europe web based scheduling tool

IHE-Europe Web-based Scheduling Tool

  • The tool is used

    • During the connectathon

    • During connectathon preparation period.

  • Management of

    • system configuration

    • Mesa log return follow-up

    • Connectathon tests

Connectathon Test Process


System configuration management

System Configuration Management

  • Submit actors and systems supported by system

  • Get :

    • List of transaction to support

    • List of Mesa Tests to perform

Connectathon Test Process


Connectathon test management

Connectathon Test Management

  • List and planning of tests to perform during the week

  • Tracking of tests performed and test verification by Project Managers

    • You can go home with your check list

  • Map of the room (where is your peer located in the room)

  • Test Chat Room

    • Each individual test has a chat room where logs and comment can be stored.

Connectathon Test Process


Test monitors

Test Monitors

  • MIR staff will serve as monitors.

    • We will recruit some additional monitors

  • Monitors will direct individual scheduled test groups

  • For some tests, monitors will come after the fact to review logs

Connectathon Test Process


Connectathon test results

Connectathon Test Results

  • To receive credit for a test (scheduled and unscheduled), MIR staff must verify individual test results.

  • You and your test partner(s) must use system displays/logs to show sufficient evidence that the test completed successfully.

Connectathon Test Process


How many tests are enough

“How Many Tests Are Enough?”

  • Depends on the test and the number of available actors.

  • General rule is three unique instances.

  • Breadth before depth.

  • Score card will be updated at the end of Wed, Thurs.

Connectathon Test Process


Mesa supporting systems

MESA Supporting Systems

  • MWL server.

  • Order entry system.

Connectathon Test Process


I m done can i go home now

“I’m Done. Can I Go Home Now?”

  • Supervised testing will continue until 12:00 on Friday for EVERYONE.

  • All systems must be functioning and staffed.

  • Others may need you in order to complete their tests.

  • Packing up early is too disruptive.

  • Systems beginning to pack early will be FAILED and not listed in the final program.

Connectathon Test Process


Other important rules

Other Important Rules

  • No system will be allowed to add profiles at the Connectathon. (e.g. ARI)

  • Project Management can disqualify a system from further testing and related Integration Profile if the system’s continuation is deemed too disruptive to further testing.

Connectathon Test Process


How can i prepare for connectathon

How Can I Prepare For Connectathon?

  • Submit information to Project Manager on time:

    • Configuration information

    • MESA Test results

  • Read test plan when it is published (Dec)

  • Test with partners in advance if possible

  • Configure your equipment before you ship
