AEGIS was engaged to create the Interoperability Test Platform for the Nationwide Health Information Network (NwHIN) under the Dept. of Health and Human Services Office of the National Coordinator (ONC). The NwHIN Interoperability Test Platform allows automated, Internet-based interoperability testing against NwHIN specifications. This test harness, initially developed early in 2010, is the first to test federal partners’ and other private and public entities’ electronic health records interoperability and conformance to stated standards.
Funding for the continuation of these services was awarded to our team headed by Stanley, Inc., and as a result, AEGIS will continue to develop, implement and adapt interoperability tests to ensure eligible candidates can successfully access the NwHIN and obtain an auditable record of their test to verify certification.
