AEGIS will be represented by Mario Hyland, Senior Vice President & Founder at the Symposium. He plans to present our unique and innovative approach to testing as a catalyst to helping ensure “continuous” interoperability. Mr. Hyland’s presentation will focus on the benefits from the return on investment (ROI) many organizations are realizing through coupling of cloud-based Infrastructures (IaaS) and Testing Services (TaaS) in a true Shared Services model. Attendees will learn more about effective testing for interoperability and standard conformance in an information sharing environment. Mr. Hyland will discuss a recent and industry recognized Gartner article that mentions AEGIS: Robust Testing is Required for Reliable Healthcare Interoperability. This article notes healthcare delivery organizations are evolving to meet new market demands and require that their IT systems interoperate more effectively than ever before.

Plan to attend and share this innovative testing approach with your leadership, technical staff and colleagues!
