The project was to convert a health-based VFP application to .Net framework that had a database with highly confidential patient health information (PHI), adhering to the highest HIPPA compliance standards. We at Macrosoft have smoothly executed a new testing approach for converting/modernizing HIPPA-compliant legacy applications without compromising any of the data risks.
This testing approach zeros in on all the use cases, never exposing any of the actual patient data to anyone outside the client’s secure area. In this case, we used the Solix encryption tool for scrambling data during the testing process.
The business rules contained within the application was very complex, which made the testing process extremely difficult, ruling out discrepancies while validating the solution. We find this unusual testing approach work surprisingly well as we would be extremely glad to repeat it again.
