Software Quality Challenges in Healthcare Systems – OMG (Boston, MA USA)

June 18, 2014

Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) in Healthcare Summit. Wednesday, June 18, 2014, Boston, MA


The OMG Technical Meeting provides IT architects, business analysts, government experts, vendors and end-users a neutral forum to discuss, develop and adopt standards that enable software interoperability for a wide range of industries.


On Wednesday, June 18, 2014, Dr. Bill Curtis will be hosting a session on Software Quality Challenges in Healthcare Systems. Here is the abstract:


The recent debacle highlighted the challenges of software quality in healthcare systems. However, these challenges extend far beyond badly managed government projects. Healthcare has lagged other industry segments in adopting recent advances for improving software quality, such as continuous improvement of both process and product. Generally organizations building embedded software for medical devices have been ahead of those building business software for administering medical operations and billing. This talk will review how continuous process improvement coupled with lean principles has dramatically improved software in other industry segments and will include a short case study from a medical device manufacturer. It will then discuss the more recent focus on the structural quality of software, which cannot be ensured through traditional testing methods. Structural issues related to Reliability, Performance, Security, and Maintainability will be discussed along with the costs and risks they affect.
