Registration for joint testing

Registration for joint testing

When registering for joint testing, the system supplier must send the THL’s system form. The system form and further information about certification are available on the certification page (form: functional requirements section, Appendix 4 (xls)).

The joint testing periods for the joint testing of the Prescription service, the Patient Data Repository and the client data archive for social welfare services are available in the publication plan (pdf, in Finnish).

Joint testing of prescription system

In addition to joint testing for the publication plan, joint testing aiming for the first certification is organised for the systems that have not yet taken part in joint testing for the Prescription service.

Registrations are requested to be sent at least two months before the planned joint testing period at the latest by sending an email to yhteistestaus@kanta.fi.

Joint testing of the Patient Data Repository

Joint testing of the Patient Data Repository will be carried out in 2017 in accordance with the publication plan (pdf). Furthermore, when necessary, testing of contents of the introduction phase 1 will also be carried out on systems that have not yet taken part in the joint testing of the Patient Data Repository.

Cases of use included in the requirements of joint testing and the purpose of use of the patient information system shall be implemented and tested by the supplier before the start of the joint testing period. After registration, the deadline by which the information system manufacturer must report the tests on the joint testing preparedness and further information to the Kanta services will be agreed on.

Registrations are requested to be sent at least two months before the planned joint testing period at the latest by sending an email to yhteistestaus@kanta.fi.

In the document ‘Joint testing of the contents of the Patient Data Repository’ (xls), are described the contents of the Patient Data Repository that are to be jointly tested, the scope of the testing and the testing stages. The document also describes the dependencies between the different kinds of contents and provides tips on how to facilitate the creation of contents for the Patient Data Repository as well as the planning of joint testing of them. The test cases cover a range of basic test sets for each content. Before the joint testing is started, Kela will in cooperation with the system supplier identify the user profile(s) needed for the joint testing of the patient data system and other data necessary for the testing. This ensures that the test content is comprehensive and focuses on the right aspects.
