Standards and Conformance Testing Group

The Standards and Conformance Testing Group develops conformance test suites, tools, methods and prototypes to achieve high-quality, interoperable implementations that conform to standards and meet users' needs. New test generation techniques are also developed. We partner with industry to provide conformance guidance and to develop precise, testable specifications and conformance tests.

Project Areas Include:

  • Conformance test development and products
    Developing conformance test suites, tools, and methods to ensure quality software and conformance to standards; providing guidance and assistance in using these measurements.
  • Conformance Advisory
    Providing guidance on conformance topics, including how to specify conformance and communicate requirements for claiming conformance in specifications, as well as how to develop conformance test suites and tools.
  • Healthcare Systems, eHealth
    Developing standards, tests, tools and prototypes to advance the use of information technologies in healthcare systems and achieve an interconnected electronic health information infrastructure.
  • Test Method Research
    Developing new methods, techniques, and tools to automatically generate tests and improve test coverage.
