Cross Enterprise Document Sharing (XDS) Testing Toolkit

By on March 27, 2014

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a XDS toolkit for testing with various IHE integration profiles. The test facilities are the IHE IT Infrastructure Technical Framework and when used are considered conformance testing against a common reference.

The primary goal of IHE is interoperability testing where implementations are tested against other implementations. Conformance testing always preceeds interoperability testing. Interoperability testing in IHE takes place at IHE Connectathons.

Here are some great HL7 and XDS resources that I found on Amazon…great tools!
