Performance Testing a Healthcare Application with HL7 and JMeter.

As a company specialized in software testing, we engage in different software testing projects across different application domains regularly. In this blog post we will be sharing the experience we gathered in performance testing an Enterprise level healthcare application using JMeter and other open-source tools during early 2013. The application we were tasked to test.

In this blog post we will be sharing the experience we gathered in performance testing an Enterprise level healthcare application using JMeter and other open-source tools during early 2013.

The application we were tasked to test was an ICU (Intensive Care Unit) dashboard which helps the doctors to monitor patient’s health status. For example, let’s say a patient is connected to a Heart Rate monitor, the dashboard will get this data from the device and display in the dashboard as a chart in real-time. Likewise, a single patient can be connected to multiple device and all these devices will be pumping data in to the dashboard. The difference of this to a normal application is that all these data is coming in HL7 messages. So our task was to simulate these real devices and measure the performance of the application under an anticipated load.
