Regression and Functional Testing of Healthcare Application for High Performance

Business Requirement:

The client needed a fast and effective software testing solution to evaluate the end-to-end system specifications of the application to detect any performance and functionality issues that may arise. Due to the nature of the app it was crucial that no bugs made it to production.


Our QA team examined all the requirements of the client and based on that QA engineers made a checklist to perform a regression testing before the releases. A Mind Map for the app was also compiled. To improve the UI and the app usability for end-users, recommendations on UIs testing were made. During the app testing, different functional changes were recorded in the bug-tracking report. All corrections were presented as comprehensive reports for the client and developers.

The Client:

The client is a leading healthcare platform provider which enables patients to record and understand their healthcare stories. Co-created by doctors, patients, and caregivers, the app helps patients and their families directly record their healthcare conversations, so they can take their doctor’s advice home with them. After the visit is over, the app creates a transcript of medical mentions. The transcript can be used as a way to navigate the audio, and patients can tap on moments they want to replay. They can also share it with family and their care team, to help them stay in the loop.

Challenges Faced:

The QA team was challenged to perform a functional testing and GUI testing to check the application operation. Moreover, the QA engineers had a task to provide recommendations on how to improve the prominent features of the app. As the healthcare app required frequent interaction between patients and doctor, a chat box was created for effective mode of communication. Major attention was given to audio and video calls testing. This was one of the most important and time-consuming parts of the project. Security test was performed in accordance with the requirements.

Our Approach:

We wrote test cases for every module of the application to determine whether they are fit for use for the long run. We executed test cases manually for executing tests, reporting bugs, and capturing test status continuously before it went to the production server weekly. During every build, test scenario was checked to make sure that the new addition of features does not affect the existing ones. To check the mobile compatibility for both iOS and Android, mobile handup was performed during test cases. Once all the bugs were resolved and verified, the application was validated for the production stage.

Is your application running slow or are you facing difficulties in identifying defects early that is affecting your application performance? It’s time to talk to one of our functional testing experts and see for the solution yourself how using our functional testing expertise you can reduce the overall testing costs, rework, and enhance quality.

Solution Offered:

To conduct complete automated tests, a separate server was started to run and pass tests, which helped our testing team to detect bugs in a timely manner and see the actual status of the product for the client team. Performance and load testing helped to identify weaknesses in the application, which resulted in fast and stable operation of the service. The results of all types of testing depending on the type and form was recorded in the bug-tracking system.

Tools : Selenium, Postman, Sahi, TestComplete, SoapUI, Swagger
