Test Engineer/SQA Analyst

Confidential,is a project implemented by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). The VA has an IT infrastructure which is used to run most of VA operations. The IT systems have several modules like Pharmacy, Allergy, and Clinical etc. Part of the Health Data Repository project goals is to integrate all of VA’s data centrally at a national location. HDR is implemented in several phases; the first phase involved systems talking to each other through RPC calls, and further phases involved developing an App Server based system. Clinical Data Service (CDS) is the access service to patient-centric, clinical data persisted in Veteran Health Administration’s Health Data Repository (HDR) data stores. The definition of the data content and associated semantics that will be mediated by CDS is represented by the Veterans Health Information Model (VHIM), the product of a separate project team and presented as a UML model; it is also transformed to a payload model, in the form of XML schema (XSD) documents. CDS is designated to be the authoritative data service for HealtheVet applications and services. CDS will supply read and write services to HDR data that is nationalized, patient-centric, clinical, and viewable. This architecture is based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).


  • Reviewed requirement documents and Use Case Specification Documents for testability and based on those documents information to start the testing process.
  • Worked on the Test Plan documents based on the requirements Analysis and existing use case Specification documents. Prepared manual and automated test cases and executed those test cases.

Used Messaging Workbench for Parsing the HL7 message. Verified and validated, the data is transformed from HL7 format (ER7) to VHIM XML format and also migrated from HDR IMS to HDR II database. Used Oracle SQL Developer and TOAD for writing SQL Queries to verify and validate the uploaded data in database. Worked on SQL and UNIX commands data verification and backend testing.
  • Worked on HTH Emulator to test the HTH vital messages and verified and validated the ACKs messages from the HDR database. Also Worked on VHA application read client i.e. RDI and VistaWeb to verify and validate the read data. Tested the Patient Correlation via MPI (Master Patient Index). Tested field record checks, validated various reports in Mainframe systems.
  • Reported the inconsistencies and anomalies that found during testing to the development team using Clear Quest tool. Conducted the group sessions to share the knowledge regarding the components among the team and worked on Knowledge transfer document to transfer the knowledge to the new team members. Also worked closely with Project Management, other departments, and the SQA team to communicate issues.
  • Prepared the Test Evaluation document and developed the necessary technical documentation describing test information based on Functional and Technical Specifications for training purposes. Actively participated in the meetings involving project manager, and SQA team regarding change control, status reports, remediation plans etc.
