The Touchstone Project is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Testing as a Service (TaaS) Open Access Solution for health information exchange. Touchstone offers over 1500 tests in an easy-to-use system for determining a test system’s conformance and interoperability against published specifications, standards, and profiles, including templates and implementation guides.
The Touchstone Project…
allows for automated, internet-based interoperability testing against the HL7 FHIR specifications and standards.
tests interoperability with other FHIR Server and FHIR Client implementations.
has been engineered from the ground up to leverage the new FHIR TestScript resource.
is a blend between Test-Driven-Development (TDD) methodologies and Natural Language Processing (NLP) test scripts.
has been featured at HL7 FHIR Connectathons and is being leveraged in a continuous testing environment by numerous leading HL7 FHIR implementers.
plays an active role in the HL7 Conformance Testing community, the HL7 Argonaut Project, and the HSPC Implementation community.
self-registration of user accounts and organizations.
ability for users to execute FHIR test scripts against test systems with Touchstone serving as the initiator of message exchanges.
ability for users to initiate message exchanges from their test systems against other peer test systems with Touchstone serving as the intermediary.
ability to drill down to individual operations and assertions in test execution results.
ability to save configured sets of test scripts as named “test setups” for re-execution.
controlled access to test scripts, test systems, and test results at the user, organization, and organization group levels.
