Sparksoft awarded HETS Independent Testing Contractor task in support of CMS

“… Sparksoft will support the following HETS modernization efforts during this contract: transition from waterfall to Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) program delivery, migrate from CMS Baltimore Data Center to AWS, automate testing and system health check processes, and replace proprietary testing tools and test cases with open source tools best suited for Agile methodology and cloud implementation. This award builds on Sparksoft’s center-wide Independent Validation and Verification (IV&V) support at the CMS Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI).”

“Sparksoft’s CEO, Mr. Mike Finkel, said that “We are honored that the government continues to recognize the value that we bring through our innovative test automation services and products, and entrusts us with independent validation support on mission-critical programs to ensure that Medicare providers, beneficiaries, and taxpayers receive maximum benefit.””

“The HIPAA Eligibility Transaction System (HETS) provides Medicare beneficiary information to Medicare providers, suppliers, and their authorized representatives for the purposes of determining beneficiary eligibility. HETS provides real-time verification of beneficiary eligibility using the ASC X12 270/271 EDI standard, and processes approximately one billion transactions annually. Submitters access HETS either by using the CMS Extranet (TCP/IP), through establishing internet connectivity using Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Web Services Description Language (WSDL) envelope standards, or by using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) multi-part” Source: Sparksoft
