Q3 Technologies improved the quality of health care based applications by implementing the QA and QC process.

Client Background

The client is a leading provider of decision support technology and consulting services for optimizing drug development and improving health outcomes. The client provides regulatory strategy, writing, and submission services, as well as the model-informed drug development technology. The company offers a wide range of products, services and solutions to their clients to achieve key drug development, regulatory and commercial milestones.

Industry Landscape

Thousands of new drugs are being researched to treat and cure the diseases that affect both humans and animals. However, it takes years and years for a drug to travel from the research lab to the patient. Before reaching for the market consumption, many trials are conducted during clinical development that generates thousands of pieces of data. Thus, it is required to keep track of all the improvements, change in drug doses and their response on animals as well as humans.

Opportunity

Being one of the leading life sciences companies, the client had several testing and development environments for their upstream and downstream systems. Thus, it was needed to identify the right testing tools and testing processes. The challenge was to identify the right processes and improve the quality into the application.

Solution

Q3 addressed the client’s product and evaluated the testing processes to identify the areas of improvement. Based on that, the testing team at Q3 prepared the test plans and the test strategy documents to streamline the QA and QC process. In addition, Q3 started to write test cases of all complex scenarios with the help of requirement documents and executed the test cases on different platforms. Q3 used JIRA for test case management and bug tracking.

By our continuous manual effort on each of the frequent releases, we have improved the quality of application and released bug free applications to our end user.
