The integration of medical products into the actual workflows and working processes of a productive environment is a difficult, time-consuming and cost-intensive task for both manufacturers and operators. Despite the standardization of DICOM and HL7, the integration of software components and medical products into a hospital information system still represents a huge task, owing to a lack of appropriate validation environments. The objective of this project is to create a generic test environment for medical products and a method of systematic generation of appropriate test data. The scientific aim is to improve methods for integrating data-processing components into the specific context of an information system. A further important goal is to come up with methods of optimizing data quality in information systems, as well as find methods of dealing with poor quality data. With the aid of models of the target environment, the aim is to improve the requirements profile for components in the pre-development stage. With better, more realistic test data being derived from the models, the result should be improved component integration capability. At the same time, the models should help to identify inadequate data quality in the target environment at an early stage, thus enabling targeted integration preparation.
