Correct data exchange is critical for ensuring reliable healthcare systems. Standards based systems are the foundation for achieving this goal. However, standards alone are not enough to ensure this promise; conformance and interoperability testing are essential. We present and compare conformance testing strategies for a widely used healthcare clinical(More)
Certain commercial entities, equipment, or materials may be identified in this document in order to describe an experimental procedure or concept adequately. Such identification is not intended to imply recommendation or endorsement by NIST, nor is it intended to imply that the entities, materials, or equipment are necessarily the best available for the(More)
Language (VRML) for conformance can determine whether an implementation satisfies the requirements and specifications of the standard. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is developing a VRML Test Suite (VTS) to systematically address some of the problems posed by the nature of testing 3D-graphics. The VTS is being developed in(More)

National Bureau of Standards The National Bureau of Standards is an integral part of standards evolution. Through its institute for Computer Sciences and Technology. NBS conducts research and provides support for the development of both national and international standards. Another NBS task is to promulgate Federal information Processing Standards (FIPSs).(More)
This white paper presents general concepts, components, and issues related to establishing a conformance testing program. Although originally submitted to ebXML to stimulate discussion on testing and certification and to serve as a basis upon which ebXML test programs could be developed, it is not exclusive to ebXML. This document represents a work that has(More)
This panel session is intended to present recent technical developments in the efforts to standardize computer graphics. Several alternative approaches to 3-D standards will be presented and contrasted. The Virtual Device Metafile will be presented, as well as a proposed binding of the GKS standard to Fortran. Presentations will be made by the following(More)
Several members of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Technical Committee X3H3 on Computer Graphics will present current issues of the standardization effort. The focus of the discussion will be the technical content of these issues. The purpose of the panel discussion is to encourage technical dialogue between X3H3 participants and(More)
