Project Scope

Clemson University's Mainframe Medicaid system project includes making federally mandated changes for the Medicaid system. The project is majorly focused on quality assurance (QA) of requirements and supporting user acceptance testing of software coding changes to Medicaid systems related data. Testing of changes includes testing with the users and external healthcare providers and trading partners as needed. This project requires interfacing with other agencies and other internal systems.


V Group as a prime vendor is majorly responsible for testing coding changes throughout the project. Our project deliverables include the creation of test scenarios, test plan, and test case development, in which the team covers the end-to-end functionality of the application and all the business flows of the application.

We conduct several test runs to see if the functionality works correctly by using test automation and test management tools. Our team also conducts an extensive analysis of test results from the tests like load and performance testing that helps us in the resolution of differences in actual and expected test results. As a validation for every requirement, we are required to verify independent validation and verifications thoroughly to ensure accessibility and perform user acceptance testing.
