Test Methodology

How We Test

At HTR, our mission is to empower HIT professionals and healthcare professionals with information to help them make better and more informed buying decisions. We believe that the best way to produce independent, fair, and accurate reviews is to use scientific testing procedures to examine the performance of products. All too often, technology product reviewing is mired in uninformed analysis, performance conclusions based on nonstandardized testing, and bias skewed towards the companies being reviewed.

All HTR reviews are produced by a staff of product experts. We follow a strict policy separating our advertising and editorial departments. (see our ethics policy below) Editors are strictly prohibited from accepting any gifts or press junkets from the companies they cover. In addition to these policies, HTR follows strict standardized testing methods which are outlined below.

Testing Philosophy and the Scientific Method

HTR endeavors to follow the scientific method as closely as possible in our product review and testing procedures. This includes gathering measurable evidence using objective and unbiased procedures that are easily repeatable and reportable for every product within that category. Our reviews combine a variety of test procedures which are designed to comprehensively test the performance of given products. This comprehensive testing approach means that our reviews are among the most reliable, fair, comprehensive available.

Fair and Equal Treatment of All Products

The goal of all of our product testing is to provide you with accurate, scientifically valid information about how well a product performs the tasks for which it is designed, regardless of the cost. We do consider the cost of a product in our final conclusions, but it doesn’t enter into our testing process.
