CLAIMS
What is claimed as invention is:

1. A method for testing a healthcare computer system, said method comprising the steps of:
generating simulated patient health information conforming to statistical models of the patient population; and
delivering the information generated to a healthcare computer system for testing of that system.

2. The method for testing a healthcare computer system of claim 1 wherein the simulated patient health information comprises medical records.

3. The method for testing a healthcare computer system of claim 1 wherein the simulated patient health information comprises electronic health records.

4. The method for testing a healthcare computer system of claim 1 wherein the simulated patient health information comprises admissions, discharges, and transfers.

5. The method for testing a healthcare computer system of claim 1 wherein the simulated patient health information comprises information taken from the group consisting of clinic information, hospital information, emergency department information, imaging department information, laboratory department information, population care registry information, healthcare accounting and administration information, and medical research information.

6. The method for testing a healthcare computer system of claim 1 further including the step of storing and reusing the information generated.
