Regulatory Compliance Solution

Ayoka develops regulatory compliance solutions that help organizations manage risk and ensure compliance throughout the enterprise. As companies face an increasingly complex regulatory environment, customers have tapped Ayoka’s application development experience to develop regulatory compliance solutions that simplify and streamline the process of meeting compliance while mitigating risk.

Automation is essential to efficiently and consistently operating a regulatory compliance solution. By updating existing business applications or by developing an integrated platform, organizations can manage user access and automate manual tasks needed to demonstrate compliance. Some of the major regulations driving organizations to develop regulatory compliance solutions are PCI compliance, SOX compliance, and HIPAA compliance.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA Title II) provides for electronic exchange of health care information using standards for the electronic exchange of health care information and the establishment of security requirements to protect that information. Issued in 2003, the HIPAA Security Rule calls for health care institutions to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all electronic protected health information and a requirement to protect against any reasonably anticipated threats or hazards to the security of such information.

The HIPAA Security Rule does not mandate the use of specific technologies; health care institutions may develop healthcare solutions that are appropriate to their operations, as long as the selected healthcare solutions are supported by a compliant security assessment and risk analysis.

Business Problem – Outdated Regulatory Compliance Solution:

An independent software vendor was required to implement a regulatory compliance report for each database management system (DBMS) their application utilized (e.g. Oracle, DB2, MySQL, etc.).

Technical Solution – Add Workflow & Report to Meet Regulatory Compliance Solution Mandates:

Developed a reporting framework with a user interface that standardizes reports and implements queries to the appropriate data, no matter what database is used.

ROI – Functional Regulatory Compliance Solution:

Meets new reporting mandate for the regulatory compliance solution, thereby minimizing risk of fines while reducing time to generate reports. To support future changes to reporting requirements, the reporting framework was designed to support additional custom reports and reduce software development costs when creating additional custom reports.
