IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Provide single pass HIPAA compliance checking

The WTX HIPAA compliance check application is made up of multiple validation processes. The first step is to pass the data through a structural type tree to determine which transactions are valid and which are invalid. If it is determined that a transaction set is invalid, it is then passed to the complete validation process to determine exactly where the errors occurred within the transaction.

The first part of the complete validation process is to validate the data from a structural point. The data must pass basic HIPAA structure validation in order to determine and add loop ids to the data. If the data is not well structured and fails this process, then the loopid can't be determined and the next step in the complete validation process can't execute.

Business users require that the HIPAA compliance checking process, primarily for 834s, occurs as a single process as is currently done in their legacy application as well as in Ab Initio. An option is needed that will produce reports of all errors, both structural and HIPAA compliance, in a single pass rather than requiring a two step process.

    Would require a significant re-architecture of compliance checker. Current architecutre requires multiple passes
