Swiss Social Security (AHV-AV)

The AHV-IV in Switzerland is a government program that provides retirement benefits and disability insurance, not unlike Social Security in the US.

For its operation, it relies on a number of forms to be filled out by employers and beneficiaries. The government mandated Softcom to create a web-based version of those forms, with specific requirements regarding safety, accessibility, multilingualism, ease of use, and scalability.

Softcom created a web based version of the forms for AHV-IV using Orbeon Forms, and the forms are now in production. As an example, see the Insurance certificate application form.

Open2Bizz is an IT service provider, located in the Netherlands, with clients in many industries including healthcare. One of their clients needed a system that would manage all of the Electronic Health Record data for their orthopedic product business. Open2Bizz created a solution using Orbeon Forms and Odoo.

Odoo users were able to add patients and create new health records for patients. After creating a new record, Odoo automatically created several forms in Orbeon Forms. These forms were then filled out by physicians and other users. For more information, see Odoo and Orbeon Forms, The Perfect Marriage for Medical Records.

Government of South Tyrol, Italy

The Italian province of South Tyrol is using Orbeon Forms to deal with a variety of programs and services on their website. The use of Orbeon Forms makes it possible for citizens to reach out to their government through web forms, whether it is for business or community services. Today, citizens can already apply for hunting and fishing licenses, access volunteer programs and social services, and soon, the province of South Tyrol will add new forms for tourism and education, as well as registration for business and municipal services.

Being able to access forms online has made communication easier for the government and citizens, and will eventually lead to a paperless workflow. For technical details regarding this implementation, see the slides of a presentation by Davide Montesin on the topic.
