IDIOM Forms is a tool for generating web2.0 forms that embed the power of IDIOM decision models into the form. As the user navigates through an IDIOM Form, the integrated decision models can be executed on a field by field basis to make various business calculations and assessments, and to modify the form’s meta data. This allows the decision models to dynamically adjust the visible shape and content of the form on a field by field basis.
An IDIOM Form can be used to process complex business transactions (e.g. insurance underwriting, a clinical pathway, a loan application) through to closure, including such functions as validation, transaction acceptance, pricing, and up-selling.
IDIOM Forms is capable of dealing with substantial, complex entities, with many forms in production now having thousands of data elements in a single form.
The IDIOM Forms Engine (the runtime component of IDIOM Forms) is production hardened after many years production use on thousands of servers throughout the NZ health sector. The deployed IDIOM Forms Engine became the basis for the NZ Health Information Standards Organisation (HISO) forms standard and is currently the most compliant under that standard. The Forms Engine is also now in use in the finance sector for insurance underwriting, claims management, and loan evaluation.
