OpenEHR and low-code: an emerging revolution in healthcare
Quickly embracing the OpenEHR standard is now possible, with low-code.
WUR implemented USoft Solvinx, a privacy and security management solution for GDPR and industry-specific regulatory compliance management.
Wageningen University & Research (WUR) partnered with USoft to achieve robust GDPR implementation. Workflow-driven software Solvinx simplified privacy impact analyses for processing personal data, resulting in uniform practices throughout the organization, real-time insight into privacy risks and demonstrable control.
The mission of Wageningen University & Research (WUR) is ‘to explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life’ through education and research on healthy food and the living environment. Large volumes of potentially privacy-sensitive data are processed, relating to staff and students as well as research participants. With this in mind, WUR started looking for a solution that provided insight into privacy risks and helped employees remain GDPR-compliant.
Impact analysis required for GDPR compliance
Boosting privacy awareness towards GDPR implementation
Grant providers demand GDPR compliance
In the run-up to the GDPR, USoft was one of the few vendors in 2016 offering a software product, called Solvinx, for simplifying and automating a data privacy impact analysis (DPIA).
Developed using the USoft low-code platform, Solvinx is a SaaS solution that meets the university’s requirements for provable control of privacy laws and regulations.
The business rules approach offered by the USoft platform is specifically suited for developing complex, data-intensive and rule-intensive applications that improve uniformity in practices throughout WUR.
Wageningen University and Research (WUR) implemented USoft Solvinx, a privacy and security management solution for GDPR and industry-specific regulatory compliance management. The workflow-driven software made it possible for WUR to simplify its data privacy impact analysis, achieve uniformity in practices, and gain organization-wide real-time insight into privacy risks and mitigating measures.
SMART PIA, one of the modules of USoft Solvinx, enables automated privacy impact analysis. The system has since been used at WUR to evaluate over 9,000 projects and applications in terms of privacy impact.
Starting with a standardized DPIA questionnaire at WUR, USoft Solvinx provides alerts for key updates or upgrades that affect data processing so impact can be reassessed. Solvinx is also linked to the WUR project management system, providing built-in privacy and security checks.
Thanks to Solvinx, WUR can now evaluate personal data processing at the central level, displayed in clear graphic dashboards so Data Privacy Officers can monitor data access and risks.
At Wageningen University and Research, Solvinx supports 2.189 users, more than 1.000 assessments per year and 7 unique workflows.
WUR has increased privacy management efficiency by up to 40%, ensuring that privacy is fully embedded as an organizational behavior.
With expert assistance from USoft, WUR was able to get Solvinx up and running within a short time frame. The accompanying training and support services were invaluable in helping WUR researchers, staff and students use Solvinx as intended.
