FOUNDATIONS HEALTH SOLUTIONS TAPS OX ZION FOR COMPLIANCE SOLUTIONS
OX Zion, the proprietary Business Operating System created by Vantage Agora offers businesses around the world the tools they need to navigate complex business challenges and objectives. For Foundations Health Solutions (FHS), a premier long-term care support firm and Professional Employee Organization (PEO) based in North Olmsted, OH, OX Zion enables company compliance with all reporting, regulatory and training requirements.
Foundations Health Solutions, like all long-term care firms, must remain compliant with requirements set forth by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Two critical considerations for compliance in reporting is Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) hours and employee training.

FHS turned to Vantage Agora for a technology-based solution that would afford the organization greater efficiency and accuracy in these areas.
The second challenge FHS faced was the dissemination of training to ensure all employees are compliant with the latest training requirements. “Our company prides itself on adaptability and staying in front of industry changes,” said FHS HIPAA Director and Integrity Officer Grace Rawlins. “In addition to helping us achieve operational efficiencies, this system enables us to disseminate information and education to employees quickly and easily, in a variety of formats. It’s the only logical way to keep up with educating employees on ever-changing government regulations.”
In partnership with Visyt, Vantage Agora developed a tailored solution for FHS using technology including the OX Zion Business Operating System (BOS). The new customized tools help FHS import time-clock, time-sheet, payroll and vendor data into a single platform for accurate, efficient PBJ reporting. The tools also include a training and assessment module that helps 8,000 employees meet ongoing training requirements.

“When I ask other CEOs what keeps them up at night, they often speak about issues with control, visibility, real-time meaningful data and compliance,” said Sudhir Achar, CEO and co-founder of Vantage Agora Inc. “Our business operating system, OX Zion, is built on these core fundamentals. For example, one of the apps on the system, CEO Desktop, enables business leaders to see the real-time status — including sales forecasts, projects, processes, tasks, HR, accounting, compliance and much more — of every department.”
FHS is just one example of an organization harnessing breakthrough technology to achieve its operational and workforce goals. Vantage Agora has built OX Zion into solutions for businesses in industries ranging from healthcare, insurance and human resources to manufacturing, sales and information technology.
“The architecture of OX Zion is exceedingly versatile and industry agnostic,” explained Vantage Agora Solutions Architect Mehul Kenia. “When presented with the FHS challenge, we were able to customize an ideal solution quickly. This is one of the most outstanding benefits of OX Zion: We designed it to be adaptable to the unique needs of any business without requiring extensive, and often expensive, code modification.”
