The insurance regulatory world is rapidly evolving. With health care reform, the current economic environment, the movement toward international accounting standards and regulation, and many other occurrences, the regulation of insurance companies is certain to undergo dramatic changes over the next few years. Insurance professionals are seeking not only systems that can meet these ever changing requirements, but also knowledgeable resources who can keep them informed and up to date on all that is occurring in the regulatory arena.
