Baltimore, MD – December 5, 2018 – Audacious Inquiry LLC (Ai), an industry-leading health information technology and policy company, announced today that their care coordination solutions, including the Encounter Notification Service® (ENS®), PROMPT, and Unified Landing Page® (ULP) have earned Certified status for information security by HITRUST.

HITRUST CSF Certified status demonstrates that Ai’s solutions for connected healthcare, including ENS and ULP, have met key regulatory and industry-defined requirements and are designed to appropriately manage risk. This achievement places Ai in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST CSF helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.

As part of the rigorous approval process, Ai demonstrated technical proficiency and expertise across numerous controls including: electronic messaging, control of operational software, service delivery, risk evaluation, sensitive system isolation, and management commitment to information security.  Achieving HITRUST CSF certification status affirms Ai’s commitment to providing the highest standards of protection and security for personal healthcare information as well as adherence to industry regulations for risk management and privacy.

“Rob Horst, Ai’s Privacy & Security Officer, said, “The rigorous controls defined in the HITRUST CSF are necessitated by today’s nearly relentless threat of cyberattacks on the healthcare industry.  All of Ai’s current and prospective customers deserve the assurance that Ai takes those threats seriously and that we are implementing, measuring and managing those controls as part of our business operations.  We are proud of this important achievement, but we also recognize that our security program needs to continue to progress to address evolving security threats and the evolving needs of our customers.”
