Countdown to Compliance:
One Contract, All Bases Covered
Whether you operate in a few or many states, and regardless of the number of hospitals per state, Audacious Inquiry will ensure 100% compliance with a single contract and SaaS-delivered service.
Operating in more than one state makes achieving full compliance with the CMS CoP rule an extra challenge for IDNs when you are not able to handle the last mile delivery of the notifications.
As a national leader in healthcare information interoperability, we provide one contract nationwide:
- In states where your system is a member of an HIE, we can deliver directly to and in collaboration with the HIE.
- In states where there is no compliant HIE, or your IDN is not a member, our CoP solution will handle compliant notification delivery all the way to the providers.
Ai is the leading encounter notification provider in the country; delivering over 30 million notifications per month to subscribers from over 20 percent of connected hospital beds across the country. Our many years of experience as data quality experts have taught us how to connect to any ADT data source. We have the flexibility to deliver notifications in a multitude of ways to providers and accountable care organizations to maximize workflow impact. Hospitals rely and trust in our technology and experience every day to deliver compliant notifications all over the country.
Trusted & Secure
Ai is certified by the leading standards organization, Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST). Ai takes the privacy and security of the sensitive data entrusted to us very seriously. Cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving, so we work diligently to continuously improve and advance our privacy and security protocols to ensure the safety of our customers’ information.

“Ai has been a tremendous partner in finding ways to support GA Notify, but also GHA’s overall data program and data strategy. CoP compliance is just another example of this.”
-Bill Wylie, Sr. Vice President – Business Operations
“Audacious Inquiry’s team has both the level of expertise in policy through their work with ONC and CMS, and the ability to deliver their technical solutions in a rapid, secure, and scalable way. ConnecTN runs on Ai’s Encounter Notification Service; what started out as a voluntary extension of our data program has become a tool to satisfy state Medicaid requirements and now CMS’ new CoP regulation.”
-Bryan Metzger, Sr Vice President – Information Services
“I can be very confident that our members will meet CoP compliance because our partners at Audacious Inquiry are experts in the field, and they have supported our members with ADT-based notifications for the past eight years.”
-Craig Behm, Maryland Executive Director
