BALTIMORE, July 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Audacious Inquiry (Ai), an industry leader in connected care, announced a partnership with Georgia Hospital Health Services, the shared services subsidiary of the Georgia Hospital Association (GHA) to launch GA Notify. This new service will improve care transitions and outcomes for patients who visit an emergency room, have an inpatient hospital admission, or are seen in an ambulatory clinic setting.
GA Notify will offer clinicians real-time insights regarding a patient's encounter activity, prompting rapid follow-up with patients who have had recent emergency room visits or hospital stays. Rapid follow-up during a transition of care has been shown to improve health outcomes and reduce hospital re-admissions.
Bill Wylie, GHA's senior vice president of business operations, shared his enthusiasm for launching GA Notify.
"GHA represents the collective voice of all Georgia hospitals. We seek partnerships that will help our more than 170 hospitals provide the best possible care to our communities. Our partnership with Ai will improve health information exchange statewide and will align us with our colleagues in neighboring states, including Florida, Tennessee, and Louisiana, who also leverage Ai's technology."
Audacious Inquiry's president, Scott Afzal, added, "GHA is demonstrating their commitment to better care by supporting interoperability in Georgia. They're in good company as Ai now supports the exchange of health information through deep networks in 11 states. The Ai team is thrilled to serve the GHA membership and the citizens of Georgia."
