Address Cleansing Service

We are excited to announce that access to SmartyStreets is now available to all AIRA member IIS programs. This service is a data quality intervention. It comes at no cost, though it may require internal resources for integration. IIS can choose from several ways of connecting to the service, including manual batch processing, automated batch processing, an HL7 real-time solution, and/or a user interface API.

Getting Connected

IIS that want to sign on to SmartyStreets should:

  • Read the Implementation Guidance and create a plan for how their organization will use and integrate the service.
  • Review, sign, and return to AIRA a simple Partner Agreement per their organization’s policies.
  • Receive tokens to access SmartyStreets.

We also encourage you to join the Address Cleansing and Geocoding User Group to get help in your initial set-up, troubleshoot any issues, and leverage peer-to-peer relationships with other users across jurisdictions and platforms.

Easy Monthly Reporting

Each month, all member participants are required to fill out a short (five-minute) survey. It communicates to AIRA the number of addresses your jurisdiction cleaned, gives you an opportunity to share your feedback, and helps us to evaluate how successful this project is. That’s it!

Want to Learn More?

AIRA hosted two informational webinars to introduce SmartyStreets. The content was identical, but registrants' questions varied.
