Conference Roundup: Accela at the NEHA 2017 AEC

Conference Roundup: Accela at the NEHA 2017 AEC
Another fantastic NEHA 2017 AEC is in the bag! The Accela Environmental Health team recently returned from the National Environmental Health Association’s Annual Education Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan. As in years past, it was again a pleasure to greet familiar faces and see where the environmental health sector is going (and meet the new, bright minds leading the way!). The NEHA AEC is always a busy place – we typically divide our time at the event talking about Accela Environmental Health in the booth, serving as panel moderators, and presenting classes. This year, myself and my colleague Darryl Booth both led sessions, and Darryl was also a panelist in a well-attended session discussing Environmental Health Tracking and Informatics. We had many productive conversations with attendees looking to learn how technology drives environmental health departments to build capacity to be more responsive, customer friendly and productive. Of particular interest this...

Accela Engage Series: Q&A with Darryl Booth, SVP and GM of Accela Environmental Health
I had the opportunity recently to sit down with Darryl Booth, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Accela Environmental Health, and ask him a few questions about Accela’s upcoming annual civic tech conference. Darryl joined Accela last year from Decade Software, where he served as President and worked with sales, marketing and product development to deliver high-quality environmental health software, and he continues his mission here at Accela. Have you attended Engage in the past? I was fortunate enough to attend Engage 2015 not long after joining Accela last July. What do you enjoy most about Engage?

The Accela Environmental Health team recently wrapped up the National Environmental Health Association’s Annual Education Conference (NEHA AEC) in San Antonio, Texas, home of the Alamo, the beautiful Riverwalk and Texas barbeque! We’re a longtime partner to NEHA and a regular at this event. It’s so great to see familiar faces and meet new leaders in environmental health. We talked with many visitors to our booth about how the right environmental health technology benefits business processes from the back office all the way out to the field. One concept I heard over and over again at this event by multiple NEHA leaders was an increased focus on how data and informatics are helping health departments improve productivity, efficiency and effectiveness; this sentiment was echoed by many of our visitors who are looking to leverage the best data management and reporting technology to allow them to focus on their work.

Seattle & King County Partners with Stanford to Standardize Inspection and Scoring Methods with Peer-Reviewed Inspections

Seattle & King County Partners with Stanford to Standardize Inspection and Scoring Methods with Peer-Reviewed Inspections
b2ap3_thumbnail_becky-elias-seattle-king-county-neha-2016.jpg
I’m pleased to announce that our latest Building Capacity column can be found in the current issue of the Journal of Environmental Health. Written by our own Darryl Booth (SVP/GM of Accela Environmental Health), this column covers a project we’re exceptionally proud of as it comes from one of our own clients, Seattle & King County Environmental Health in Seattle, Washington. The Department knew that there was growing interest in publishing health scores from local restaurants. But when leadership began to investigate placarding methods, they identified variations in the data underlying existing scoring systems that they didn’t feel they could ignore. Luckily, Seattle & King County doesn’t lack for bright minds. Food and Facilities Section Manager Becky Elias contacted Daniel Ho, a preeminent scholar of government data disclosure and administrative law at Stanford Law School. Together, Ms. Elias and Mr. Ho set up a randomized controlled trial to assess the...
