The Building Capacity initiative formalizes a long-standing relationship between the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) and Accela Environmental Health, to further the use, fit and future development of IT resources for the environmental health profession.

"NEHA and Accela share the goal of supporting environmental health professionals to be more effective and efficient in the local communities they serve. Whether monitoring our food safety, our drinking water quality, or air pollution, use of current technology is a vital tool in recording and tracking data saving countless hours of manual documentation.” Dr. David T. Dyjack, Executive Director/CEO

The partnership hinges on a multi-agency advisory board charged with defining and driving development of Accela Environmental Health management, permitting and inspection software. In addition, NEHA will continue to advocate the benefits of software utilization for the advancement of the profession.
