NEHA/PHII Collaborative Project

The goal of the Leveraging Informatics to Improve Environmental Health Practice and Innovation project is to understand food and recreational water inspection data needs and challenges to inform the identification of recommendations and best practices for the field.

The project team utilized the Collaborative Requirements Development Methodologyto gather information that would guide the development of a business process analysis (BPA).

As part of the project we surveyed, interviewed, and conducted a workshop with Georgia, Southern Nevada, Riverside County, CA, Virginia, and Maryland to understand:

  • food and recreational water,
  • inspection processes,
  • data use,
  • standardization,
  • analytic capabilities,
  • platforms,
  • storage, and
  • sharing practices.

This project is in partnership with the Public Health Informatics Institute and funded by CDC.
