"...As federal and state government continues to shrink, more responsibility is falling back to local government. Given the financial challenges facing local government, the only way to meet these expecations is through innovation!"
-Nelson Fabian, former NEHA Executive Director
The partnership, an initiative we call Building Capacity, formalizes a long-standing relationship between the National Environmental Health Association and Decade Software Company to further the use, fit, and future development of IT resources for the environmental health profession.
“By teaming up, NEHA and Decade will jointly work to increase the sophistication of the environmental health workforce,” explained Nelson Fabian, former Executive Director and CEO of the National Environmental Health Association. “Software applications hold the promise of increasing productivity and should enable environmental health professionals to better and more meaningfully use the data that they collect.”
The partnership hinges on a multi-agency advisory board charged with defining and driving the development of EnvisionConnect, Decade Software Company’s environmental health management, permitting, and inspection software. NEHA will also continue to advocate the benefits of software utilization for the advancement of the profession.
