Building Capacity for Environmental Health

NEHA and Accela,Building Capacity for Environmental Health

In the interest of building capacity for the environmental health profession, NEHA and Decade Software established a pilot, three-year co-branding agreement in 2013 to further the use, fit, and future development of IT resources, specifically software designed for the environmental health profession.

The co-branding program ties to NEHA’s strategic directions of training and education as well as organizational capacity.

Purpose:

  • Technology is becoming integral to conducting the full spectrum of environmental health work. Through this program, NEHA expresses support for a nationwide environmental health workforce that is taking full advantage of all that technology has to offer.

  • Software applications hold the promise of increasing productivity and enabling environmental health professionals to better and more meaningfully use the data that they collect.

  • NEHA will also assist in communicating the benefits of software utilization for the advancement of the environmental health profession.

  • This partnership aims to accelerate the education, training, and use of environmental health software within the public sector environmental health community.
