Out-of-the-box solution enables health departments to scale quickly and provide streamlined services to communities more efficiently
SAN RAMON, Calif. – Accela, the leading provider of productivity solutions for government, announced today the launch of the Civic Application for Environmental Health. It is a software solution that enables health departments to modernize how they deliver services by automating critical activities such as granting permits, managing inspections, and resolving complaints, to significantly enhance their ability to protect public health.
The Environmental Health Civic Application is the newest offering in Accela’s Civic Applications suite. These are out-of-the-box solutions which accelerate the technology implementation process to speed time-to-value and reduce costs, and provide functionality based on best practices for government agencies. Civic Applications come with pre-configured workflows and business logic, specific permit types, pre-built user notifications, field-worker functionality, and reports designed specifically for specific departments. Civic Applications are built on the Accela Civic Platform, which includes an enterprise-class workflow engine, a feature-rich citizen portal, full GIS integration, and rich mobile capabilities.
The Civic Application for Environmental Health includes process automation for the wide range of activities environmental health departments often oversee, including inspecting and permitting restaurants, septic systems, childcare facilities, swimming pools and more. The Civic Application for Environmental Health was built upon Accela’s deep experience in deploying environmental health solutions for very large, mid-size, and small health departments across the country.
“Our new Civic Application for Environmental Health is an adaptable and scalable solution that can be implemented quickly, smoothly, and incrementally, catering to specific state and local government needs,” said Darryl Booth, general manager of Accela Environmental Health. “Accela is driving the next wave of innovation in government software, and this new Civic Application will empower health departments to protect public health and respond to community needs with faster turnaround times and 24/7 access to information.”
With Accela’s Civic Application for Environmental Health, health departments can better protect the public with automatic task routing and project status notifications, making the permitting process more transparent for agency staff and facility owners.The Civic Application also helps manage responses to complaints and any needed follow-up to help a facility resolve issues and re-open faster after an unsatisfactory inspection.
The Civic Application for Environmental Health launch propels Accela’s commitment to modernizing governments and creating technology that can be used to improve communities.
Today’s announcement follows the launch of Accela Civic Application for Cannabis Regulation, Accela Civic Application for Short-Term Rental Registration, Accela Civic Application for Planning, and the Accela Civic Application for Building.
