LA County Environmental Health Launches $5.7M Tech Project


July 5, 2013 By

Thanks to the Los Angeles Public Health Department's Environmental Health Division's newest technology project, field employees from 16 county district offices can now record inspection data on a tablet and provide a printed inspection report in the field, according to a press release. And in the next three months, the remaining 15 district offices will come aboard this mobile system.

Using the EnvisionConnect Software Suite, which includes a mobile inspection app, the Environmental Health Division manages environmental health services such as inspections and permits for retail, food, swimming pools and housing programs, as well as smaller programs that deal with theaters, pet stores and self-service laundry facilities. 

One phase of the project involved migrating more than 107,000 facility records and 117,000 permit records into the EnvisionConnect database, and another part of the migration process includes the county's deployment of 300 tablets to meet its automation goals. 

In the near future, the county is set to implement an EnvisionConnect portal to allow the public to submit online complaint forms and other applications. Through the portal, the public will have access to inspection results and closures.
