Ecolab’s Advanced Health Department Intelligence Program Honored with 2019 Kitchen Innovations Award

May 17, 2019

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2019--

Ecolab Inc. has received a 2019 Kitchen Innovations Award from the National Restaurant Association for its Advanced Health Department Intelligence (HDI) program. Advanced HDI helps multi-unit foodservice operators gain greater insight into their health inspection results and helps them identify and proactively reduce food safety risks across their locations.

“Ecolab’s HDI program capitalizes on advanced data analytic technologies and Ecolab’s expertise in food safety provides a new and magnified view of health department activities across the country,” said Bob Sherwood, executive vice president, Institutional Global Food Safety and Public Health.

Ecolab’s Advanced HDI program leverages a proprietary algorithm to automatically collect health department inspection reports in real time from jurisdictions across North America. The program provides easy-to-understand dashboards and digital reports with normalized scoring and categorized findings based on millions of inspections.

Key reports include top risk areas and findings, higher and lower performing locations, industry benchmarking and systematic trending. In addition, users can set up real time email alerts related to new inspections, frequent inspections, consumer complaints, critical risks, closures and other fully customizable topics.

To learn more about Ecolab’s Advanced HDI program, visit the Ecolab booth (#4000) or the Kitchen Innovations Showroom (#2440) during the 2019 National Restaurant Association Show, May 18-21, 2019, in Chicago.
