Healthcare analytics is targeting a multitude of issues and challenges in the current global healthcare industry. In a recent report by Transparency Market Research, they state that "healthcare analytics can be an effective tool for stratifying population to cater to public health priorities on an epidemiological basis. It can be of immense value in national preventive care, empowering patients with rights, health policy recommendation, public health financing, efficient government spending in health infrastructure, and facilitate enforcement of healthcare laws for patient protection in developing countries.
In a recent press release, HealthSpace Data System Ltd. (CSE:HS) (OTC: HDSLF) announced that it, "has launched a new web portal on behalf of the Oregon Health Authority ("OHA") that will allow the public to easily find inspection reports for facilities such as restaurants, swimming pools, and hotels. The portal is part of an updated statewide licensing and inspection system hosted by HealthSpace. This updated system will also collect inspection data in a way that will help OHA and county health departments better identify violation trends.
"For the first time people can get inspection results for every licensed facility in the state," said David Martin, Foodborne Illness Prevention Program coordinator at the OHA Public Health Division. "It will also give us improved data that we will use to address risk factors that can lead to illness or injury."
"The rollout exceeded expectations," Martin said. "HealthSpace was released on time and for less than was budgeted. It will be a great tool for our industry and regulatory partners to improve compliance and better protect the public from food, pool and lodging-related illness and injury."
HealthSpace hosts over 40 public facing websites across North America giving the public access to inspection results. HealthSpace President, Joseph Willmott stated, "Our public disclosure sites have been featured on numerous newscasts including NBC's Dateline." Willmott added, "In addition to the OHA testimonial, the non-profit Dining Safety Alliance has endorsed the HealthSpace disclosure sites as being unsurpassed."
"With our advanced verification, inspection and auditing tools we can enhance the public/private engagement to reduce risk and improve safety," Willmott said.
Oregon has about 25,000 licensed food, pool and lodging facilities. They include restaurants, mobile units, commissaries, warehouses, vending operations, swimming pools, spas, travelers' accommodations, recreational parks and organizational camps. All facilities are licensed and inspected locally by county health departments. Inspections are unannounced and focus on items most likely to cause illness or injury to patrons, but also include items such as general cleanliness and maintenance. In a food service facility, the focus is on approved food sources, cooking temperatures, holding temperatures of food, personal hygiene of food handlers and contaminated or dirty equipment. For a public pool or spa, the emphasis is on proper disinfection, clarity, entrapment concerns, proper filtration, and the pool enclosure. Tourist facilities are evaluated for safety and general sanitation concerns.
OHA's online inspection portal can be accessed here. HealthSpace replaces a system known as Phoenix that had been in use by 34 Oregon counties since 1994. This will be the first time that this information is available to the public for 34 of Oregon's 36 counties. Two other counties, Washington and Multnomah, use their own licensing and inspection reporting sites, although Multnomah County will be using HealthSpace starting in March 2018."
