COVID-19 — What Does it Mean for Key Green?

The coronavirus and the disease COVID-19 has been sweeping through the world, causing stress amongst healthcare systems and work facilities alike. What does this mean for service at Key Green Solutions?

  • Your team members Key Green Solutions continue to work diligently to ensure you have access to the most accurate and updated report. 
  • As a Software As A Service (SAAS) company, we are inherently able to provide our employees “Social Distancing” allowing them to work from home and for you our users to access this data and reporting remotely. 
  • Our close-knit staff members are well prepared to work from home and are able to service our customers like any other given day. One hiccup that may come is data delay—this would be due to slower responses on the end of our customers’ vendors, who are mostly working from home during this stressful time. From our end, however, our software will continue to function as it usually does—don’t hesitate to reach out with any additional data work you need done!

Another year of assisting health systems with Practice Green Health awards has come to a close!

Key Green Solutions has been helping upload data to the Practice Green Health award application for years. This year, we were able to help 13 healthcare systems: Bronson, Dignity, Harvard’s Beth Israel Deaconess, Hackensack, Johns Hopkins, Montefiore, Memorial Sloan Kettering, Sutter, Seattle Children’s, Stanford, University of California, Veterans Affairs, and Valley Health.

Key Green Solutions is a great tool to use for applications such as Practice Green Health and the Cool Food Pledge. When you don’t have time to put together all the numbers, we step in and do it for you. We are happy to help make a time-consuming task much more manageable, and look forward to working with more healthcare– and beyond– systems in the future!
