Better Performance from Key Green Solutions

Key Green continues to invest to provide our customers best-in-class performance!

Last week our team of technicians upgraded our production severs, taking our user experience to a new level.  The new servers take advantage of virtualization; our main server and mobile server are now virtual machines that allow us to move seamlessly to new hardware in the future. We now have the capability to move to our backup server in a very short amount of time if hardware problems arise.  Our database server was upgraded to new hardware and faster drives to handle increased activity and volume of clients and customers.  

With our new servers and operating system on the database– combined with the migration of the web servers to virtual containers– Key Green Solutions is poised for long-term operation with simplified future upgrades and larger volumes of data processing.  Our customers will be experiencing a faster, more robust environment as they run complex reports!

One of the modules we at Key Green Solutions track is food! Food has a great impact on the environment; what we put in our cafeterias can either negatively or positively affect your immediate community. With our module, we can automatically input the items your vendors provide to you along with costs. You can take an even deeper look and track how many sustainable foods you are purchasing, and how much of your cafeteria is made up of foods purchased from local vendors.

Track and measure the food and beverages purchased to establish a baseline, set goals, and track your progress. The food module provides robust metrics and food data collection that is essential for making healthy food purchasing changes. We track:

• Less Meat, Better Meat (reduced meat purchases)

• Healthier beverages

• Local and sustainable food purchasing

• Cool Food Pledge

• Practice Greenhealth

• Partnership for Healthier America

• Prime

Additionally, we can customize the criteria to meet the needs of your specific organization!

Key Green Successfully Uploads Data to Practice Greenhealth Award Application

Another Successful Year!

Key Green Solutions has not only done it again, but we have done it bigger and better than last year.

How? One word; Automatic. Key Green Solutions is the Gold Standard for data. We collect data directly from the vendors and upload it into our software. We receive this data monthly from the vendors and keep our Dashboard up to date, allowing hospitals to view the most accurate and current data. Our team reviews the data and clarifies any discrepancies with the vendors. This is how we export data into the PGH Award Application, all it takes is one click.

Other data upload statistics include:
