The Marion County Public Health Department (MCPHD) serves the greater Indianapolis area, providing services that cover every element of public health, including approximately 12,000 on-site restaurant inspections. MCPHD recently automated its inspection process using mobile computers and printers.

Previously, health inspectors used hand-written inspection forms to perform their duties, leaving a carbon copy of the inspection form with the restaurant and turning in their original copy for staff to enter manually into the department's computer systems. "We had just a few people doing this data entry, and since we do thousands of inspections each year, they were always behind," says Thomas Beck, business analyst and project manager at the MCPHD.
