IH Data Analyst partnership improves exposure assessments

Industrial Hygienists can now make better informed decisions about the risk of exposures to chemicals, noise, and other hazards in the workplace, thanks to a new interface between Medgate and IH Data Analyst.

Medgate customers can now directly access IH Data Analyst, created by EASi, thanks to an exclusive partnership announced last year. It allows users of Medgate’s industrial hygiene software to perform Bayesian Decision Analysis (BDA) as part of their risk assessments to give clearer outcomes about exposures with limited data.

IH Data Analyst is widely recognized as the industry standard in BDA tools, used by hygienists all over the world. Before now, industrial hygiene professionals have had to use a standalone application, adding significant time and effort into their risk analysis processes. By integrating this tool into Medgate’s Industrial Hygiene suite, Industrial Hygienists will be able to manage all of their risk assessments in a single, centralized location.

Medgate’s Industrial Hygiene Product Manager, Monica Melkonian CIH, said: “Performing Bayesian Analysis with IH Data Analyst will allow Medgate customers to validate their professional judgment regarding risk, to help ensure the best possible decisions are made about risk of employee exposures.”
