EHA : Yearkbook 2009
EHA YEARBOOK 2009 52 the data. Our program has reduced this time to less than 10 minutes. A prototype of the software program was installed in 2004. Due to the application’s success, the Food Services Department of Canberra Hospital has confirmed the long-term implementation of the software application to generate the required food safety Management Reports. With the increasing importance of computer technology and its application in the field of Quality Control, our initial assessment of this innovative software highlighted significant time and associated cost savings. As well as this reduced labour cost, the software also provides the essential time-history temperature information, which fulfils the requirements of the recently introduced mandatory food safety programs. A unique feature of the software is that it produces an exception report, indicating potential non-compliances (See Figure 1). An additional feature of the software is archiving of raw data on a nightly basis, so that where reports have indicated a concern, the data may be reviewed to reveal precise trends in temperature change. Further, during power failures, the battery within the data logger permits the continuation of temperature records and data storage for more than a day, ensuring valuable data are not lost. This particular monitoring system completed its first calibration compliance testing in January 2006.
