Crowdsourcing's Impact on Public Health
Dinesafe partners with over 400 public health organizations. We utlize crowdsourced reports of consumers' foodborne illness experiences from Iwaspoisoned.com. This aids public health organizations in enhancing food safety in their respective areas. These partnerships serve as a link between the public and health authorities. This method of crowdsourcing is vital for public health agencies as it provides real-time, geo-fenced data, offering a comprehensive view of food safety issues as they arise.
Visualizing Our U.S. Public Health Subscribers
The map illustrates over 400 public health subscribers in the United States, including county-level and statewide health departments. Each of these organizations leverages our platform for up-to-date insights on regional food safety issues.
The partnership between Dinesafe and many public health organizations has helped to enhance food safety practices. Our primary function in this partnership is to act as a channel for information, linking reported cases of foodborne illnesses with authorities capable of investigating and addressing these issues.
