About HC Info

HC Info, founded by Matt Freije in 1995, is the provider of LAMPS, a cloud-based application for water management plans (WMPs), data analytics, and training.

LAMPS is used to reduce the risk of Legionella and other pathogens in hospitals, nursing homes, hotels, schools, apartment buildings, industrial plants, and commercial buildings — and to comply with CMS, ASHRAE Standard 188, and Legionella regulations.

HC Info provided consulting and training services for more than 20 years prior to the January 2016 release of our LAMPS software. The company helped facility operators prevent and solve Legionella problems in hundreds of buildings, provided expert opinions in more than 60 lawsuits, and taught training courses in six countries. The number of LAMPS users grew so rapidly that HC Info phased out of consulting to focus strictly on supporting the software.

LAMPS is now used by thousands of facility personnel, and by water treatment companies, engineering firms, industrial hygiene firms, and consultants (our partners) that are trained and authorized to set up LAMPS WMPs and/or Validation Data Analytics (VDA) for their facility customers.

Health departments use LAMPS, too, to train and enhance the credentials of their personnel via our e-Learning training courses.

The LAMPS training and water management plan content is unbiased. HC Info does not sell chemicals, equipment, filters, or laboratory services. We are free to consider water system procedures strictly on scientific evidence, practicality, and cost effectiveness.

At the 2019 annual convention of the Association of Water Technologies (AWT), HC Info received the AWT 2019 Supplier of the Year Award for LAMPS, an honor for which we are truly grateful.

Cooperation is needed to prevent waterborne illness. No one person or entity can do it alone. We network with people from both the public and private sectors. LAMPS users and e-News subscribers are located in Europe, Australia, Asia, South America, and Canada, as well as the United States. Our network of partners covers the US, Canada, and several other countries.

In addition to providing water management software for our customers and great jobs for our team members, HC Info aims to steward revenue well. The company donates approximately 10% of its net operating revenue to charity (the maximum allowed by the IRS for C corporation charitable contributions). In 2019, we had the privilege of giving money to several organizations that are fighting human trafficking, providing a home and schooling for street kids, and feeding, educating and loving orphans.
