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 waterborne 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, for quick access to LAMPS training notes and to enhance the credentials of their personnel via our e-Learning training courses.

The LAMPS water management 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, HC Info aims to provide great jobs for our team members and to steward revenue well. In 2019, we had the privilege of donating approximately 10% of our net operating revenue to charity (the maximum allowed for C corporation charitable contributions in 2019), to support organizations fighting human trafficking or providing homes, food, and education for street kids and abandoned babies.
