Cardinal Health, Inc. is a global company that serves the healthcare industry with products and services that help hospitals, physician offices, and pharmacies reduce costs, improve safety, productivity and profitability, and deliver better care to patients. Cardinal Health develops market-leading technologies, manufactures medical and surgical products, and is one of the largest distributors of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies worldwide.
Initially, CAP Index was hired to conduct a crime risk analysis for each potential real estate purchase that Cardinal Health was investigating.
Application & Results
“The CAP Index data provides a clear data point to help identify and justify capital security expenditures.”According to Greg Halvacs, Chief Security Officer of Cardinal Health, the data from CAP Index played a substantial role in evaluating the trends and potential risks of new and existing facilities. CAP Index’s ability to predict crime for a specific area allowed the company to include an often-overlooked factor – the safety of the neighborhood — in the decision of whether or not to acquire a site. After conducting research and gathering the information, the data was used in the development and design of an appropriate security solution. The crime report also indicated which type of crime was most prevalent in the community, and allowed Cardinal Health to train its employees accordingly.
Presented in a clear and concise manner, CAP Index’s data has proven to be widely accepted throughout Cardinal Health as evidence to support financial investments in risk mitigation. As Greg Halvacs puts it, “The CAP Index data provides a clear data point to help identify and justify capital security expenditures.”

Our property selectors are not discouraged from a site just because it receives a high score. What we do is issue every store – all of them – a security classification. The classification determines how we allocate our security resources to that store.
CAP Index's online platform, CRIMECAST, is great. It is easy to use and quick!

In industries where there is high public contact and a customer is coming to our location (such as retail), why would you leave it to chance when planning security when there is an easy, affordable tool? When investing a million dollars on a location, what is this small charge compared to what it may cost you when you get sued?
CAP Index assessments are a must for anyone engaged in asset protection. The new website is much improved and as important, easy to navigate.
