awareHandHygiene improves hand disinfection compliance by 30-60%, reducing the incidence of hospital-acquired infection and associated treatment costs.
awareHandHygiene uses location tracking to monitor staff compliance with soap-and-water or gel-based hand hygiene events in relation to patient encounters and food handling. Organizations can reduce the spread of infection by improving hand hygiene practices through staff’s understanding of the monitoring process (Hawthorne effect) and providing alerts to clinicians and leadership about non-compliant events. awareHandHygiene uses a sophisticated rules engine to identify appropriate timing for hand hygiene (before or after a patient interaction or break), and monitors the effectiveness of the hand hygiene event, e.g. dwell time of personnel at a soap-and-water sink for 15 seconds. The solution eliminates the need for manual observation, and helps leaders trace potential cross-contamination from poor hand hygiene. Historical dashboards provide leadership with data to drive compliance and improvement.
