Improving Patient Outcomes Through Electronic Hand Hygiene Monitoring and Reminding: Whitepaper, Webinar and Resources

GAINESVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hand hygiene is one of the most important measures to prevent the spread and acquisition of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). However, adherence to hand hygiene protocols by healthcare workers is extremely low.

In this whitepaper, you will:

  • Learn the clinical and public health implications of healthcare associated infections
  • Learn the costs related to infections and how improving hand hygiene can reduce those costs
  • Learn the correlation between hand hygiene and healthcare associated infections
  • Find citations and clinical based research on electronic hand hygiene monitors
  • Review of case study of a hospital currently using an electronic hand hygiene monitor
  • Learn about costs related to infections and how improving hand hygiene can reduce those costs
