Monitoring system measures hand hygiene compliance

Article

An electronic hand hygiene compliance monitoring system could be a positive addition to your practice. Based on the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) “Save Lives: Clean Your Hands” and “Five Moments for Hand Hygiene” recommendations, the DebMed GMS (Group Monitoring System) measures the hand hygiene compliance of healthcare workers who come into contact with patients.

Recently patented core technologies within the DebMed GMS collect data on how many times physicians wash and/or sanitize their hands.

The system uses an evidence-based algorithm to pre-determine the expected number of times the physicians should be washing and/or sanitizing their hands.

By dividing the actual hand hygiene events by the expected number of opportunities for hand hygiene, the system calculates the practice’s compliance rate in real-time.

Studies have shown that traditional hand hygiene compliance monitoring methods like direct observation and self-reporting are inaccurate and unreliable, so the system is a significant advancement over other current compliance methods.

International patents are still pending.
