Ascom helps hospitals optimise hand hygiene workflows and compliance monitoring
Ascom, the Swiss-headquartered supplier of healthcare ICT solutions, is helping hospitals improve hand hygiene and thus reduce healthcare associated infections, by delivering an advanced mobile solution that tracks staff compliance to hygiene procedures.
New Ascom Unite Cleanminder automates hand hygiene mobile alert reminders for caregivers and delivers compliance reporting feedback.
The ability to monitor hygiene compliance is an important step in reducing the overall risk of patients contracting HAI while in the hospital. With the Ascom Myco smart device, location awareness and Ascom Unite Cleanminder software, hospitals can now deploy an automated monitoring and reporting solution. This solution provides hospital staff with mobile alert reminders on their Ascom Myco smart device and delivers compliance data for measuring performance trends and improvements.
"Hospitals need a way to measure hand hygiene compliance," states Andre Neu, SVP Platform Solutions at Ascom. "Using an automated approach with our Ascom Myco smart device and Unite Cleanminder software, we can leverage reminders and measure hand hygiene compliance - without the need for manual recording or intervention. This approach embeds the monitoring of hygiene compliance into care processes."
Ascom has operating businesses in 18 countries and employs around 1,300 people worldwide.
