These nationwide deployments, of an electronic hand hygiene monitoring system, are the only nationally adopted electronic hand hygiene system anywhere.
United States (PRUnderground) March 31st, 2015
HyGreen, Inc. completed a collaborative partnership with The Ministry of Health (MoH) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 2014. The HyGreen Hand Hygiene Reminding and Recording System has been deployed in 25 MoH hospitals supporting its goal of reducing hospital acquired infections through improved hand hygiene.
HyGreen has also been approved by the Turkish Ministry of Health (MOH) as the exclusive hand hygiene recording and reminding system option in Turkey. The Turkish MOH includes approximately 1,200 medical centers nationwide. Installations will begin in the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2015.
These nationwide deployments, of an electronic hand hygiene monitoring system, are the only nationally adopted electronic hand hygiene system in any market across the globe.
Every year, failure to wash hands causes hundreds of thousands of deaths worldwide as organisms are transmitted from patient to patient via the unwashed hands of healthcare workers. The implementation of HyGreen supports the MoH’s commitment to patient safety by actively reminding healthcare workers if they forget to wash before patient contact and wirelessly recording hand hygiene compliance.
“Clinical Studies show that reminding healthcare workers to wash only when they forget and record all hand hygiene events results in the only proven mechanism to change hand hygiene behavior,” says HyGreen President, Ron Youngblood.
“HyGreen gives just in time coaching to healthcare workers when they forget to wash and reports the information in real-time. The importance of data on individual healthcare workers is essential, giving hospitals the opportunity to reward healthcare workers who are doing a great job and re-train healthcare workers who are not complying to hand hygiene protocols.” says HCS-Medical President, Spencer A Hoyt
HyGreen was designed to follow the recommended hand hygiene guidelines from leading industry experts, including the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization and the Joint Commission among others.
