DebMed Brings Focus on Patient Safety to HIMSS 2013
Date:2/26/2013

rect observation to a real-time, research-based technology that is more accurate, reliable and  helps improve patient safety in healthcare settings worldwide," said Paul Alper , vice president strategy and business development for DebMed. "Electronic hand hygiene monitoring is an imperative in this day and age, and should be a priority for healthcare executives. We believe that technology, mandates and quality of care have converged and the time is now for positive, impactful change. The DebMed GMS enables technology-enabled quality care, and empowers healthcare organizations to lead the change."

The DebMed GMS works by electronically monitoring healthcare workers' hand hygiene activity and provides feedback on compliance rates in real-time. The system reports compliance based on the WHO's "Five Moments for Hand Hygiene" using an evidence-based, statistically valid algorithm, making it the only hand hygiene system to meet the WHO's "Save Lives: Clean Your Hands" recommendation.

Because electronic monitoring systems are impartial, unbiased and the only way to capture and report on 100 percent of hand hygiene events, not just the fraction of 1 percent recorded by human observation, they eliminate the human factor and, with it, the Hawthorne Effect. This phenomenon happens when people know they are being watched or observed -- they tend to be on their best behavior. Research has shown that this will lead to overstated and unreliable compliance data.
