Frost & Sullivan: Rising Public Awareness Promoting Acceptance of Infection Surveillance Systems Across Europe
Date:5/5/2009

LONDON, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Initiatives taken by European governments and healthcare authorities to install infection surveillance systems have aimed at improving efficiency levels and reducing expenditures. However, the lack of basic level automation is proving to be a major challenge.

"There is tremendous political pressure from governments across Europe to install infection surveillance systems in hospitals, due to the rising number of deaths being attributed to nosocomial infections," notes Frost & Sullivan (http://www.healthcareIT.frost.com) Programme Leader Konstantinos Nikolopoulos. "Hospitals are installing infection surveillance systems depending on individual protocols and different venues of care."

Mandatory rules have been established with regard to the setting up of infection surveillance systems in hospitals. The kind of systems installed in hospitals varies according to the regulations existing in the particular country and region.

Infection surveillance systems depend on existing systems such as electronic medical record (EMR), laboratory information systems and patient administration systems. The lack of even such basic level automation is emerging as a major challenge to sustained market expansion.

"A key reason why the lack of basic level automation is hindering the installation of infection surveillance systems is that these systems are interconnected," explains Nikolopoulos. "Infection surveillance systems collect data for analysis from existing EMR and laboratory systems, among others."

Another challenge relates to the degree of priority accorded to these systems. Governments will not agree to buy an infection surveillance system before acquiring more basic equipment since the latter are regarded as being much more important for hospitals.

Designing an appropriate system is not enough. Vendors must also try to develop good working relationships with hospital workers. In particular, it is critical to build ties with clinicians or nurses who are aware of the importance of infection surveillance systems.

"Hospital decision makers need to be convinced about the financial and clinical benefits that result on a department-wise basis when infection surveillance systems are installed," concludes Nikolopoulos.
