Infection Prevention Online Community Site Launches - Focused on Product Selection
Date:11/20/2009

HINESBURG, Vt., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Kestrel Health Media, a mission-oriented website company that specializes in creating sophisticated medical product selection and comparison tools, today announced the launch www.infectioncontrolsource.com, an online community website serving healthcare administrators with a comprehensive database of infection control and prevention products.

"Our mission at Kestrel is to educate healthcare administrators and product purchasers about new and existing infection prevention products that may result in cost-savings for their facility and eventually result in better patient care," says President Jeanne Cunningham.

With over 600 detailed product summaries, InfectionControlSource.com will soon become an indispensable resource for clinicians, offering them:

  • Comparative Product Grids
  • Advanced Search
  • Commenting/Rating/Reviewing of Products
  • New product Launches
  • Educational Product Videos

All product information is non-biased and reviewed by clinical expert Barbara A. Goldrick, RN, MPH, PhD, CIC, before being published on the website to ensure accuracy.

"Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs) account for an estimated 1.7 million infections and 99,000 associated deaths each year, with an added $4.5 to 5.7 billion in healthcare costs," according to Dr. Goldrick.

"The CDC estimates that 32 percent of all HAIs are urinary tract infections, 22 percent are surgical site infections, 15 percent are pneumonias, and 14 percent are bloodstream infections. Equipped with the right products and the knowledge of how best to use them, we can combat these numbers," she said.

Products covered on www.InfectionControlSource.com include: Environmental Disinfection, Hand Hygiene, Face Masks & Gloves, Isolation Products, Waste Management, and other product to prevent V.A.P., UTIs and the spread of H1N1, C. Diff and other hospital acquired infections.

Exciting new tools such as a Formulary Manager, Reimbursement Code Finder, Mobile Applications and Price Range Comparison are slated to be added to the site later this year.
