Michigan IT Companies Helping the University of Miami Center for Patient Safety Tackle a Leading Cause of Death Using an RTLS Solution to Monitor Staff Hand-Washing Compliance
Date:7/29/2009

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Miami UM-JMH Center for Patient Safety has successfully launched a hand hygiene compliance (HHC) pilot project with the help of two Michigan-based technology businesses who specialize in health care real-time locating solutions (RTLS).

Dynamic Computer Corporation is a health care RTLS systems integrator based in Farmington Hills, Mich. Traverse City -based Versus Technology designed the automatic HHC system using their patented infrared - radio frequency (IR-RF) technology that has been deployed in hundreds of hospitals for automating patient workflow events. The HHC solution can be deployed as a standalone system or as part of an enterprise RTLS system.

How the HHC solution works

The solution uses small IR-RF sensors in soap dispensing units that read staff ID badges and monitor the location and timing of hand-washing events. Employees hear a verification sound upon successful information capture about whom, when and where the hand washing event has occurred.

"Nothing matters more than the safety of our patients. That's why we are working with Versus and DCC to create an exciting, technologically-advanced system to decrease healthcare-associated infections," said David J. Birnbach, M.D., M.P.H., Director, UM-JMH Center for Patient Safety.

The goal of the HHC solution is to prevent healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) by promoting evidence-based practices and fostering a culture of safety and accountability. Hospitals are able to accurately track and report on HHC compliance in real time, and retroactively to monitor problem areas for additional training where necessary. Staff members are alerted in real time when they forget to wash their hands, before an adverse event takes place.

"This is a reliable and affordable solution with compound benefits
