BioVigil Releases Second-Generation Hand Hygiene Monitoring System
Date:3/16/2010

SANTA ROSA, Calif., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- BioVigil LLC has released the second generation of the BioVigil hand hygiene monitoring system. The innovative system enables hospitals to more effectively combat Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs) by dramatically increasing hand hygiene compliance among healthcare workers.  

HAIs waste over $20-30 billion each year, with as many as one in ten hospital patients picking up a secondary infection while spending time in a hospital. Infections are particularly dangerous for patients recovering from surgery, with as many as 99,000 deaths per year in the United States alone attributed to HAIs.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), hand hygiene is the single most effective way to combat hospital-acquired infections. As a result, 34 states have implemented standards which require hospitals to improve on hand hygiene.

The second-generation BioVigil system incorporates innovative badge technology and related sensors to effectively monitor hand hygiene compliance in hospitals. The system verifies the use of hand sanitizer in every patient's room, and records compliance data in a secure database.
