Deb Group Introduces First Real-time Hand Hygiene Group Monitoring System Based on World Health Organization Guidelines
Date:3/1/2011

STANLEY, N.C., March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Deb Group today announced the availability of the DebMed®GMS™ (Group Monitoring System) - the world's first group monitoring system to report hand hygiene compliance rates in real-time. With this new innovation, hospitals can now immediately monitor compliance rates based on the World Health Organization's (WHO) "Five Moments for Hand Hygiene." A stand-alone system, the DebMed®GMS™ can be installed in any hospital without the need for pre-existing real-time locating systems (RTLS) or radio-frequency identification (RFID).

Each year in the United States, 1.7 million healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are responsible for 99,000 fatalities, making it one of the leading causes of death behind cardiovascular disease and cancer. It is difficult to estimate the total economic burden of HAIs; however, it is believed to be as high as $45 billion each year. Increased pressure from payers and the government has now amplified the need for hospitals to find cost-effective and convenient tools to increase hand hygiene compliance and infection prevention.

The DebMed®GMS™ was first showcased to the infection prevention community in New Orleans in July 2010 at the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Conference, after more than two years of development in collaboration with Greenville Hospital System in Greenville, S.C.

"Before the DebMed®GMS™, we relied on hospital staff observing and reporting on compliance rates," said Tom Diller, M.D., Vice President of Quality and Patient Safety at Greenville Hospital System (GHS). "Now that we have 24/7 access to reliable data based on the WHO 5 Moments for Hand Hygiene; our unit managers can share the data openly and frankly with staff on the unit and take immediate action to improve performance."

"Hand hygiene is a priority for us at GHS and this is the kind of breakthrough innov
