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

ation we need to help us meet our goal of creating a true patient safety culture," Dr. Diller continued.

With the DebMed®GMS™, hospitals are now able identify the actual number of hand hygiene events that take place in each area of the hospital in real time. Using data from the recently published "Hospital Hand Hygiene Opportunities: Where and When (HOW2)? The HOW2 Benchmark Study", the system uses the expected number of hand hygiene opportunities to determine each unit and hospital's compliance rate.  The "HOW2 Benchmark Study" was published in the February 2011 issue of the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC), was the first time that hand hygiene benchmarks were created based on the WHO's "Five Moments of Hand Hygiene." The "HOW2 Benchmark Study" received major funding from Deb Group.

"The aim of our study was to create, for the first time, a set of statistically significant benchmarks for various unit types in different hospital settings based on the WHO's "Five Moments for Hand Hygiene", not just before and after patient contact," said Elaine Larson, associate dean for research and professor of pharmaceutical and therapeutic research for Columbia University School of Nursing and one of the investigators of the "HOW2 Benchmark Study".  

"With this research, hospitals can now calculate reliable compliance rates when product utilization data are available," added Larson.

Using a combination of proprietary wireless technology built into its soap and sanitizer dispensers in conjunction with proprietary software that utilizes data from the "HOW2 Benchmark Study" in algorithms which calculate compliance rates, the DebMed®GMS™ provides hospitals with real-time access to compliance reports formatted as dashboards developed in collaboration with infection preventionists and infectious disease physicians. Meaningful dialogue among unit staff is thus enabled that fosters improved compliance behavior
