DebMed Awarded Electronic Hand Hygiene Monitoring Systems Category Agreement with Premier, Inc.
Date:7/17/2014

CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DebMed has been awarded a group purchasing agreement in the Hand Hygiene Monitoring Systems category with Premier, Inc. Effective October 1, 2014, the new three-year agreement allows healthcare organizations that are Premier members access to the DebMed Group Monitoring System™ (GMS). The DebMed GMS is the world's first electronic hand hygiene compliance monitoring system based on the World Health Organization's (WHO's) "Five Moments for Hand Hygiene" and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) hand hygiene guidelines.

"As healthcare worker hand hygiene remains at a staggeringly low 40 percent, there is much work to be done to provide safer and cleaner environments for hospital patients and staff," said Heather McLarney, vice president of marketing, DebMed. "Our contract with Premier allows us to reach hospitals across the country in search of the best way to track and improve hand hygiene to ultimately achieve better patient care. And as the only electronic monitoring solution available that monitors by the World Health Organization Five Moments and CDC hand hygiene standards, we offer something not previously available through Premier until now."

The complete suite of DebMed products available include:

  • The DebMed GMS: Electronically tracks staff hand hygiene activity and provides hospitals with timely and actionable hand hygiene compliance data to help organizations create and sustain quality and safety initiatives.
  • Point-of-Care Dispenser: The DebMed GMS compliance tracking system includes specialized point-of-care dispensers which provide easy access to hand sanitizer within the immediate patient zone. The dispenser supplements the standard wall-mounted units, providing bedside accessibility that will enable healthcare facilities to more readily comply with the WHO Five Moments and CDC guidelines for hand hygiene.
  • Product-Agnostic Monitoring: The DebMed electronic hand hygiene monitoring system is also compatible with any soap or sanitizer dispenser. This enables hospitals and other healthcare facilities that may have a preference for one hand hygiene product over another to implement the most reliable method of electronic hand hygiene monitoring while still using the skin care products of their choice.
