Proventix Helps Princeton Baptist Medical Center Earn National Recognition from HIMSS/ASQ for Quality Improvement Using Information Technology
Date:2/14/2011

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Birmingham-based Proventix Systems, Inc. today celebrates with Princeton Baptist Medical Center, also of Birmingham, for the national recognition they received from HIMSS/ASQ for successful adoption of information technology to improve quality. Princeton Baptist was chosen from hundreds as one of two national HIMSS/ASQ Stories of Success for the 22% reduction in healthcare associated infections (HAIs) resulting from their adoption of Proventix's nGage™ Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) based hand hygiene monitoring system.

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and the American Society for Quality (ASQ) annually choose award recipients based on "outstanding accomplishments in the adoption and use of information technology to achieve improved patient safety, quality, effectiveness and efficiency."

Princeton Baptist Medical Center is being featured as a "Tier 1" organization, whose story demonstrates how technology helps support the six priorities of the National Priorities Partnership and The Joint Commission's national patient safety goals and priorities.

The nGage system monitors hand hygiene compliance 24 hours a day, 7 days week. Healthcare workers wear badges that are uniquely recognized by control units at soap dispensers throughout the hospital. When the worker enters a room or area where there is a control unit, they are recognized and, upon the completion of a quality hand hygiene event, they are given important, patient-specific information (such as "the patient is at risk for a fall"), general employee information, or employee-specific information (such as stock market reports or sports scores). The messaging creates incentives for healthcare workers at the point of care, improves workflow and creates opportunities for efficiencies while enhancing patient safety and quality of care.
