Track information over time, find trends and patterns, optimize workflow and improve hand hygiene practices in your facility.

Hand hygiene "compliance" isn't enough.

You may have measured "compliance" in the past, but to what standard? Were you counting simple hand washing events of any duration?


The World Health Organization (WHO) sets a high standard for effective hand hygiene technique: vigor, duration, and specific techniques and motion. 


In a recent test, our solution improved compliance with proper hand hygiene technique from 36% to 95%, after just two weeks of evaluation.
