RFID records 4 Million hand washing events

RFID continues to play a major role when it comes to improving healthcare around the globe. The latest proof of that lies in the 4 million total hand cleansings tracked by Proventix Systems’ nGage system, which the company claims is the most widely adopted healthcare hand hygiene monitoring system in the U.S.

Hospitals that have deployed the Proventix system have experienced an average 105 percent increase in hand hygiene solution dispenses, resulting in an average healthcare associated infection (HAI) reduction of over 24 percent across all Proventix monitored units.

Proventix’s growth demonstrates acceleration in the application of low cost RFID devices for quality based monitoring solutions. Proventix provides active and passive RFID devices and services for quality compliance monitoring and active point of care communication for successful integration into operations.

The Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Birmingham, Ala. was the first hospital in the country to adopt a pilot project using nGage that resulted in a 22 percent reduction in HAIs and selection as one of two national HIMSS/ASQ Stories of Success. David Collins, the HIMSS director of healthcare information systems, called the intervention and the results achieved with nGage a ‘national model.’ “This [story] really rose to the top… It was really something others can learn from and possibly emulate for their hospital because it’s a simple thing but it’s effective.”

Healthcare regulatory agencies have identified hand hygiene as the single most important way to reduce infection risk. However, high levels of sustained hand hygiene compliance have remained elusive in healthcare facilities world-wide. The nGage system monitors hand hygiene compliance on a 24/7 basis.

When an healthcare worker enters a room, they are recognized and, upon the completion of a quality hand hygiene event, they are given important, patient-specific information such as patient risk for a fall, general employee information, or even employee-specific information such as stock market reports or sports scores. The messaging rewards healthcare workers at the point of care, improves workflow and creates opportunities for efficiencies while enhancing patient safety and care quality.

“The rapid spread of the Proventix nGage system across the nation demonstrates that quantifiable methods of improving quality outcomes are a focus in healthcare,” said Harvey Nix, Proventix Chief Executive Officer. “We are quickly developing and exploring nGage’s capabilities to monitor other quality events and create healthcare operational efficiencies. Once we start working with hospitals, we dream together about additional uses to reduce costs and improve quality.”
