Hand Hygiene Compliance Measurement

For the purposes of this Whitepaper, compliance can be defined as leveraging technology, products and clinical interventions to drive sustained improvements in hand hygiene compliance, thereby reducing the incidence of HAIs, reducing the cost of healthcare and improving patient outcomes. These three features (technology, products and clinical interventions) work synergistically to create a hand hygiene program with the ultimate goal of sustained improvement in hand hygiene. A healthcare facility could purchase the most technologically advanced hand hygiene measurement system, but if the hand hygiene products are not accepted by the staff, and there are no interventions to address trends found in the data, the goals will not be achieved.
