DebMed® will be educating attendees of the Premier Breakthroughs Conference on best practices for clinical hand hygiene and the newest tools to improve healthcare worker hand hygiene compliance, aligning with one of Premier's key goals of helping members improve community health by providing the highest quality care at the lowest cost.
As healthcare moves from a fee-for-service model to one based on quality outcomes, healthcare providers need to find ways to reduce hospital-acquired infections and associated readmissions in order to maximize financial incentives and minimize penalties under pay-for-performance programs. DebMed offers a sophisticated and research-based technology that has enabled healthcare organizations to improve hand hygiene behavior and reduce infection rates.
DebMed will be offering a special promotion to Premier, Inc. members during the show, which will be held June 23-26, 2015 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md.
The Premier Breakthroughs Conference features well-known and respected healthcare, political and business leaders who will share their visions and discuss transformational challenges. The conference sessions include the best and the brightest experts and innovators who will offer strategies, review trends and highlight solutions that will help healthcare organizations meet the reform challenges ahead. In addition, the tradeshow floor showcases innovative products and services from more than 450 contracted suppliers.
"DebMed's partnership with Premier, Inc. demonstrates the growing significance of hand hygiene, and implementing better hand hygiene practices in healthcare," says Heather McLarney, vice president of marketing for DebMed North America. "Innovative new technologies such as electronic hand hygiene compliance monitoring underpin an improved safety culture, with a focus on the quality of care delivered."
