The latest market report published by Credence Research, Inc. “Hand Hygiene Compliance Monitoring Systems Market – Growth, Future Prospects, Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026,” the global hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems market was is expanding at a CAGR of 7.62% from 2018 to 2026.
To combat the growing burden of healthcare associated infections, the use of hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems (HHCM) and methods has increased in healthcare facilities worldwide. Efficient hand hygiene at several key instances is imperative for preventing the incidence of infection. Healthcare workers operate in an environment that has heavy workload, multitasking and responsibilities. Implementation and deployment of the novel hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems take these factors into account and provide enhanced solutions for ensuring hand hygiene at all settings in any healthcare facility. The latest hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems use scanning and location monitoring technology to perform collection, reporting of data and alert individuals for ensuring compliance.
Majority of the HHCM systems use hospital networks for transmitting information whenever a caregiver enters or leaves treatment room and dispenses hand hygiene product with exciter unit embedded in dispenser system. This triggers healthcare staff badges and sends message containing the details of the caregiver, time and location of the wash event. New solutions also offer just in time coaching system to the healthcare workers when they miss out to wash and records real time information. The SafeHaven solution uses real time locating system (RTLS) as indoor GPS, wherein it displays the location of employees through three components, namely, badge worn by the worker, sensors located in patient rooms and other locations and strategically located badge readers. Such granularity of HCCM systems make them actionable as the reports generated from these systems as specific as which product was used, when and where the compliance activity was performed and when the task was missed. Such data can be used by managers and decision makers for enhancing compliance statistics and outcomes.
Some HCCMs use technologies to assess whether or not the healthcare workers were washing their hands as frequently as desired in accordance to the WHO and CDC guidelines. The dispensers in such systems are aligned with electronic components to capture cleaning events on group basis as against requiring the healthcare workers to use badges and individual tracking. This delivers an evidence-based algorithm in determining how many times the healthcare workers should have cleaned their hands based on hospital relevant data such as worker to patient ratio.
