Hand Hygiene Compliance Technology
Hand Hygiene Compliance Technology
Prevent infection and save lives with hand hygiene solutions that work. Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) affect 750,000 people in the US every year, causing tens of thousands of preventable deaths and costing healthcare providers billions of dollars.
Experts have identified hand hygiene as the #1 way to reduce HAIs and protect patients and staff. But with hand hygiene compliance rates well under 50 percent—and no easy way to accurately know who is and isn’t washing their hands—healthcare providers need a better way to change caregiver behavior.
According to a University of Louisville Health study in the American Journal of Infection Control, the use of a sensor-based electronic hand hygiene system more than doubled hand hygiene compliance in an acute care environment.
Vizzia’s hand hygiene compliance technology solutions do just that. Vizzia offers two proven options to boost hand hygiene rates:
- Mobile monitoring app: Install our app and record observations about who is and isn’t washing their hands. With easy set-up and no hardware to install, you can get started today.
- Fully managed RTLS solution: Sensors on soap dispensers and other equipment interact with caregivers’ badges, providing real-time alerts and eliminating manual monitoring.

Staff then simply record what they see by selecting from a few key options. Data is automatically transferred to a central database, allowing you to identify areas for improvement and track change over time.

Option 2: Fully managed RTLS solution
With Vizzia’s full RTLS solution, sensors are installed on handwashing equipment and throughout the facility. The sensors communicate with caregiver badges and provide real-time alerts when a caregiver forgets to wash their hands. This solution eliminates the need for manual monitoring and provides more accurate data about who is and isn’t compliant.
