It’s Time to Move On: Why We Need to Stop Relying on Direct Observation and Embrace Automated Hand Hygiene Monitoring as the New Gold Standard
Healthcare has been using the current gold standard for hand hygiene compliance monitoring, direct observation, for decades. The status quo is unlikely to lead to meaningful change. During this interactive breakfast symposium, the speakers will highlight the issues with direct observation and discuss why healthcare facilities seeking better outcomes will need to move away from this method. You will hear from an acute care facility that has been an early adopter and pioneer of automated hand hygiene monitoring technology. They will share their journey from evaluation to implementation to sustainment, while also describing their business case and providing perspective on C-level engagement.
