Hand hygiene has long been regarded as the most effective method to prevent healthcare associated infections.

Guidelines from the CDC have repeatedly emphasized that hand washing is the single most important procedure for preventing infections, yet reports continue to indicate that healthcare worker adherence to hand hygiene protocols is low.

HyGreen is designed to provide the first line of defense in the control of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). The system actively reminds busy healthcare workers to wash their hands and records all hand washing events and patient-staff interactions in the hospital environment giving hospitals the first comprehensive and definitive tool to effectively monitor adherence to hand hygiene protocols.
