ICNet is the only Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) case management and surveillance package that has been recommended as suitable for use by the UK Health Protection Agency and Department of Health and has also been designed, developed and is supported in the UK. Through interfacing with 3rd party databases such as the Laboratory system, Patient Administration / Hospital Information system, and Surgical systems, ICNet has been designed to automate the collection of data as required by the Infection Control Team (ICT), thus providing real time alerts, reports and analytical tools which saves considerable ICT time and helps to target action more effectively.
