Dr. Emily Landon from the University of Chicago Medical Center (UCM) has been an early adopter and pioneer of automated hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems (AHHMS). In this webinar, Dr. Landon will share UCM’s extensive journey from evaluation and validation of the technology to widespread implementation, sustainment and how their AHHMS has kept HH at the forefront during the pandemic.
At the end of the presentation the learner will be able to:
- Explain the limitations of the current gold standard, direct observation, and why it’s preventing you from seeing hand hygiene clearly in your facility.
- List the conditions for success when implementing an automated hand hygiene monitoring system.
- Summarize how AHHM can lead to improvements in hand hygiene but also with other quality improvement initiatives and ultimately improved cultures within the organization.
