Electronic Monitoring Systems SMARTLINK Service Alert Predictive Technology

GOJO SMARTLINK™ Service Alerts, an Internet of Things (IoT) solution that uses predictive analytics to help ensure hand soap and hand sanitizer are always available for critical hand hygiene events in a healthcare facility, has been named a top innovation by InfectionControl.Tips.

This year, InfectionControl.Tips, a non-profit organization committed to promoting innovation that improves infection control in healthcare settings, named 18 finalists for this award, and is now asking attendees at select conferences and trade shows to cast their vote for top innovation of the year. Voting started at this year’s Canadian Association of Environmental Management Conference (CAEM), where GOJO SMARTLINK™ Service Alerts was named a Top 3 innovation.

“I believe in IoT, and our group believes in collecting data and using that data and analytics to improve outcomes and help reduce the spread of infection,” said Michael Diamond, executive director, InfectionControl.Tips. “GOJO SMARTLINK™ Service Alerts is the only innovation on the market today that offers a complete overview of everything from maintenance to servicing. This data helps to ensure hand hygiene products are available, and soap and sanitizer dispensers are ready and functioning.”

SMARTLINK™ Service Alerts is designed to provide a healthcare facility’s staff with near-real-time monitoring of refill status, battery life, communication and dispenser status for GOJO dispensers. This technology, which is easily integrated with the SMARTLINK™ Activity Monitoring system, collects usage and status data for each GOJO-monitored device. GOJO technology collates this information and sends not only near-real-time updates, but also predicts when a dispenser will need to be refilled. This data allows a healthcare facility’s staff to focus on just-in-time inventory planning and reduce waste by knowing the exact date of when a new refill will be needed.
