Badge-base hand hygiene surveillance

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

The expense and complexity of some automated hand hygiene compliance and surveillance technologies have made cost justification and market adoption difficult. BioVigil Systems LLC is looking to eliminate these barriers with its simple to deploy chemical sensor and micro-processor on a personnel badge. The badge employs a metal oxide alcohol sensing device to detect when a health care worker has used an alcohol-based foam or gel hand hygiene product. The system is unique in that the room entry/exit technology, sensing, memory and communications capabilities are all self-contained within the badge. As such, the system moves with the worker, thereby not interrupting regular workflow.
