“Without change, there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.” — William Pollard
Healthcare has been using the current gold standard for hand hygiene compliance monitoring, direct observation, for decades. The status quo is unlikely to lead to meaningful change. During this interactive breakfast symposium, the speakers will highlight the issues with direct observation and discuss why healthcare facilities seeking better outcomes will need to move away from this method. You will hear from an acute care facility that has been an early adopter and pioneer of automated hand hygiene monitoring technology. They will share their journey from evaluation to implementation to sustainment, while also describing their business case and providing perspective on C-level engagement.
- Explain the limitations of the current gold standard, direct observation, and why it is not likely to lead to meaningful change.
- List the conditions for success when implementing an automated hand hygiene monitoring system.
- Describe how automated hand hygiene monitoring technology can align with the objectives of the C-Suite and how to utilize the tools provided in this session to begin the dialogue.
Breakfast will be provided and CE credits are also available for those that attend. Register today!
