Colorado's Lutheran Medical Center has been selected as a finalist by the Fierce Innovation Awards in Healthcare for its implementation of BIOVIGIL's hand hygiene compliance system.

BIOVIGIL's hand hygiene compliance system is one of the tools we have adopted that will help us to create a successful future and bring the highest standards of care to our patients.

Finalists have recently been selected for The Fierce Innovation Awards: Healthcare Edition 2017. The awards recognize medical centers that have implemented innovative products, services, and technology over the past year. The innovations are judged by their efficiency of patient care protocols, competitive advantages, financial impact/value, and market need. The applicants with the top three scores in each category were selected as finalists.

One of the finalists in the Data Analytics/Business Intelligence is Lutheran Medical Center; a hospital in Wheat Ridge, CO that has implemented BIOVIGIL’s hand hygiene compliance system. First implemented at Lutheran in 2016, BIOVIGIL’s system has helped Lutheran increase the safety of patients, employees, and visitors. BIOVIGIL has become an integral part of Lutheran’s continuous mission to reduce the rate of hospital acquired infections.

Grant Wicklund, President and CEO of Lutheran Medical Center said, “BIOVIGIL's hand hygiene compliance system is one of the tools we have adopted that will help us to create a successful future and bring the highest standards of care to our patients. Our vision is being realized through our new Innovation Center and the highly talented and creative people that work here.
