Sportsmed is pushing the boundaries of already high quality standards by being the first hospital in Australia to install BioVigil's hand hygiene compliance solution.

“We want our patients to know they are receiving the best care and with BioVigil there is visible reassurance that there is trust between our staff, patients and their families.”

BioVigil just crossed another strategic milestone with the addition of an Australian based hospital, sportsmed, to their client portfolio. Sportsmed’s installation officially marks BioVigil's expansion into Asia Pacific.

Sportsmed is a private orthopedic hospital and has a state-of-the-art health care hub at Stepney, South Australia. Alan Morrison, sportsmed’s CEO, explains the reason for choosing BioVigil is all about their patients: “We want our patients to know they are receiving the best care and with BioVigil there is visible reassurance that there is trust between our staff, patients and their families.”

Even before the successful installation in February, sportsmed already had a 90% hand hygiene compliance rate, which is very high. Only a few short weeks after the launch, they are sustaining hand hygiene compliance at 97%.

Additionally, BioVigil is laser-focused on helping their clients achieve positive outcomes with their solution. White Plains hospital experienced a 45% reduction in CLABSI and a 55% reduction in CAUTI and is published in the American Journal of Infection Control. Other hospitals have seen a 50%+ reduction in C. diff, up to 90% drop in cross-contamination, and significant reduction in staff absenteeism.

BioVigil CEO Sanjay Gupta explains, “I am proud that sportsmed is the first hospital in Australia to install BioVigil. They did it because they strive for excellence and continue to push the limits of their already high-quality standards. Sportsmed believes technology continues to play a big part in improving outcomes in healthcare and BioVigil can play a major role in supporting the delivery of exceptional care to their patients.”    
BioVigil expects to capitalize on its momentum with additional US and Asia Pacific installations in 2019.
