Electronic Hand Hygiene Solution Facilitates Positive Client Outcomes

The colored lights show patients and families if the healthcare worker has clean hands

Three colors of BioVigil's badge: Green is Clean, Yellow is a Reminder to Clean Hands and Red is Stop and Clean Hands.

Even the most basic clinics in poorer nations around the world can verify and ensure hand hygiene compliance with our system.

Protecting patients against Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) is always at the forefront of the minds of healthcare leaders. Experts agree that proper hand hygiene is the most effective way to prevent HAIs, and electronic hand hygiene solutions are the most effective way to solve this problem. Federal Health and Medicine, the publication for definitive health and medical research programs, discusses these topics in a recent interview with Sanjay Gupta, CEO of BioVigil.

BioVigil's Solution reminds healthcare workers to sanitize/wash their hands, if they forget. Unique to BioVigil are the visual and audible reminders. In the middle of the badge is a colored LED light in the shape of a hand. The light changes colors based on compliance and shows patients and families if their healthcare worker has clean hands. BioVigil assists hospitals with patient satisfaction by helping patients feel safer, increasing trust in the hospital caring for them.
