Automate the monitoring and reporting of hand hygiene compliance and create a compliance culture.
Accurate, Continuous and Objective Hand Hygiene Monitoring
Drive patient safety and turn caregivers into hand hygiene champions
Improve patient safety
Proper hand hygiene is known to reduce hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), which cost the healthcare industry billions of dollars every year and are a top patient safety concern. Automated hand washing compliance detection gives you the tools to measure and then improve hand hygiene performance.
Move from estimates to actuals
Manual observation of compliance can provide a false picture. Observations are only “spot checks” and may be subject to the Hawthorne Effect/observation bias, resulting in inaccurate data. The AeroScout solution gives you a true picture of compliance, right down to the individual.
Motivate and support caregivers
With data that is impartial and easily shared, the AeroScout solution puts each caregiver in charge of their own performance. You can identify your hand hygiene “champions” and have them mentor their peers in need of improvement.
A foundation for continuous improvement
Over time, your hospital will develop a detailed understanding of compliance by unit, shift, role and individual, giving you the information you need to target problem areas and drive continued performance improvements.

The AeroScout solution requires no extra steps for caregivers. Just use the hand hygiene dispenser as usual and the system takes care of the rest.
