CenTrak, provider of real time location systems used for tracking equipment, patients and staff, announced the release of its new hand hygiene compliance system.
Battery powered monitors can be mounted to any dispenser, canister, pump, or sink to track usage. The system automatically captures a caregiver’s badge ID upon entry and and exit from patient care areas along with hand hygiene events, based on specific hospital compliance regulations.
The dispenser monitor communicates each event to the network to record each caregiver’s compliance performance. Data is stored on CenTrak’s local or hosted server and can be accessed by compliance management and reporting solutions.
The system can be deployed standalone or in combination with a full scale CenTrak system and the dispenser monitors have a battery life of five-years, eliminating the need for in-room wiring and enabling quick and easy installation.
