Automatic measurement and reporting of compliance rates
in virtually real-time
The DebMed® Group Monitoring, Tracking and Reporting System (DebMed® GMS™) can replace direct observation, self reporting, manual product utilization calculations and all other methods currently utilized to determine compliance rates in the healthcare environment.
HOW DOES IT WORK? Fully integrated hardware and software which capture all required data automatically utilizing electronic wireless communications.
Patented wireless wireless communications technology in dispensers automatically tracks product (soap + sanitizer) utilization and sends the information to a DebMed® server via cellular network.
New Point-of-Care Dispenser Technology
With the point-of-care dispenser, DebMed® has made it easy for healthcare workers to sanitze before, during and after providing patient care, putting hand hygiene compliance within reach.
Client hospitals access unit, hospital and multi-hospital dashboards and reports via the web.
Compliance rates are calculated based on the HOW2 Benchmarks™. The HOW2 Benchmarks are the expected number of hand hygiene occurences by unit and hospital type for specific times of day and days of week and have been developed based on a multi-hospital direct observation study by Connie Steed, Elaine Larson et al - research pending publication developed based on a multi-hospital direct observation study entitled:
"Hospital hand hygiene opportunities: Where and when (HOW2)? The HOW2 Benchmark Study"
