The world’s first evidence-based training system designed to significantly improve everybody’s hand hygiene, showcase quality improvement, and reduce the risk of spreading infectious diseases.
A seamless integration of a dedicated quality program, artificial intelligence and self-serve training device, with advanced analytical and dashboard software.
The Semmelweis Scanner allows staff to have a private moment to practise and reflect their hand rubbing skills, which is the most basic hospital infection prevention measure. The hand rubbing skill performance is recognized through an objective method with immediate feedback. It is an extraordinary experience that attracts staff’s participation and draws their attention to the importance of hand hygiene. It allows the completion of hand hygiene assessment for a large number of people in a short period of time, which makes it suitable for large-scale institutions. The administrators can access massive data through an easily readable graphical user interface in the Semmelweis Reporting System, which allows for further data processing to improve quality measures.
The Semmelweis Scanner is regularly used within the nursing and midwifery skills center. A swift scan and immediately accurate feedback. This apparently works just as tempting as social media! Everyone is curious about their results and is motivated to pursue a successful test. This means that hand hygiene is put in a positive light. After a few months, almost 70% of our students have a correct technique of hand hygiene. This device does not fail in its target!
Hand hygiene is one of the most important ways to prevent the spread of microorganisms. The use of the Semmelweis Scanner makes it possible to evaluate the disinfection techniques and give individualized feedback to the healthcare workers. This way we create more awareness around the proper techniques for hand disinfection and provide a tool to optimize these techniques. By using the hand hygiene scanner we notice a higher involvement of our health care workers and a continuous motivation to further optimize their hand hygiene techniques.
There are many electronic systems on the market for monitoring hand hygiene compliance, but the Semmelweis Hand Hygiene Solution to my knowledge is the first and only system that allows the IP to monitor per cent compliance and also the correct technique which is the driving force in reducing HAIs. In addition, it is a cost-effective, time-saving way to educate staff.
