ATLANTA, GA – October 19, 2021 – Clean Hands–Safe Hands announced today that it has once again been named a “Best Infection Prevention Product” by Newsweek through a collaboration with The Leapfrog Group.
To establish the 2021 list, teams of experts and analysts evaluated products using four criteria: effectiveness, safety (to both patients and health care workers), successful real-world implementation, and stability of the company (to support future implementations). Though the trajectory of Covid-19 is far different now than when Newsweek’s first list in this series was published in May 2020, effective infection prevention remains critically important to not only curtailing further spread of the pandemic, but just as importantly, in preparation for future health crises.
About Clean Hands – Safe Hands
Clean Hands – Safe Hands (CHSH) helps reduce HAIs by inspiring a personal-best approach to hand hygiene. Headquartered in Atlanta, the company began through a research consortium of the CDC, Emory University, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Georgia Tech Research Institute. Knowing that the primary accepted method of direct observation is ineffectual in reducing HAIs, physicians and technologists worked together to develop an innovative solution to the real-world problem. The CHSH technology supports a unique, systematic process that drives behavioral change and delivers value to hospitals all along the journey to HAI reduction and prevention.
