ATLANTA, July 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Clean Hands Safe Hands’ award winning hand hygiene monitoring system received a patent for its Natural Language Voice Reminder™ and its variable detection range technology. According to the CDC and WHO, hand hygiene is the single most important aspect in preventing the spread of infections throughout hospitals. Roughly 1 in 25 patients acquire an infection during hospital admission, leading to nearly a million infections annually in the US.
Clean Hands Safe Hands, founded by Dr. Chris Hermann, helps reduce the spread of infections by providing a technology platform to remind providers without disrupting their workflow. One of the major features of Clean Hands Safe Hands System is the Natural Language Voice Reminder™, which is a unobtrusive audio recording of a person’s voice reminding staff members to perform hand hygiene if they forgot to do so. The Natural Language Voice Reminder™ provides a reminder that stands out above the hospital environment’s standard beeps and alarms that are frequently ignored. In a yearlong peer reviewed clinical research study, the Natural Language Voice Reminder™ demonstrated the ability to improve hand hygiene by more than 400%. The variable detection range allows the Clean Hands Safe Hands system to customize based on the differences in varying hospitals, hospital units, individual rooms, and even down to the specific patient needs.
“The Hand Hygiene Monitoring IP is a crowded space and I am very happy to see that our unique approach to hand hygiene monitoring is being protected by this patent. This is a testament to the hard work of our highly talented engineering team.” Chris Hermann, PhD, Founder and CEO.
