Introducing Real-Time Intervention Blueprints™

By Chris Hermann

Our new suite of data visualization tools provides unprecedented insights to Infection Preventionists and hospital managers, and allows them to quickly identify the most efficient path to hand hygiene improvement.

This week, we’ll show you how you can see, at a glance, the highest risk by hospital room or patient condition. (Last week, we showed you how you can quickly identify the highest risk by individual.)

Real-Time Intervention Blueprints™

Real-Time Intervention Blueprints help prevent HAIs before they start by showing managers which rooms and patient conditions are at the highest risk for spreading infections.

How They Work:

In the Real-Time Intervention Blueprint below, the symbol in each patient room indicates if it is normal, isolation, C. diff or silenced (see legend). The size of the shape indicates the number of hand hygiene opportunities. Larger shapes mean there are more clinician entries and exits. The color of the shapes indicate performance (darker green = higher performance; darker red = lower performance and more missed opportunities).

Below is a representation of a Clean Hands – Safe Hands hospital partners’ performance in one unit during one shift.

Real-Time Intervention Blueprint

At a glance, managers can identify the rooms that are having issues with hand hygiene, making it easy to focus on those that need help. In addition, the system can send managers a text message mid-shift, indicating which rooms they should check on before an HAI has an opportunity to spread.

These data visualization tools are new to the market and only available from Clean Hands – Safe Hands. For more information, or to schedule a demo of our electronic hand hygiene reminder system, contact us.
