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.
