ATLANTA and ORLANDO, March 14, 2022 – Cox Communications today announced the addition of hand hygiene monitoring capabilities to its real-time location services (RTLS) platform Cox Prosight.
According to the Center for Transforming Healthcare, 2 million patients contract healthcare-associated Infections (HAIs) every year and 99,000 succumb to the infection. Cox Prosight’s hand hygiene monitoring capabilities enable hospitals to observe hand hygiene events to the latest Joint Commission and Leapfrog standards and help reduce preventable healthcare-associated infections.
Each sanitizer dispenser facility-wide is equipped with a sensor that transmits real-time data into a dashboard. This enables users to monitor the overall number of hand hygiene opportunities throughout a facility and compliance by staff group, job role, individual employee, department and shift. It’s designed to enable the infection prevention team in hospitals to meet stringent Leap frog requirements.
Hand hygiene is just one way Cox Prosight is improving hospital operations. Leveraging RTLS and Cox’s Prosight CoreSM Internet of Things (IoT) platform, Cox Prosight provides hospital administrators and staff with advanced asset tracking, environmental monitoring, staff safety alerts and patient/visitor experience solutions.
Cox Prosight is already at work in the field with impactful results. Cox’s longtime healthcare partner Ochsner Lafayette General has been using Cox Prosight for over six months, tracking 5,400 pieces of equipment, multiple staff members to ensure efficient operations.
Attendees of HIMSS22 from March 14-18 in Orlando will get to demo Cox Prosight’s new hand hygiene monitoring capabilities, and explore Cox’s growing healthcare portfolio of hospital to home including:
“Healthcare no longer ends when a patient checks out. It’s an ongoing relationship between provider and patient that’s facilitated by next-gen technology. For a hospital to home care model to be successful, healthcare systems need to ensure their entire infrastructure – from connectivity to data management to remote patient monitoring – are working together to make it all happen,” said George Valentine, executive director of new growth and development, Cox Communications. “That’s why Cox is so unique in this space, we match deep healthcare experience with a suite of solutions that creates a unified experience.”
To experience the full suite of Cox’s hospital to home solutions at HIMSS22, book an in-person demo or visit booth #3520. Cox will also host an in-booth Happy Hour on Tuesday, March 15, from 3-5 p.m. ET.
