SureWash takes a modern approach to delivering infection prevention and control (IPC) training in the healthcare setting. The leading technology delivers practical hand hygiene training and assessment, IPC education, and automated reporting. The interactive software system uses a live video camera to assess the users hand hygiene technique. To help users improve their technique, real-time feedback is also provided throughout the training. SureWash shifts learning from the classroom setting into the hospital environment, making training available 24/7. Quality training and re-training is therefore accessible for all healthcare workers, patients and visitors. To offer a complete solution, the lesson and quiz function allows for custom IPC content to be delivered also. Infection control personnel can then access users training data on SureWash.Net. The IPC team can therefore to evaluate and monitor hand hygiene progress to guarantee positive results.
Hand hygiene is a critical component of infection prevention and control training. Therefore, we want to help ensure that effective hand hygiene is performed at the point of care, and this begins with education. Teaching hand hygiene is time consuming and it can be difficult to generate enthusiasm, but repetition of the technique is critical to learning. As a result, SureWash uses gamification to make training fun and engaging by incorporating a series of levels into learning. Training is delivered in short sessions to encourage a “practice-rest-repeat” technique. This is proven to be the most effective way to integrate the habit of good hand hygiene into the users muscle memory. Above all, we aim to make training and re-training accessible for all at times convenient to employees.
