Overview

Numerous clinical studies that have taken place worldwide emphatically underline the key role hand hygiene plays in infection control and its financial impact on Hospitals. Research indicates that up to 50% of HIA’s are caused by poor hand hygiene.

SureWash has delivered increases in hand hygiene compliance rates by as much as 50%

By gamifying the learning technique, SureWash develops psychomotor skills and have delivered increases in hand hygiene compliance rates by as much as 50% when incorporated into a multimodal approach. Ultimately this not only saves organisations time, money and productivity but has a very real impact in improving patient outcomes.

Features

Reporting and monitoring in real time

The technology behind SureWash incorporates an RFID badge reader and record management system. This means it can identity staff members level of compliance and participation on an ongoing basis. The system incorporates varying degrees of reporting and real time monitoring. For example, it can highlight the degree of competency staff are demonstrating x technique type, both on a universal – hospital wide or ward level – or individual basis. Comparative data is also available, for example between teams of staff, different wards and so on. The Software is available in multiple languages and can be updated as necessary with customised/varying messages. This keeps staff members engaged and they can be updated on new messages the hospital management wants to deliver to them.

Compliance & Certification

Because the SureWash terminals can be linked to our Online Monitoring system, hand hygiene training records are automatically saved for submission to quality certification bodies.

Gamification

Usage data can also be used in an Action Research or community of practice improvement methodology to have groups of staff set and attain improvement goals. Goals and an associated leaderboard can be used to drive local contest and challenges which motivate engagement with training.

Tailored Multimedia Content & Scheduling

All SureWash systems connect to the SureWash.net platform. Users can amalgamate records and reports across multiple machines, design and build their own multimedia content and questionnaires for deployment, generate schedules and program plans, access user guides and FAQ’s, update their machines with the latest software and content modules, access marketing collateral and issue certification documents to encourage engagement with the target audience.

Secure Data stored in the cloud for ease of access

While all of the data is stored securely within the units themselves, signing up to our Cloud solution means you have immediate access at all times to records updated in real time.

Hand hygiene improvement among patients and visitors

Infection control is a shared concern and SureWash Elite can be used to engage patients and family members in a conversation about hand hygiene and infection control issues. Patients find the training and engagement a positive experience. An associated range of signage can be used to engage users in independent learning kiosks.

Technology

Hand Hygiene meets Augmented Reality

Traditionally, most hospitals and infection control officers manage their hand hygiene programs through a mixture of sporadic video presentations or training courses.

The SureWash system is a combination of an e-learning system, gamification and patented gesture recognition technology that is physically present in the hospital 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The gesture recognition technology evaluates the users hand washing technique in a structured series of washing methodologies and ensures that hand hygiene is performed according to the WHO effective Hand Hygiene technique.

Through continuous, day-to-day training, users very quickly progress to the highest standards of hand hygiene management through muscle memory learning. Clinical trials conducted in real world scenarios concluded that the use of Gaming technology not only improved technique, but also had a positive impact on compliance with overall hand hygiene as measured by monthly audits of ‘5 moments’ using WHO recommended audit tool.

How it works

The live video image is shown to users on a large screen and the image overlaid with real time feedback on their progress (augmented reality). In addition to measuring the motions of the hands in accordance with the WHO protocol they can optionally measure the size of the hands and if staff are “bare to the elbow”

FAQs

Hand hygiene training is time consuming to deliver, hard to standardize and it can be difficult to generate staff enthusiasm to attend a class. SureWash is a mobile system that brings training to the staff no matter where they are in the hospital. SureWash uses gesture recognition technology to automate the training, allowing staff, patients and visitors to train independently at any time of the day or night.

SureWash is the only technology scientifically validated to train on the WHO hand hygiene protocol (HUG paper, RCSI paper). As part of a multi-modal campaign it has been show to improve the bacterial load on hands and the “5 moments” compliance (Mater paper). The WHO hand hygiene protocol has been shown to more than twice as effective at killing germs as normal unstructured hand hygiene (GCU paper).

There are some examples of people who currently use SureWash to deliver best in class hand hygiene risk management featured on the website on both the About and Product pages.

SureWash uses cutting edge games technology and innovative learning approaches to deliver scientifically validated learning outcomes in hand hygiene. The incremental difficulty levels and the “Practice-Rest-Repeat” learning approach used in SureWash delivers optimal learning and retention of good hand hygiene skill.

The traditional “glow box” approach uses gel coverage as a proxy for effectiveness but scientific results show it is actually a poor proxy for microbiological effectiveness (GCU paper). The glow box learning approach is not suited to training a psychomotor skill .

SureWash aims to be a best in class hand hygiene training simulator and is guided by the latest scientific literature. We know that hand hygiene is important for removing germs but if done poorly parts of the hands are missed and the pathogens survive e.g.

SureWash uses advanced sensors and typical game elements such as real-time feedback, formative and summative scoring, incremental difficulty levels and micro-learning quizzes harnesses people’s competitive streak. This structure builds a good-natured competitive atmosphere in hand hygiene and infection control.

SureWash provides specialized training that explicitly empowers patients and visitors to train in infection prevention alongside staff. Kids in particular love to use SureWash. Empowering patients and visitors with knowledge of Infection Prevention allows them to be active participants in their care and play their part in reducing the risk of HAIs in hospitals and reduces the risk of infections when they get home.

To support the integration of the SureWash system we provide one day of on-site consulting to train staff on design and implementation of their Hand Hygiene and infection control risk management program and launch SureWash to the hospital site. For three years post sales SureWash provides remote system support via the Internet. SureWash will provide new learning features each year via annual updates of the software.

SureWash is highly customisable to the individual needs of the IPC team or the administration itself. Firstly the micro-learning quizzes can be written by the IPC team using an online tool at www.surewash.net. The quiz is designed online and then loaded onto the SureWash units via WIFI or using a special USB key. Results from these custom quizzes are included in the standard SureWash reports. SureWash has a number of ways in which administrators can customise the protocol. The system can optionally enforce “bare to the elbow” by detecting sleeves and large watches. The system can also add an additional step of wrist cleaning which is standard practice in the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. The graphics displayed on the system “home screen” can be customised to acknowledge sponsors, etc and to drive engagement via leader-boards and goal targets. SureWash can be further customised to deliver the core learning content in multiple languages. In addition to English, language packs are available in French, Spanish and German. New languages can be developed on request.

Staff have a number of ways to log into SureWash. SureWash can use a hospital’s RFID identity cards to allow staff to log in. Staff can the touch screen keyboard to type a user name (e.g. their email address or staff ID number). Fingerprint readers are an option if there is no staff ID system in place.

SureWash provides comprehensive reports on who has trained, their pass rates, the poses proving difficult, the time of day training has occurred etc. Reports can optionally show a photograph of the hands to verify compliance with nail and jewelry guidelines. The reports can be used for internal reporting for Infection Prevention and Control or Quality Control purposes or to provide data to regulatory bodies such as Joint Commission, CQC, etc. These reports are available in Microsoft Excel format allowing them to be incorporated into other documents and the raw data is available for further analysis or research purposes. SureWash can provide a summary of the activity level of each system via email to a nominated contact in each hospital.
