Cox Communications Adds Hand Hygiene Monitoring to Prosight RTLS Platform

Cox Communications added hand hygiene monitoring capabilities to its Cox Prosight real-time location services (RTLS) platform.

Cox Prosight’s hand hygiene monitoring capabilities will allow hospitals to observe hand hygiene events, according 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.

Leveraging RTLS and Cox’s Prosight Core 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.
