AiRISTA – RTLS Hand Hygiene
The AiRISTA Hand Hygiene Solution enables intelligent observation across all dispenser types and department protocols. Here’s how it works:
Caregivers wear a durable Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) tag that monitors whenever they walk into a patient room. In the room, a separate device checks the caregiver’s hand hygiene status.
If they haven’t washed their hands for a user definable period, the tag alerts them with a reminder.
Whenever a caregiver uses a gel sanitizer or soap dispenser, a corresponding node on the dispenser recognizes their tag by proximity, recording the hand hygiene event.
The AiRISTA dashboard also collects real-time and historic data to further drill down into hand hygiene processes and compliance rates, whether for the entire department or individual staff.
Our robust suite of hand hygiene monitoring solutions includes innovative RTLS devices and software, such as:
WiFi + BLE B4n Personnel Tags
AiRISTA’s B4n badge tag enables two-way communication, alerting, real-time location tracking and remote programming capabilities. This allows healthcare organizations to monitor the movement and hand hygiene activity of staff in addition to sending notifications.
Hand Sanitizer and Soap Dispenser Sensors
The A1 BLE tag is a small, low cost beacon that is easily integrated with any gel or soap dispenser model. An internal accelerometer accurately detects when a dispense occurs, correlating the event with the hand hygiene status of the nearest healthcare worker.
AiRISTA compiles all of this data to unlock detailed insight into your facility’s hand hygiene compliance rate. This allows you to act fast and intervene when hand washing becomes an issue, helping to reduce the spread of infection.
Sofia – AiRISTA’s Hand Hygiene Monitoring Solution
Sofia is AiRISTA’s intelligent observation platform designed specifically for healthcare providers. As part of our hand hygiene monitoring system, sofia automatically collects real-time and historic data with multilevel dashboards to drill down into specific compliance and behavioral insights.
The user-friendly interface and comprehensive visibility provide an easy way to manage and monitor RTLS information from a single location. With this centralized view of granular data, you can identify problem areas and develop proactive practices to improve hand hygiene compliance across the board.
Increasing Compliance from 65% to 85%
A 240 bed regional medical center deployed the AiRISTA sofia Hand Hygiene Compliance solution for all staff and 900 gel dispensers.
The solution spanned all patient rooms, treatment rooms, common areas, restrooms and food service areas within the healthcare facility.
After deployment, the compliance rate went from an estimated 65% to a documented 89% in the first six months.
Key areas of improvement were readily identified as well as trends to lower compliance by certain shifts or groups (i.e. late shift trailed day shift).
