Los Angeles, CA, October 02, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Electronic hand hygiene compliance solution, Hyginex will be an exhibitor at IDWeek 2013(TM), sponsored by SHEA, IDSA, HIVMA and PIDS in San Francisco, California October 3-5.

The Hyginex Solution is committed to eliminating hospital acquired infections (HAIs) by promoting proper hand hygiene protocol. Hyginex provides real-time feedback to healthcare workers through a patent pending wristband and compiles compliance data into detailed reports. The system is currently implemented in leading hospitals in Israel and will be in major U.S. academic hospitals by the end of 2013.

The CDC and WHO have shown that proper hand hygiene is the most important way to reduce HAIs that account for nearly 100,000 deaths annually in the U.S. and cost hospitals more than $30 billion.

The Hyginex solution is the most effective way to monitor hand hygiene compliance with minimal intrusion and maximum result. The Hyginex Solution is the only hand hygiene technology that eliminates false positives by tracking all hospital staff members’ hand hygiene events on an individual basis. Hyginex registers more complete and accurate information than unreliable manual observations, and most importantly, it provides data on wash quality and duration that RFID based solutions do not.

The Hyginex team will be at Booth 517 to answer questions and provide product demos.
