What we’ve learned from 2020 for sure is that hand hygiene compliance is vital. Back in 2015, our client started a project dedicated to reducing the rates of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). Being a digital healthcare company with a focus on hygienic management, Hyginex came up with an idea of building an innovative IoT environment. The company wanted to leverage wearable technology to provide healthcare workers with actionable feedback on the frequency and quality of hand hygiene via smart wristbands. The idea was to use sensors to track staff’s movements at the medical facility and notify them of the proper timing and duration of hand hygiene events. The client also needed a desktop platform to easily monitor hand hygiene compliance. Our task was to design a robust IoT ecosystem to monitor handwashing events of hospital staff.
