Hospital Acquired Infections represent $9.8 billion dollars in preventable healthcare costs annually in the US. The primary vector for these costs are hospital staff members not washing their hands.
For hospital administrations that aim to reduce hospital re-admissions and the rising costs of healthcare, the MEDTRAQ handwashing compliance system provides a light weight solution to capturing event data within a hospital allowing administration to build a pattern of hand washing compliance and accountability.
Unlike the few competitors who are installing large and clunky detection hardware in hospital rooms, MEDTRAQ uses small low energy beacons that interact with smart devices that a staff member already carries.
Leveraging the internet of things, Bluetooth Low Energy, and cloud computing technologies we can seamlessly deliver all hospital event data to our clients and the change the way we approach the problem of rising healthcare costs in the US.
