A new system is able to provide immediate notification of non-compliant hand hygiene events.

The IntelligentM System involves healthcare workers wearing Smartbands, which interact with RFID and Bluetooth tags on sanitizer and soap dispensers, and equipment such as IV packaging.

The IntelligentM System is able to provide on-the-spot notification of non-compliant hand hygiene events for both “how” healthcare workers perform hand washing and sanitizing, as well as “when” they should be washing/sanitizing. The Smartbands vibrate once for a compliant hand washing/sanitizing and three times for a non-compliant event.

The system does not connect to a facility’s IT system or need a WiFi network.
