bioVIGIL to Preview Its Integrated Hand Hygiene System at APIC 2011

Visit Booth 826 to Evaluate This Simple, Low Cost and Alternative Approach to Dispenser or RTLS-Based Systems

ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) -

bioVIGIL, the company that reduces healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) through enhanced hand washing compliance, will be exhibiting at the upcoming Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Annual Educational Conference taking place at the Baltimore Convention Center June 27-June 29, 2011. The APIC 2011 Annual Conference is the most comprehensive annual conference dedicated to infection prevention clinical education. bioVIGIL will be demonstrating in Booth No. 826 its third-generation hand hygiene compliance system that it is now piloting.

Unlike most other hand washing compliance systems that use sanitizer / dispenser based platforms, bioVIGIL uses a small wearable device where there is no need for complex and costly system conversions making it easy for health systems and health care providers to achieve 95+% compliance within days without any work-flow change or interruptions.

As important, the bioVIGIL system provides real-time conformation to patients and families that proper hand hygiene compliance has been performed with each and every patient interaction.

bioVGIL invites those infection preventionists thinking about a hand hygiene compliance system as part of a current (or future) infection prevention strategy to visit Booth 826 and examine a complete paradigm shift on how to tackle the complex HAI challenge.
