The 2011 Frost & Sullivan Western Europe New Product Innovation Award in Hand Hygiene Compliance Monitoring is presented to OPHARDT hygiene for ingo-man® Weco.

Several hand hygiene compliance monitoring (HHCM) solutions have been introduced in the market since the latter half of 2010. Some of the challenges such systems face are installation and running costs, compatibility with Euro standards, and transitioning to technologies utilised by these systems.

"In contrast, OPHARDT hygiene's ingo-man® Weco is the only product available in Western Europe that utilises manual dispensers, green technology and group monitoring technology that works on existing Wi-Fi systems within the hospital," notes Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Beulah Devadason.

Hand hygiene monitoring solutions require some form of identification and communication technology as well as compliance reporting. Competitors use RLTS and RFID technologies to identify and relay hand hygiene events to a central database from where clients can access specific reports.

"OPHARDT hygiene's innovative HHCM system uses existing Wi-Fi networks to communicate the occurrence of a hand hygiene event to their central server and the client can access web-based reports specific to each dispenser, bed, room or ward," explains Devadason.

OPHARDT hygiene offers several value-added features and benefits through its HHCM system that distinguish it as the leader in this field.

"Through its product, the company enables group monitoring that eliminates the possibility of resentment among HCWs and encourages hand hygiene practices among the whole group without controlling individuals," says Devadason. "Dispensers are manual and require no battery changes or power source. Therefore, they can be placed at convenient locations aiding increased compliance." Through its leverage of green technology, energy generated by the manual operation of the dispenser is used to transmit the hand hygiene event to the central server. The dispensers can accommodate Euro-standard compliant bottles, allowing hospitals to switch between more or less expensive filling products without having to replace their dispensing systems. Moreover, OPHARDT hygiene is a leading manufacturer of dispensers and existing users can easily switch to its monitoring systems, eliminating the need for structural changes.

OPHARDT hygiene is the undisputed leader in terms of offering increased ROI for clients. As it works on existing Wi-FI networks, OPHARDT hygiene's HHCM system supports considerably lower per unit costs than competing automated monitoring dispensers. Moreover, since the systems are manually operated and use green technology for transmitting information, energy consumption is lower and running costs are minimal.

"The entire product line of OPHARDT hygiene's solutions for infection control are designed, developed, manufactured and distributed in-house," concludes Devadason. "This assures clients of quality, reliability and customer support unmatched by any of its competitors in the Western European market."

The New Product Innovation Award is presented to the company for excelling in innovative element of the product, leveraging leading edge technologies in product, for value added features/benefits and for increasing customer ROI.
