seems so elementary, yet it is widely under-performed. Both the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have invested heavily in their hand-hygiene campaigns to get not only the public, but also healthcare employees, to properly clean and care for their hands. These two organizatiions believe that billions of dollars and thousands of lives can be saved if proper hand-hygiene guidelines are followed better.
Healthcare organizations know that in order to improve something, it must be measured. The Computational Epidemiology Research Group from the University of Iowa has launched an iPhone/iPad application to help healthcare workers quickly and easily record observational data on hand-hygiene performance, and then upload the data to a spreadsheet to measure it.
