|20150035678||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MONITORING A DISPENSER OF HAND HYGIENE PRODUCTS - Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a system and method for using a hand hygiene compliance (HHC) system to monitor compliance with hand hygiene protocols. More specifically, preferred embodiments of the HHC system include an electronic sensor configured to monitor use of a hand hygiene dispenser. The sensor preferably attaches to a lever on the hand hygiene dispenser and includes motion sensing devices such as, without limitation, gyroscopes and accelerometers. In preferred embodiments, motion sensing devise on the sensor detect motion of the lever when a person applies a force to the lever in order to cause the hand hygiene dispenser to dispense a hand hygiene product. Further, upon receiving data indicating motion of the lever, the hand hygiene compliance system correlates movement of the lever with an amount of hand hygiene product dispensed onto the person's hands.||02-05-2015|
|20140354436||SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR USING A HAND HYGIENE COMPLIANCE SYSTEM TO IMPROVE WORKFLOW - A hand hygiene compliance (HHC) system that, in addition to monitoring hand hygiene, provides messaging and asset tracking capabilities to improve workflow amongst employees working at a facility. In one embodiment, the HHC system includes a control unit associated with a hand hygiene dispenser and programmed to enable use of one or more icons each time the control unit detects use of the hand hygiene dispenser by an individual, wherein the icons allow the individual to, without limitation, enter or update a pain status indicator that is representative of a patient's response to a pain status inquiry event. More specifically, the icons are displayed on a feedback device associated with the control unit, and users select the icons by physically touching the feedback device. In alternative embodiments, the control unit includes a gesture sense system which allows users to select icons without touching the feedback device.||12-04-2014|
|20140214449||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR POWERING, COMMUNICATING, AND STORING DATA FOR ACCESSORY DEVICES USING A DEVICE UTILIZATION SYSTEM - The present disclosure relates to a system and method for providing a power source, a communications link, and data storage for accessory devices. In a preferred embodiment, a control unit of a hand hygiene compliance system provides a power source, a communications link, and data storage for accessory devices in a room or area of a healthcare facility. In this particular embodiment, the control unit receives power from an offline power source and has a communications module to communicate with a server over a communications network associated with the hand hygiene compliance system. Also, the control unit is further comprised of a port for DC power and data communications that is accessible to accessory devices. As follows, upon receiving data from an accessory device via the port, the control unit is operable to communicate data to the server for storage on a database.||07-31-2014|
|20140191726||System and Method for Powering and Monitoring an Automated Battery Powered Dispenser - A system and method for powering and monitoring use of battery powered automated dispensers is provided. In one embodiment, a pseudo battery assembly comprised of a pseudo battery and a plurality of battery spacers powers and monitors use of an automated hand hygiene dispenser. More specifically, the pseudo battery receives an external power supply from a control unit that is part of a hand hygiene compliance (HHC) system, wherein the pseudo battery is operable to distribute the power to the dispenser and detect use thereof with a sensor. Further, a feedback device associated with the control unit is operable to display an alarm or notification once the dispenser has been used a predetermined amount of times. In other embodiments, the pseudo battery assembly powers and monitors use of battery powered automated dispensers, such as an automated towel dispenser or an automated gloves dispenser.||07-10-2014|
|20140009292||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MONITORING HOSPITAL WORKFLOW COMPLIANCE WITH A HAND HYGIENE NETWORK - A system and method for monitoring compliance with a plurality of workflow procedures in a hospital or other health care facility using a hand hygiene compliance system (HHC). A control unit of an HHC gathers data based on the presence, identification, and movement of a plurality of assets, including persons, equipment, or supplies, each having wearable detectable tags, such as RFID tags, and communicates that data to a local or remote server. The server is programmed to monitor or cause compliance with hospital workflow procedures relevant to the communicated data, such as rounding requirements and proper use of equipment, or may generate alarms or notifications where a workflow procedure has not been followed.||01-09-2014|
|20130261795||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DISABLING OR ENABLING AUTOMATED DISPENSERS - A system and method for disabling or enabling automated dispensers based upon data received by a server or a control unit. In one embodiment, the system disables automated dispensers in a room of a medical facility based upon health condition data of a patient resident in the room. In another embodiment, the system enables automated dispensers upon receipt of data identifying user types authorized to use the dispenser that are associated with wearable tags in proximity to the dispensers. In still another embodiment, the system controls the order in which automated dispensers are enabled in order to facilitate compliance with workflow procedures for a facility.||10-03-2013|
|20130120120||SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR USING A HAND HYGIENE COMPLIANCE SYSTEM TO IMPROVE WORKFLOW - A hand hygiene compliance (HHC) system that, in addition to monitoring hand hygiene, provides messaging and asset tracking capabilities to improve workflow amongst employees working at a facility. In one embodiment, the HHC system includes a control unit that is associated with a hand hygiene dispenser and programmed to enable use of a menu of icons each time the control unit detects use of the hand hygiene dispenser by as individual, wherein the icons allow the individual to, without limitation, communicate, enter, obtain, or update workflow information. More specifically, the menu of icons is displayed on a feedback device associated with the control unit, and users select icons by physically touching the feedback device. Alternatively, the control unit includes a gesture sense system which allows users to select one or more icons via touch-free gestures.||05-16-2013|
|20100123560||METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DETECTING AND IDENTIFYING DEVICE UTILIZATION - A system and method for detecting the presence of a device user, managing a detection system in a predominantly low power state, ensuring data integrity and limiting the amount of user interaction required to identify users and detect device utilization includes a distinct user tag or badge including an active or passive RFID transceiver and one or more readers and routers in a network.||05-20-2010|
