Strong demand for hand hygiene monitoring system “from one source”
Issum, August 13th, 2012. Since early June, the OPHARDT Hygiene Monitoring System® (OHMS) is available as part of the OPHARDT hygiene product range. The new complete system for hand hygiene monitoring has already been purchased and installed by a number of clinics and hospitals.
“We are delighted with the high level of demand for OHMS. As a one-stop solution provider for hand hygiene monitoring, we develop, manufacture, service and support all hardware (including the dispenser), software and user interface aspects of our products in-house. OHMS offers our customers a distinct advantage over other products, which are designed merely as “add-ons” or combine products from different manufacturers,” explains Kristina Ophardt, Product Manager Hygiene Compliance Solutions.
The complete OHMS solution for the sustainable improvement of hand hygiene in hospitals, clinics and doctor’s surgeries has been recognised with the prestigious Frost & Sullivan “Best Practices Award 2011”.
OHMS offers unique features:
– Extensive options to evaluate the actual hand hygiene behaviour
– Fully automated data transfer (“WiFi”)
– Continuous monitoring of dispenser functionality
– Alarm function with automatic warning when bottle needs to be changed
– “Green Technology”: The energy required for data transfer is generated in the dispenser by the user. No batteries or additional power supply is required
The OPHARDT hygiene group develops, manufactures and distributes a complete range of dispensing systems and complete hygiene solutions to implement the highest hygiene standards in the areas of health care, commercial food processing as well as in public washrooms and sanitary facilities. In seven locations worldwide more than 300 employees work day by day to implement the guiding principle “making the world a more hygienic place”.
