HandyAudit is a revolutionary, academically validated hand hygiene auditing system for recording hand hygiene behaviours.
The system supports both 4 and 5 moments of hand hygiene and works by having auditors record actions using a handheld, touch-screen tool (such as an iPad) to record their observations. These observations are then synchronized to a central computer, where the data is automatically analyzed, reports are generated and trends are highlighted - all at the touch of a button!
The resulting information is invaluable in developing educational initiatives to break poor hand hygiene patterns.
