Lincor And Proventix Form Partnership To Improve Hand Hygiene

DUBLIN, February 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, Lincor Solutions, the leaders in point-of-care computing and Proventix, a ground-breaking supplier of healthcare hand hygiene technology, have announced a technology partnership aimed to improve healthcare quality and patient safety.

Proventix created nGage through the development of radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology as a point-of-care compliance monitoring system. nGage is designed to ensure hospital staff and encourage hospital visitors follow hand hygiene standards to help prevent the spread of infection.

Lincor's MEDIVista platform is accessed via a clinical grade, touch screen terminal at every bedside that is used by the patient, doctors, nurses and other hospital staff.

" The integration between nGage and MEDIVista will ensure that hospital staff will not be able to use the bedside terminal to access clinical applications unless they have satisfactorily cleaned their hands, " said Enda Murphy, chief technology officer and co-founder of Lincor Solutions .    " Our hardware and software already have features to minimize the risk of infection, but the addition of nGage takes this protection to an entirely new level. With their dedication to reducing hospital infections, combined with innovative technology, Proventix allow Lincor to offer unique levels of hygiene in the point of care computing market. "

" We at Proventix are passionate about protecting patients from healthcare-associated infections by ensuring health professionals follow the highest standard of hand hygiene, " said Harvey Nix, CEO and founder of Proventix, " and we are actively looking to partner with companies that share our vision. Lincor is an ideal partner for us as they are already working in quality care improvement.  We are excited about the prospect of working with them and sharing our vision with their network of global customers. "

Proventix client Shannon Medical Center of San Angelo, Texas was awarded the Healthcare Informatics Innovator Award for their use of the nGage system to improve the quality of healthcare delivered in their facility. Shannon will be recognized at the HIMSS 2013 Conference for their 62% reduction of healthcare-associated infections in a six-month period through use of the system.

Lincor will be demonstrating this integrated solution throughout HIMSS 2013 annual conference, at booth #3811, from March 4 th-7 th.
