Patients in Connecticut hospitals, in 2012, caught infections during treatments at rates that were significantly higher than the national average in several key areas, according to the Centers for Disease Control. But, St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford, is teaming up with West Hartford’s iCleanse to ensure their patients’ good health.
iCleanse recently hosted a free disinfection day at St. Francis Hospital. The intent of this event was the raise awareness about the ability of bacteria to linger on the surface of our mobile devices. WSFB ran a feature story on their news at 6 PM.
IT and healthcare professionals got their first look at the iCleanse Duo – and an opportunity to use one to disinfect their own smartphones – at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference & Exhibition, February 29 to March 4, 2016 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas. The iCleanse Duo was a featured product at the exhibit of Futura Mobility, an authorized iCleanse reseller and leading IT services organization specializing in mobile technology solutions for healthcare and enterprise industries.
iCleanse maintained a visible – and commercial – presence at the annual exhibition of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) in Charlotte, NC (June 11 – 13, 2016). Shown here is the iCleanse exhibit, manned professionally and enthusiastically by Gary Beaumont, head of iCleanse's programming staff. The annual APIC conference allows iCleanse to gather hundreds of sales leads and invaluable industry knowledge, feedback, and insight.
With two units on site, iCleanse forms an important part of the state-of-the-art data capture effort at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. The program is part of a multimillion dollar initiative leveraging Information Technology, data capture via iPads, and software backbones from EPIC and CAREVIVE. Use of the iCleanse station and is fully integrated into the Center’s distress screening workflow in this vital immunosuppressed environment where “everything is washed down…and everything that gets touched should be disinfected.”
Sometimes people go to a hospital, and they leave with an infection. A new device being tested at St. Francis Hospital might reduce those infections.
