Newtown, Pa.-based CenTrak, an RTLS provider, released its new Hand Hygiene Compliance System that automatically collects compliance and non-compliance data for dispensers, canisters and sinks to track usage.

The system automatically captures a specific caregiver’s badge ID and entry to and exit from patient care areas along with hand hygiene events, based upon hospital determined compliance business rules, says the company. All of the recorded data is stored on CenTrak’s local or hosted server and can be accessed by third party compliance management and reporting solutions, it adds.
