HyGreen, Inc., maker of the first electronic hand hygiene reminding and recording system, announced today a partnership and distribution agreement with HCS-Medical to build strategic relationships with federal healthcare markets and distribute its HyGreen Hand Hygiene System.
Every year, failure to wash hands causes thousands of deaths in the U.S. as organisms are transmitted from patient to patient via the unwashed hands of healthcare workers. The HyGreen Hand Hygiene System actively reminding healthcare workers to wash before patient contact and wirelessly recording hand hygiene compliance, thus supporting HCS-Medical's commitment to help government hospitals focus on patient care while reducing costs and improving efficiencies through providing best in class products.
