Achieving Efficiency in Healthcare Workflow: Challenges & Opportunities

Thursday, November 20, 2014, 11:00 a.m. EST, 10:00 a.m. CST

Efficient clinical workflow is becoming a top priority in healthcare facilities. With the growing complexity of quality issues in today's healthcare environment, it’s time to take a deeper look into what is causing them and how they can be solved, beginning with building a better understanding of clinical workflow itself.

Antimicrobial Copper: New Evidence and Lessons from an Early Adopter

Thursday, November 6, 2014, 1:00 p.m. EST, 12:00 p.m. CST

The hospital built environment is a significant contributor to the acquisition of healthcare associated infections (HAIs).  Hand washing, cleaning, and disinfecting surfaces within the built environment are critical to mitigating transmission of microbes. However, these solutions rely on human behavior and expensive equipment, and offer no protection in between uses. The use of continuously active antimicrobial copper surfaces is a cost-effective solution that can significantly reduce the acquisition of HAIs without increasing staff responsibilities or operating costs.

Join Janet Brown as she shares data from the three-year Healthier Hospitals Initiative, designed to accelerate the environmental movement in health care with the use of data to demonstrate the win-win opportunities for any hospital, regardless of size or location. 

Clinical Evidence for the Use of Copper Touch Surfaces in Healthcare

Thursday, September 19, 2013 2:00 PM EDT, 1:00 PM CDT

This webinar will present the details of a clinical study recently published in the medical journal Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, which demonstrated that the use of metallic copper touch surfaces can reduce the incidence of hospital-acquired infections. By killing disease-causing bacteria, Antimicrobial Copper can keep healthcare environments cleaner without the need for healthcare worker behavior changes.
