Cincinnati hospital reduces healthcare-associated infectionsAnderson Hospital and Mercy Hospital-Clermont Health in Cincinnati recently reported exceptional results from their new strategies to reduce healthcare-associated infections by using a product that includes service documentation technology.

The hospital recently implemented a new technology that uses ultraviolet light to eliminate harmful bacteria, becoming the first hospital in Ohio to use the disinfection equipment called the Intelligent Room Sterilization system.

"We already do a tremendous job of reducing the risk of infection to our patients, but we want to do everything we can to provide an even safer environment," said Gayle Heintzelman, site administrator at Clermont Hospital. "The results clearly show that this system makes a difference. Not only are we able to improve the cleaning process with IRiS, we are able to do it while still providing the same high level of service our patients have come to expect."

The IRiS system is distributed by Medline, one of the leading providers of healthcare solutions, which makes supply chain and logistics easier for companies. One useful component of the IRiS product is a system that automatically tracks where, when and by whom the product was used. Utilization tracking not only helps with compliance and management issues, but provides useful data to streamline and economize procurement.

The Washington Regional Medical Center was recently recognized for its supply chain management, proving hospitals are becoming more conscious of savings.
