Indus Hospital and Health Network’s (IHHN) handwashing data app which streamlines handwashing data and promotes hand hygiene has been given a Gold Award at “The Patient Safety Conference 2022” held by Informa Market in Dubai. Sixteen countries participated in the Conference and a total number of 72 papers were shortlisted for this event.
The Infection Control Department of IHHN invented this web application to streamline data collection of handwashing observations and make this process paperless. This application has been operational since 2019 and is being used to collect and manage surveys related to handwashing and hygiene practices amongst health workers. IHHN is proud of its Infection Control Department and believes innovation and data-driven decision-making are essential in tackling Pakistan’s public healthcare challenges.
