Joint Commission and IHI Collaborate

The Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare’s Targeted Solutions Tool™ (TST) for Hand Hygiene is featured in the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI) newest Expedition program: “Impacting Hand Hygiene at the Frontline.” The Expedition’s six web-based sessions,
which begin July 30, 2013, are designed to help more hospitals achieve higher rates of hand washing compliance. While awareness of the importance of hand washing has greatly increased in recent years, compliance rates of 90% to 95%are still the exception rather than the rule.
During the program, representatives from the Center for transforming Healthcare will present the Hand Hygiene TST, and expert faculty from Johns Hopkins Hospital,Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and other organizations will discuss hand
hygiene practices and challenges in health care settings. The Expedition will offer the latest ideas, methods, and systems for increasing hand washing and reducing infections, including better techniques for surveillance, monitoring, measurement, engineering, and education—with a focus on changing behavior and culture.
