Sustainable impact to the quality of care

Our novel light-based products provide healthcare facilities with the fastest, data-driven, sustainable solutions for infection prevention.What is the true impact of hospital-acquired infections?
A new era of value-based healthcare is focused on quality.
In order to improve care, lower costs and improve operational margins for payers and providers we must implement infection prevention precautions.
1 in 20 patients will contract a hospital-acquired infection (HAI) during their stay
Infections not only harm patient health and trust but also hospital profits. Additional care due to infection is rarely fully paid for. Lower the infection rate and you’ll see healthier patients and economic savings.

Why embrace new infection prevention methods?
Limitations of today’s tools
Everything is done by hand
Thousands of surfaces to cover
No room for human error
Increased pathogen resistance to antibiotics and cleaning agents
Surfaces remain contaminated for months at a time
New laws (section 2819) require public reports on performance
Patient has a choice in facilities
HAIs add 8-19 days length of stay
Medicare reimbursement is withheld from hospitals with the highest HAIs
Healthcare needs a solution.
