Healthcare consultancy and care management organization Qualis Health has published an online tool kit that provides hospitals a practical, low-cost approach to engaging patients and families in infection control.

"Tested and refined in real-world environments at multiple hospitals, the tool kit provides a step-by-step road map for implementing an innovative 'hand hygiene huddle' with patients and their families early in a hospital stay," states the Seattle-based company in a written statement.

Features include a step-by-step implementation road map with linked resources, commentary from subject matter experts, and videos of hospital teams describing their implementation successes.

"Across the healthcare system, providers and policymakers are looking for solutions that can improve outcomes and make care delivery more patient-centered," says Jonathan Sugarman, M.D., president and CEO of Qualis Health. "The hand hygiene huddle is a practical, low-cost, frontline driven approach to engaging patients and families in a hospital's infection prevention efforts."

The toolkit is available here.
