More than any other type of facility, Healthcare organizations are under enormous pressure to maintain both cleanliness (appearance) and sanitary conditions. In fact, sanitation is becoming a key concern for all medical related facilities. INFORMED understands the unique workflow processes that produces sanitary conditions
Our Healthcare Core is designed to assist organizations in reducing costly outbreaks and meet increasingly stringent regulations. INFORMED ES Software aids with developing balanced work assignments leading to reduced worker turnover. We at INFORMED continually research infection control protocols and hospital bench-marking studies such as this one published by AHE, Association for Healthcare Environment. You can be assured, we know what it takes to clean a hospital. Our experts studied and incorporated task and process recommendations set forth by the CDC here in the US, as well as the Ontario Provincial Infectious Disease Advisory Committee and others. Our cleaning software allows a choice of standards, or you can completely and easily customize your own tasks and times.
Our goal at INFORMED is to help you get an easy start using our software. One important note, we have many government-run facilities that have special install requirements and can license with or without an internet connection.
Increased Cleaning Costs = Decreased Overall Costs
Yes, it takes more time to do the job properly and we're as tired of hearing about the budget wars as you are. Given the costs of HAIs, its probably obvious that decreasing them saves money, but very few consider how much money can be saved by spending more time on each room, following best practice guidance, and then inspecting the work to ensure it's done properly.
We've created a little spreadsheet 'calculator' you may download and then pop in your own numbers and see for yourself. Perhaps it may help you convince the CFO that it's "no-brainer" to increase expenditures in cleaning since it saves money. It turns out with any reasonable assumptions, the cost of HAIs swamp the costs of cleaning labor, consumables, inspections (to ensure compliance) and, of course, software such as ours..
