An optional Smart Button™ is under development by HandScan to gather and report data on an individual basis. It features a color change indicator to remind staff members to wash according to existing policy. The system will include a Smart Badge Contol Center for easy recharging.
This HandScan solution also uniquely tracks the process of handwashing as well as the frequency. Controlling the wash time provides a good indicator on the quality of the wash. See ProGrade. HandScan feels strongly that staff should first be coached to wash effectively before building frequency on its path of continuous improvement.
The current avalability of this option is restricted. New customers for this version will be accepted in the third quarter of 2018 acording to their management.
