About the KHC HIIN Hand Hygiene Collaborative

In May 2019, KHC launched a second cohort of the KHC HIIN Hand Hygiene collaborative to help hospitals track and improve hand hygiene.  Education, coaching, peer-to-peer collaboration, an online toolkit, list-serv, and comparative data reports are offered to help hospitals improve clinical practices and care processes.  In addition, with HIIN funding and in partnership with Qualaris Healthcare Solutions, KHC is able to offer a easy-to-use mobile software tool for each participating hospital to use at no cost for capturing real-time data for hand hygiene observations.
