New system uses predictive technology to alert staff that dispensers should be refilled
Gojo has launched Smartlink Service Alerts, an Internet of Things solution that through the use of predictive analytics, helps to ensure hand soap and hand sanitiser are always available for critical hand hygiene events in a healthcare facility.
Smartlink Service Alerts is designed to provide a healthcare facility's staff with real-time monitoring of refill status, battery life, communication and dispenser status for Gojo dispensers. This new technology, which is easily integrated with the Smartlink Hand Hygiene Monitoring system, improves operational efficiencies by saving labour time and costs and provides enhanced inventory management, which results in reduced product waste.
The solution works by collecting usage and status data for each Gojo-monitored device. Gojo technology then collates this information and sends not only real-time updates, but also predicts via web portal, email or mobile device, when a dispenser will need to be refilled. This data allows a healthcare facility's staff to focus on just-in-time inventory planning and reduce waste by knowing the exact date of when a new refill will be needed.
"Ensuring soap and alcohol-based hand sanitiser are always available at the point of care in critical care settings helps to reduce the spread of infection," says John Lerner, Smartlink Solutions business development vice president, Gojo. "Designed with the user in mind, this new and innovative solution allows those using this technology to have complete visibility to a dispenser's status to ensure the dispenser is always filled and in good working order."
