Hand Hygiene Auditing

Shared Health, Quality and Learning, in collaboration with all Service Delivery Organizations have worked together to standardize a process for electronic hand hygiene auditing, using the HandyAudit tool.  This work includes standardization of hand hygiene auditing definitions, education, data collection and reporting processes.     

What is HandyAudit?

HandyAudit is an electronic hand hygiene auditing tool with artificial intelligence technology that takes a story-based, evidence-based approach to hand hygiene behavior and removes the subjectivity inherent in traditional auditing tools.  Hand hygiene auditors will record observed hand hygiene behaviour using the HandyAudit application on a touchscreen tablet as they observe staff providing care.  The application makes the determination for the Auditor regarding hand hygiene indication and opportunity compliance.
The HandyAudit application is easy to use.  The data collected will be reported within each SDO and compared with data from the other provincial SDOs. 
Where there is WIFI, the auditor also has access to real time data and may use it to provide on the spot feedback based on the 4 moments for hand hygiene
