Hospitals participating in the KHC HIIN are invited to collaborate in improving hand hygiene within their organizations. Join with the Kansas Healthcare Collaborative, Qualaris Healthcare Solutions and other Kansas hospitals in a hand hygiene collaborative.
When your hospital enrolls in the KHC Hand Hygiene Collaborative, your organization will receive access to KHC-sponsored software, education, coaching and support for your hospital's hand hygiene program. There is no cost to KHC HIIN hospitals to participate.
Upon enrollment, a Qualaris Healthcare Solutions representative will contact you to provide your organization with access to the software via a secure, encrypted website. You also will receive an individualized consultation to customize the simple hand hygiene data collection tool to meet your facility's needs. There is no software to download or install and no I.T. requirements to launch. No free text or protected health information will be collected via the website. Hospitals may opt out of using the Qualaris tool. All participating hospitals are expected to submit monthly hand hygiene surveillance data to NHSN or QHi.
