Hand Hygiene Tracking Prototype Development

SafeContact is a Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI) prevention and reduction Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) company. We are tackling the global HAI epidemic by tracking the source of HAI spread using a unique technological concept in the marketplace. SafeContact is building a smart healthcare platform that combines traditional techniques with the latest advancements in technology: Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things devices, Big Data, and Machine Learning to monitor hand hygiene behavior for lasting impact on patient safety. This project will assist SafeContact with prototyping to track hand hygiene events in a healthcare setting. The completion of this project will allow SafeContact to secure Venture Capital to commercialize the hand hygiene methodology and business model, which will benefit not only Alberta but also other provinces. While initially targeting at healthcare services, eventually this platform will be available in other sectors, e.g. restaurants and other food supply chains, worldwide, bringing economic and technological benefits to Canada.
