Engineered Infection Prevention: The Intelligent Self-Disinfecting Hospital


Mar 20, 2019 9:45am ‐ Mar 20, 2019 10:45am


Credits: None available.

Description

Health care-associated infections afflict 1.7 million patients each year in the United States and are a leading cause of death. Up to 80 percent of HAIs may result from microbial transmission through the physical environment: air, water, and surfaces. Engineered infection prevention includes automated technology and materials designed into infrastructure to eliminate microbial transmission. EIP can be a disruptive game-changer. This presentation provides an update on EIP research, technologies, implementation, and standards and knowledge and resources to support EIP design.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Identify opportunities and challenges to design with EIP in new projects and in existing facilities.

2.) Assess the value of adding EIP to health care facilities.

3.) Specify EIP materials and technologies for future projects.

4.) Prioritize EIP interventions based on clinical impact and cost effectiveness.
