Proventix to Attend APIC, Congratulates Clients for APIC Abstract and Poster Presentations


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Proventix Systems, Inc. of Birmingham, AL will feature their nGage™ quality monitoring system during the annual Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, June 8-10. Proventix will host a reception at "The Patio" located in The Renaissance Cruise Port Hotel on Saturday, June 8 from 6-8 p.m. APIC attendees are invited to join Proventix for a casual and fun gathering including food and drinks, conversation with Proventix users and company representatives, and demonstrations of Proventix's nGage system.



Proventix client hospitals will exhibit eight abstract poster presentations and one oral abstract presentation at the APIC conference. APIC attendees are encouraged to visit each of these presentations to see how hospitals are achieving improved quality of care and hand hygiene compliance through a combination of information technology, leadership, and behavior modification. "Proventix congratulates our partners in excellence for their recognition as leaders in quality improvement," said Harvey Nix, Proventix chief executive officer. "Hand hygiene is a keystone behavior that can have rippling effects on many other quality events in a hospital. These nine abstract presentations provide real examples of the effects that hand hygiene compliance improvements can have on the quality of care a hospital delivers. These hospitals have experienced reductions in healthcare associated infections (HAIs), reductions in length of stay, and increases in total direct cost savings."



Proventix created the nGage system, an RFID technology solution that leverages active and passive RFID technology to give hospitals objective performance ratings based on their delivery of keystone behaviors to lead to optimal patient outcomes. Beginning with hand hygiene and then expanding services to include hourly rounding, quality monitoring, and workflow improvement, Proventix provides the analytics and action plans needed for hospitals to maximize their resources and minimize never events and inefficient processes. The nGage system is currently installed in hospitals across the United States and, with over 28 million hand hygiene events captured, Proventix continues to gather significant amounts of data for studies to support the nGage system.
