The only electronic hand hygiene monitoring solution that reminds and coaches at every opportunity while enhancing the patient experience.
Together we can drastically reduce preventable deaths.
One in 25 patients contracts an HAI1
10.4% of patients with HAIs die2
1.7 million patients contract an HAI every year2
75,000 patients with HAIs die during their hospitalizations1
One HAI costs hospitals between $42,000-$60,000 per patient3

Your hand hygiene compliance challenges, solved.
Unlike other electronic hand hygiene solutions, BioVigil provides a gentle reminder sequence on a user-worn badge to perform hand hygiene, if you forget. The combination of these reminders, plus the awareness feature of a green, yellow, and red light, have proven to significantly increase hand hygiene compliance.
- Proven to sustain 97% hand hygiene compliance
- Reduces HAIs by up to 83%
- Increases patient satisfaction from 35th to 97th percentile
- Ensures compliance with new Joint Commission requirements
Enhance Your Patient’s Experience
The colored lights on the BioVigil badge visually communicate hand hygiene compliance to patients and families, providing reassurance that their healthcare worker has clean hands and giving them one less thing to worry about. Every patient interaction should begin with a hand hygiene event and the opportunity to visibly demonstrate a commitment to patient safety and quality of care.
Direct Observation vs Electronic Monitoring
Electronic solutions save time and money for hospitals while exponentially increasing the amount and accuracy of hand hygiene compliance data. A 200-bed hospital might obtain 200 direct observations every month. With BioVigil, hand hygiene events captured can increase to 20,000 a day or 5.8M events a year.

Client and Patient Testimonials
I appreciate the work the Hospital is doing to ensure that people wash their hands before they interact with patients. I feel that my mom is safer and more protected from infections in your hospital.
It’s just astonishing knowing that we would get maybe 1,000 observations in a month- on a really good month- and now we average 25,000 observations a day. Being able to say we have that many and that we know we are over 95% complaint all of the time, and that we can actually prove it now, I think that’s been huge.
The real bonus is the visual reminder of lighted red, yellow and green hands that remind everyone that we are doing all we can to provide a safe environment. The children love the colors and parents are reassured when we walk in the room that "green is clean".
Infection prevention is something that everyone in healthcare needs to promote, and hand hygiene is the most basic and effective measure. The BioVigil system instills confidence in patients and their family members that their caregiver is taking the proper precautions to prevent the spread and transmission of infections.
We have a no tolerance policy, and this is a patient safety initiative. If they do not wear their badge, they are not allowed to work in the patient care areas.
We anticipate a decline in HAIs as the compliance rate of hand hygiene increases. Working towards clean hands at the point of patient care every day and sustaining this practice is a vital part of the patient safety culture change, and key focus of health care policy. It (BioVigil) is a simple, yet critical intervention to keep our patients safe.
Consistent hand hygiene is the single most powerful method to prevent transmission of disease, and our commitment to patient safety and quality-of-care is at the forefront of why we have implemented the BioVigil system.
Our facility is on a path to transform healthcare. Biovigil is one of the tools we have adopted that will help us to create a successful future and bring the highest standards of care to our patients.
An organizational culture focused on patient safety has been critical to our team’s success. Our entire enterprise—from frontline staff to executive leadership—has embraced BioVigil Program, recognizing innovation as key to building on that culture and improving patient care.
Impressive Outcomes, delivered.
