GAINESVILLE, Fla., Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- HyGreen, Inc., maker of the first electronic hand hygiene reminding and recording system, announced today a partnership and distribution agreement with Unison Group to build strategic relationships with GPOs and IDNs to market and distribute its HyGreen Hand Hygiene System.
Every year, failure to wash hands causes thousands of deaths in the U.S. as organisms are transmitted from patient to patient via the unwashed hands of healthcare workers. The HyGreen Hand Hygiene System supports the Unison's commitment to safer, cleaner environments by actively reminding healthcare workers to wash before patient contact and wirelessly recording hand hygiene compliance.
Unison has always sought to use supplier diversity to deliver cutting edge solution to the healthcare industry. "Technology will be an increasingly more important solution in the fight against hospital acquired infections," said Michael Stewart, Director of Business Development. "We are committed to helping our hospital partners deliver on their goals to create safe patient environments."
Unison will distribute HyGreen to hospitals and long term care facilities through their growing network of leading GPOs and IDNs. This new agreement provides Unison customers further access to cutting edge products in one of the fastest growing market segments – infection prevention.
"We are pleased to begin this agreement and to provide HyGreen to the customers that Unison serves," said Kevin Quilty, Executive Vice President of HyGreen, Inc. "We look forward to working with Unison to help hospitals lower infections and save lives."
