Environmental and Patient Surveillance
Hospitals are a perfect storm for infections to occur because susceptible patients are housed together with contagious patients, and microbes are pervasive— even after cleaning. Major sources of HAI’s include the environment and the patient’s own microbiome. Since no good technology exists to surveil, hospitals clean blindly and wait until patients get sick before implementing, brute force methods and interventions.
The solution is active surveillance, using Biotia technology, to identify and stop pathogens and antimicrobial resistance before patients get HAIs.
