The Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare has announced it will release a tool specifically targeting one of healthcare’s most persistent challenges–hand hygiene–in September.

The Center works with leading hospitals and healthcares systems to target and develop solutions for the industry’s leading patient safety and quality challenges. To this end, the Center has developed the Targeted Solutions Tool (TM) (TST), which will at first discuss hand hygiene compliance but later grow to address root causes, and compliance solutions for other challenging areas, such as handoff communication, wrong site surgeries, and surgical fire prevention.
