HAI-OPS

HAI-OPS will build a pragmatic, automated solution to significantly decrease HAI prevalence. The project will create a cyber-physical solution integrating a network of sensors and monitoring software able to provide real-time information & alerts, advanced analytics for cutting down HAI roots and for outbreak prevention, all packed as configurable, standards-compliant plug-in for existing Hospital Information Systems (HIS).

The project will handle the prevention of hospital acquired infections (HAI) both as singular cases and outbreaks. HAI-OPS will support healthcare as a service for critical necessity. Any clinical location is a potential customer. Primary targets are the ones with extremely high risks of HAI (surgery, invasive investigations, acute care and infectious diseases units).

OBJECTIVE

HAI-OPS aims to decrease overall mortality and morbidity associated with HAIs, by specifically targeting their most common sources and transmission pathways. This will be achieved using a comprehensive and configurable cyber-physical system

The HAI-OPS platform’s vision is based on the results of a thorough initial survey that has taken into account the state of hospital acquired infections and corresponding regulations in most regions of the globe (including highly-developed countries). As such, HAI-OPS is planned to be commercialized internationally.

HAI-OPS differs from existing solutions by providing a comprehensive & pragmatic solution for combating HAI at many levels, through an integrated cyber-physical system – achieved using a two-pronged approach: basic line of defence( real-time monitoring of clinical workflows most prone to HAI transmission, implemented both horizontally-pathogen-agnostic and vertically-pathogen-specific) and advanced line of defence (risk maps and contact networks).
