Meticulous hand hygiene and protective isolation is extremely important to immunocompromised patients in the hospital. To enhance the Infection Prevention, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute(CBDI) and Livewell Collaborative (LWC) worked together to developed an award system to increase the patients' adherence to daily hygiene activities. When the certain activities (for example, having shower, oral care, doing outdoor activities.) are done, the patients would be awarded some amount of points, with which they can redeem gifts or other benefits. To track this, a simple sticker chart system was created. In the past year, we developed an electric device to automate the process, which increased the adherence by 60% higher.

The interface of the device includes a 128 x 64 (px) screen, a RFID reader and several light sensors (replaced by physical push buttons during later development). The interface provide with very simple and efficient interactions:
Scan users' card to login;
Push one of the buttons when the patient finish a certain task;
Scan supervisors' card to confirm.
When the tasks are done, the patients will achieve award in the system, which are displayed on the screen.

30 devices are under testing at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. The result shows that the participants' adherence to daily hygiene activities reached a much higher level.
Here are some quotes we got from staff of Cincinnati Children's Hospital.
