Preventing the spread of Healthcare Acquired Infections

Proxximos believes that a digital solution can improve contact tracing in hospitals and care homes, as it is:

  • Fast – finds infected people before they are infectious
  • Accurate – highlights exposed people with precision
  • Automatic – frees clinical staff from the work of manual contact tracing
  • Multi-pathogen – effective against any communicable disease

Today's contact tracing in hospitals

Manual and labour intensive

Contact tracing has been used to control the spread of infectious disease for over 100 years.  Today, it is used in hospitals when a new infection of concern is discovered (MRSA, C.diff, TB, Covid-19, etc).  Nurses try to work out who else been exposed so that infection control measures can be taken (isolating the exposed patient, using PPE, etc).  This process is done manually with pen and paper by asking people who they have been near, when and for how long

How does Proxximos work

Wearables keep track of the opportunities for pathogens to spread

We have developed a solution designed for use in both hospitals and care homes. We adapt existing staff pass carriers to include electronics capable of keeping track of all transmission paths, all of the time.  This data can then be used to instantly, accurately, automatically find people who have been exposed

Patients or residents also carry wearables, for example as part of their identification wristband, adapted to their needs
