Abstract: According to government statistics, each year in Canada, more than 220,000 healthcare acquired infections (HAI) result in 8,500 to 12,000 deaths, and one in nine hospital patients in the country get an HAI. The gravity of the situation is serious, says Wallace. Infections are the fourth leading cause of death in Canada. That's why Infonaut is hoping its sophisticated real-time disease surveillance system for tracking hand sanitary practices, healthcare equipment movement, and professional/patient contact will break into mainstream hospital and healthcare use.
