Individual Motivation: Guides & tips

Overview on how to get the most out of Individual Motivation

Individual motivation is a service that enables all the healthcare workers to sign up to receive their individual hand hygiene level in a weekly email – which brings them increased knowledge on where to improve. They can compare themselves to their colleagues on all measured wards. Everyone is anonymous, and the user is the only one able to view their hand hygiene level.

Individual Motivation page in Sani analytics

The Individual motivation page in Sani analytics shows the Primary contact person and the Hygiene mentor the number of healthcare workers who have signed up to receive their hand hygiene level. Still, you will not see who signed up and what their hand hygiene levels are.

We want to protect your healthcare workers and therefore we do not show you their personalised reports. However, let’s take a look at the type of report they receive as they are probably going to have a lot of questions for you.

What do my healthcare workers receive?

After signing up to the service, the healthcare worker will each Monday receive an email with a link to their hand hygiene report. 

They receive data for each room type on the ward on a weekly basis. They can see their hand hygiene in comparison to their colleagues. Below is an example of the report your healthcare workers receive. We recommend you take a look at it and understand what you see. We have also outlined a couple of frequently asked questions from healthcare workers that you should check out and familiarize yourself with.

How can I use this data?

We recommend you encourage your healthcare workers to sign up to receive hand hygiene compliance reports. The more people that participate, the faster hand hygiene will improve and the quicker you will see a reduction in infections on the ward. 

Encourage your healthcare workers to talk among themselves about their own hand hygiene level and discuss the hand hygiene rules at meetings. Start by focusing on areas that can be improved quickly - such as the staff toilets.
