Workshop on Ultraviolet Disinfection Technologies & Healthcare Associated Infections: Defining Standards and Metrology Needs

  • 14 Jan 2020
  • 15 Jan 2020
  • NIST - Gaithersburg, Maryland

Please join this interactive meeting focused on examining measurement, standards, technology and data research needs to promote innovation in the effective use and implementation of ultraviolet-C (UVC) technology in healthcare settings for the reduction and prevention of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). HAIs are recognized as an important public health and patient safety issue. UVC devices are shown to reduce the incidence of many HAIs, but the adoption of the technology by the healthcare industry has been sparse. There is a lack of performance standards to help healthcare managers make informed, credible investment decisions. Measurements and standards in the light and biological sciences are needed to accelerate the adoption of UVC technology in the healthcare market.
