Continuous and Automated Measuring of Compliance of Hand-Hygiene Procedures Using Finite State Machines and RFID.

This paper, published in the April 2012 issue of the IEEE Instrumentation & Measurement Magazine, features work done by Ryan Johnson, a Senior Engineer at Vanteon.  A novel method for measuring hand hygiene is presented using RFID technology coupled with data processing via a Finite State Machine (FSM).
