Compliance Meters

You may already have seen the new look compliance meters on your dashboard. The increased flexibility means that you can now select the audit period you want to see in the drop down box.

Organisation Administrators attached to more than one facility, can now select which organisation they want to see.

Region Administrators attached to more than one region can now select which region they would like to see.


Coming soon - to make printing the compliance meters easier, a print button will soon be available


Gold Standard Auditor Workshops

Most GSA workshops for 2016 are now full. If you or your staff are interested in attending a GSA workshop in the future, please register your details on the Workshop Online Booking Form.

By adding your details to one of the waitlists, we are better able to plan workshops according to demand. We can then contact you directly once dates are confirmed.


Late mobile data?

A new process has been added to HHCApp to prevent mobile data that is synced after the audit is complete, from changing the dataset.
Any Hand Hygiene Compliance data on a mobile device that has not been synced before the audit changes to 'Complete' will now go automatically into a 'local audit' when the device is next synced. 
This local audit is generated by the database and will be named with the auditors 'username' and the date/ time of the sync.

Example: 'IgnazS_temp_audit_20160713_1156'


NEW  Learning Management System

HHA have recently launched a new learning management system where all of the hand hygiene e-learning modules are hosted. The modules are the same as previous, but the system is new.
The first time that you use the new system, you can click the link below, and press the start button. Then on the login screen you need to press the 'Register Here' button under the heading of New Users. This will take you through a registration process where you will be given a login. 

If you need staff completion reports for your facility but are not sure how to do this, please contact us at:  hhalearning@austin.org.au
