Is UVC the Future of Infection Prevention Technology?

The risk of cross-contamination and mass infections in healthcare settings has always been an issue, but in the midst of a raging pandemic, that problem has been exacerbated even further.

However, with many hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities already stretched thin, an affordable solution that requires minimal time and effort to use is needed. Can UVC technology fill this gap?

Daniel Litwin met with Christopher Allen, CEO of iCleanse, to get his thoughts on the matter. iCleanse is a chemical-free disinfection company that uses UVC light to disinfect surfaces and spaces in 60 seconds or less, with Allen bringing over a decade of experience in IoT technology to the organization.

The COVID-19 pandemic has quickly brought UVC technology to the forefront of infection prevention strategies in the healthcare setting, establishing it as the standard that all other technologies must follow.

One additional, unexpected benefit that UVC products offer healthcare companies is increased employee satisfaction.

“It’s so hard to find new folks to come on board, and there’s a shortage in general,” Allen said. “So, giving them the opportunity to disinfect their phone and tablet, whatever’s in their pocket, before they come to the facility, but also when they go home to their families – that gives them a lot of peace of mind that they are not bringing COVID home with them and not exposing their children or their loved ones to this pandemic.”
