Intermountain teams worked with clinicians to develop and test a watch-like device that includes a temperature sensor, LED visual alert, and radio frequency identification technology. With those components, it detects the use of soap or any cleanser when applied to the skin. It then visually reminds clinicians to wash their hands, while in a patient's room, by turning red or green.
