Abstract (Summary)

Nosocomial infections are a significant medical burden to every health care setting in the United States. Also known as health-associated infections or hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), they are infections that people acquire while they are receiving treatment for another condition in a health care setting. To decrease rates of HAIs, Trū-Vigil, LLC will provide health care facilities with point-of-care hand hygiene capability in the form of portable hand sanitizers that clip onto lab coats or scrubs, along with a monitoring system that tracks medical staff usage of the sanitizers. This business plan will demonstrate how Trū-Vigil intends to deliver a vital health care service, while being a sustainable and profitable company.
