MENOMONEE FALLS, WI – 11 May, 2016 – Connected Technology Solutions, a Menomonee Falls, Wis., based manufacturer of kiosks and related self-service technology, has been named a winner of the 2016 I.Q. Innovation Awards for CleanTouch™, its ultra-effective UV-C surface sanitizing solution.
CleanTouch™ is available on the company’s Patient Passport Express®, which is marketed as part of the CTS Healthcare Services® division. The PPE is a robust kiosk that provides check-in, bill-pay and other patient-facing functions at many of the country’s leading healthcare facilities, such as Cleveland Clinic, Ohio State University Health Systems and Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
By employing a continuous bath of UV-C light across the kiosk’s touch surfaces, CleanTouch™ rapidly kills up to 99.9-percent of bacteria and viruses, leaving the screen clean for subsequent users. After each transaction, when the user steps away, a quick 30-second wash of light disinfects the screen, making it clean and ready for the next patient.
The feature, introduced in 2015, gives healthcare providers one more powerful tool in the battle against the onsite spread of harmful bacteria and viruses.
“People go to their doctors to get better and may not want to use a touchscreen after another patient unless our CleanTouch solution has cleaned it first,” said Sandra Nix, president and CEO of CTS.
“We wanted to devise a solution that would help these facilities take better care of their patients. And CleanTouch does just that by making sure the high-touch kiosks combat the transmission of disease,” she said.
The I.Q. Awards are presented by Milwaukee’s Biz Times, a business journal that covers tech-heavy southeast Wisconsin. The annual recognition celebrates the region’s most creative and innovative products, services or processes.
The winners will receive their awards at a lunch ceremony on Wednesday, May 18, at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, Woodland Dreams Ballroom, in Milwaukee at 1721 W. Canal St., from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Sharing the stage with CTS will be such nationally known companies as Astronautics Corp. of America, Briggs & Stratton and Fiserv Inc.
