History of SwipeSense

SwipeSense was founded in 2011 with the mission to make hospitals safer. Since then, SwipeSense has been partnering with our customers by providing data-driven insights and expanding our platform based on their needs.



Swipesense 1.0

SwipeSense 1.0 was created. SwipeSense 1.0 combined point of care hand hygiene with real-time usage data to improve hand hygiene performance and reduce hospital-acquired infections. 



SwipeSense launched the second generation of electronic Hand Hygiene monitoring with personnel badges and smart drip trays to provide a better user experience and increase data accuracy for more actionable insights.




SwipeSense expanded our platform to offer Asset Tracking. With Asset Tracking, customers can create efficiencies by instantly locating their equipment, no longer needing to sacrifice time away from patients’ bedsides searching for lost equipment or wasting hospital dollar's purchasing new equipment. 



SwipeSense enhanced our platform with the first generation of Nursing Insights. With this solution, data is automatically gathered on nurse rounding compliance to help hospitals reduce the risk of adverse events like patient falls and pressure injuries.  




SwipeSense was acquired by SC Johnson in March 2020 to make a difference in the healthcare industry.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the SwipeSense team devoted our development efforts to provide a safety solution for the challenges hospitals were facing. In August 2020, we launched automated Contact Tracing, which provides exposure data in minutes to help our customers protect their staff by mitigating the spread of infectious diseases in their facilities.



SwipeSense launched the second generation of Nursing Insights with the addition of bedside shift reporting compliance data. With this extension, hospitals can leverage insights to improve both patient safety and patient experience.




SwipeSense launched the third generation of Nursing Insights with Rounding Monitor. Rounding Monitor helps front-line hospital staff prevent adverse events and improve patient satisfaction in real-time. With Rounding Monitor, staff can immediately identify which patients have had the longest gap in care while on the unit and prioritize addressing their needs.
