Newsweek names PurpleSun One of the Best Infection Prevention Products of 2020
PurpleSun’s E-300 and Space-1 were determined to be best ultraviolet disinfection and lighting devices
May 6, 2020
Newsweek, in partnership with The Leapfrog Group, an independent nonprofit that evaluates health care quality, has started a new health care ratings series. In the first of their Best Health Care series, Newsweek highlights some of the best infection prevention products. PurpleSun is proud to be included in the category of best ultraviolet disinfection and lighting devices.
To determine which healthcare products would make the list, the selection committee evaluated each one using four criteria: effectiveness, safety (to both patients and health care workers), successful real-world implementation, and the stability of the company (to support future implementations).
“When looking at safety and effectiveness, evaluations from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) were considered, along with published research studies. The quality of the research studies that demonstrated the effectiveness of the product were evaluated by looking at reproducibility, closeness between lab data/results and real-world application of the data/results, and closeness of fit between the choice of test or method of testing and what they were testing for.”
Case studies from hospitals and other health care facilities were used to evaluate real-world implementation and that is where PurpleSun really shines. We work directly with our clients to help integrate our delivery system into existing hospital workflows to improve overall processes and clinical results.
