Nosocom Solutions is a California based startup building innovative products to assist hospitals prevent "Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI)". HAI are the infections that patients contract at healthcare facilities while receiving treatment. About 1 in 20 people admitted to hospitals in the US get infected by HAI (about 75,000 people die!), and the ratio is much higher in the developing world. HAI in hospitals result in up to $33 billion in excess medical costs every year in the US alone. With the evolving of antibiotic resistance, HAI are becoming even more deadly and imposing huge costs to healthcare systems across the world. The good news is that most of these infections can be prevented. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) declared HAI as a "Winnable Battle". Nosocom Solutions has taken up the cause of preventing HAI.
MISSION: Identifying the causes of Healthcare Associated infections (HAI) in hospitals, and build novel/improved technologies to prevent infections to save lives and reduce healthcare costs.
VISION: Our vision is to make hospitals safer to patients and healthcare providers; to build a go-to place for hospitals for all of their infection prevention needs.
