The purpose of this project is to extend the functionality and improve the performance of the hand hygiene monitoring system (Hyreminder). This system is in place at the University of Massachusetts Memorial Hospital in the intensive care unit, where it helps prevent the spread of infection in the hospital. Our reengineering of the system under the Java Spring framework improves the usability, performance, and maintainability of the system. This allows for faster webpage loading times and improves code readability. It also enables a more scalable system now ready to deploy at hospitals of varying size. Additionally, the system adds support for tracking moving beds via hardware sensors. Thoroughly documenting and testing the code ensures that others can develop the system further.
