A Day in the Life of the MICU
Capturing fine grained data about healthcare worker movement within hospitals can provide important insights into a variety of problems.
About the Data:
We deployed a mobile sensor network to record movement data for 6 classes of HCWs over 2 weeks at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinic’s (UIHC) Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU). We logged 33721 consecutive timestamped events of HCWs entering and leaving patient rooms. These “In Room” and “Out of Room” events are widely recognized as opportunities for hand hygiene. This animation represents 1 day shift from these data.
