Hill-Rom and GE settle patent fight


Hill-Rom (HRC -0.2%) settles its patent dispute with GE by licensing its hand hygiene technology to GE and GE no longer contesting that HRC's patents are valid and enforceable.

HRC's Hand Hygiene Compliance Solution uses badge-locating technology that enables automatic continuous monitoring of hand hygiene station use in an effort to address health care-acquired infections. Alerts are sent to caregivers to remind them of missed hand hygiene opportunities.
