Clorox Healthcare Announces Collaboration with HP Healthcare

July 24, 2019

At the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) 2019 annual conference, Clorox Healthcare is proud to announce that HP has tested its latest HP Healthcare Edition products[i] to be compatible with Clorox Healthcare® Bleach Germicidal Wipes and designed to support infection prevention protocols.[ii]

Computers and electronic devices in healthcare facilities are commonly contaminated with pathogenic microorganisms[iii] and regular cleaning and disinfection is needed to keep them from becoming a vehicle for pathogen transmission, but not all equipment is designed to support daily disinfection.

“Cleaning and disinfection play a critical role in patient safety, and technology can’t be exempt from the daily practices facilities rely on to support their infection prevention protocols,” said Raja Bhadury, Head of Care Delivery Solutions, HP Inc. “HP Healthcare Edition products are specifically designed for healthcare environments and engineered for easy, repeatable cleaning and disinfection with germicidal wipes every shift, every day.”[iv]

Enabling Efficacy, Compatibility, and Compliance

Clorox Healthcare’s collaboration with HP builds on a legacy of innovation in disinfectant efficacy and surface compatibility and a longstanding commitment to support safe and compliant product use.

In addition to introducing new and reformulated products engineered to provide powerful disinfection efficacy with improved compatibility and aesthetics, Clorox Healthcare also created the Clorox Healthcare Compatible program. Through the program, Clorox Healthcare helps healthcare facilities identify cleaning and disinfecting solutions that are compatible with the surfaces and equipment they need to treat and helps manufacturers ensure their products support essential infection prevention protocols. By working with manufacturers to screen a broad platform of chemistries and provide surface compatibility expertise and access to a third-party lab for testing, the program ensures healthcare facilities can feel confident the products they use to reduce the risk of infections won’t damage surfaces and equipment. It also helps manufacturers provide the best instructions for the maintenance, cleaning and care of their products.

“As a leading manufacturer of healthcare surface disinfectants, Clorox Healthcare continuously strives to deliver solutions that combine broad antimicrobial efficacy with the compatibility and aesthetics healthcare facilities need for consistent, compliant use,” said Amy Harmon, Associate Director, Marketing, Clorox Healthcare. “We believe that all products, materials and equipment created for the healthcare environment must be designed to support patient safety and are excited to work with companies like HP who are equally committed to innovation that enhances patient safety.” 

A Comprehensive Portfolio of Disinfecting Solutions Built on Innovation

Clorox Healthcare offers the industry’s most robust portfolio of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-registered surface disinfectants in addition to the award-winning Clorox® Total 360® System, advanced UV technology, and cleaning and odor removal products to provide healthcare facilities, clinical staff and EVS professionals with a comprehensive portfolio of best-in-class solutions to help reduce the risk of infections and protect public health. By continuing to drive innovation in disinfectant efficacy, surface compatibility and product delivery, Clorox Healthcare is committed to empowering clinical and Environmental Services professionals in the fight against healthcare-associated infections by arming them with products and resources designed to promote compliance and enhance patient safety facility-wide.
