The Healthcare-Focused Continuous Disinfection Technology Provider will Present on Infection Prevention in the Long-term Care Industry
DALLAS (June 9, 2022) – ActivePure Medical will attend and present at the Texas Health Care Association’s 2022 Summer Conference. Caitlin Stowe, MPH, CPH, CIC, CPHQ, VA-BC, ActivePure Medical’s vice president of clinical affairs and medical liaison, will present “Back to the Future: The Evolution of Infection Prevention” on how long-term care facilities can improve the environment of care for residence and providers. Stowe’s presentation will dive into the history of cleaning and disinfection and discuss how emerging technologies assist in the battle against Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs). The 2022 Texas Health Care Association Summer Conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa in Bastrop, Texas, from June 13 through 15.

The Texas Health Care Association (THCA) is an organization with a mission to ensure the integrity and improve long-term healthcare services. For over 70 years, THCA has served for-profit and non-profit long-term care providers, including skilled nursing centers, rehabilitation facilities, assisted living communities and nursing homes. The association is an advocate for long-term healthcare funding, regulations and education to provide the best possible care for residents in nursing and assisted living facilities.
The 2022 THCA Summer Conference provides for-profit and non-profit long-term care providers opportunities to network and share best practices. In addition, the conference will kick off with the Party FORE PAC fundraiser and the annual THCA PAC golf tournament.
“I am grateful to our customer, Southwest LTC, for recommending us as a presenter at this event. We are excited to share emerging ideas with conference attendees on new technology to prevent infection as an additive to current cleaning and disinfection practices,” said Stowe. “We know current protocols leave gaps like missed areas or recontamination between cleaning and disinfection schedules. It is a great opportunity to learn how technology like ActivePure can fill the gap without requiring an operator since labor shortages remain a major concern for patient safety.”
