The Significance of Anti-Microbial Keyboards and Mice

The Significance of Antimicrobial         Keyboards and Mice

Medical grade keyboards and mice are the gateway to secure, sterile, high-quality healthcare.

Healthcare computers, carts and tablets receive significant credit in the way they have improved healthcare environments producing more efficiency, sterility and better quality service. Nevertheless, as the adage states: a castle can only stand as strong as its foundation. Medical grade keyboards and mice are imperative foundational supporting accessories that must be on par with the other foreground components in order to sustain a superior work environment.

Hands: The gateway to healthcare professionals and their patients. Study after study demonstrates that hands are one of the leading causes in the spread of germs. We teach the importance of clean hands since childhood because if there is anything we have learned from historical plagues to modern day epidemics, sterile hands are paramount to the prevention of spreading disease. Proper hand hygiene is crucial in any healthcare department, let alone workplace. Therefore, the technological tools that hands most come into contact hold insurmountable importance.

While the healthcare industry improves with the incorporation of technological products, in order to maintain the most hygienic and exemplary health environment, medical grade keyboards and mice, the accessories, must meet high quality standards as well.

GATEWAY ACCESSORIES

 Medical grade keyboards and mice are referred to as gateway accessories as they are the channels through which germs and viruses are spread or NOT. At Tangent, all our medical grade keyboards and accompanying mice are SilverShield™ antimicrobial and SealShield ™ waterproof. This translates to fully washable medical grade keyboards and mice. Protect your healthcare workplace to the highest caliber by selecting premium grade healthcare accessories.

MEDICAL TABLETS: GAME CHANGERS IN EFFICIENCY AND SECURITY

TANGENT MEDICAL TABLETS: GAME CHANGERS IN EFFICIENCY AND          SECURITY

1. Barcode

Tangent medical tablets are user-friendly, convenient and practical electronic tools that merge multiple devices into one. Tangent Medical tablets consolidate the expenditure of several expensive gadgets which means they enable healthcare establishments to fit tight budgets without compromising medical capabilities. By cutting out the need of using several devices and relying on a single medical tablet to execute tasks, higher efficiency and productivity is attained while patient satisfaction is ensured.

Tangent medical tablets allow various tasks to be executed simply and efficiently. All Tangent medical tablets contain barcode scanners that can be utilized for inventory management, drug administration and dosage, and patient identification. One feature, multiple uses.

2. RFID-Enabled

Tangent medical tablets, such as the T13, and M10i are RFID-enabled medical tablets that grow with you as you deploy more RFID badges. RFID-enabled medical tablets are the modern day modalities in which to authenticate users, track equipment and inventory.

Medical tablets embedded with RFID enable the identification and tracking of patients without requiring additional upgrades, again curtailing unnecessary expenditure and increasing efficiency.

Tangent RFID-enabled medical tablets keep you well suited for present and future health industry technological standards as RFID-enabled technology will see an increase in the years to come.

3. Powerful Intel Processors for EHR

Let’s face it, EHR documentation has become an uncompensated end of the day task requiring upwards of 2-3 extra hours pushing our hard working medical professionals to burnout and exhaustion. It’s no wonder EHR leaves feelings of resentment and disdain. If those extra documenting hours are compensated, that, yet again, raises the issue of higher expenditure. To add to this industry-wide issue of longer workdays are the substantial errors and inaccuracies reported due to the time spent between episodes of care and the documentation.

Tangent medical tablets with Intel 5th Gen/4th Gen/Quad Core Processors have ample memory and storage capacities that allow doctors to immediately update EHR records during each episode of care. That means no more after-shift work hours, shorter days and the elimination of erroneous documentation.

Additional features such as live chat, email, reference checking, secure telehealth solutions, and prescription signing – create for an all-encompassing, convenient workplace toolbox at your fingertips.

4. Smart Card Readers

Embedded Smart Card Readers safeguard sensitive patient health information as they ensure user authentication making medical tablets secure devices. They are practical and easy-to-use devices that can be used in conjunction with the authentication features built into the operating system to create the MFA (Multi Factor Authentication).

Summary

Tangent medical tablets are must-haves for medical organizations and facilities. Our line of medical tablets will undoubtedly change the productivity and satisfaction of patients and healthcare professionals alike with most up-to-date features modern technology has to offer.

As a whole, medical tablets are essential to run highly effective healthcare facilities. Tangent medical tablets allow organizations and establishments to curtail the need of multiple devices by replacing them with one antimicrobial, robust solution that matches the health industry’s highest standard in safety and security.

Key advantages to using Tangent Medical Tablets:

• Better information accessibility for caregivers and clinicians.

• Optimized data flow and synchronization.

• Easier deployment and management of new applications.

• Less duplication everywhere from tests to notifications and messages hence decreased tech fatigue.

• Less uncompensated time spent on EHR documentation.

• Lower Total Cost of Ownership of your HIT solutions, and operational and administrative costs.
