Is U.S. Manufacturing Back?

U.S. manufacturing, like most sectors, took a nosedive at the start of the pandemic. Since then, the sector has seen a drastic and rapid recovery. Today, signs suggest that U.S. manufacturing is finally rounding the corner. Factories are once again outputting goods, demand for these goods is rising, and the economy is seeing stability for the first time in months. But the pandemic is not over, and factories need to continue their vigilance in order to make sure this recovery stays on track.

Contact Tracing Efforts

Contact tracing is crucial to keeping U.S. factories open. When a worker falls ill, the potential for cases to spread is real. Keeping on top of workers with regular testing is key to stopping cases in their tracks, but contact tracing is just as important. Make sure that workers who test positive recall every other worker they interacted with, and all equipment they may have used.

Social Distancing With Industrial Computers

If workers share the same equipment, outbreaks in your facility may be more severe than they otherwise would have been. Giving workers their own workstations with industrial computers can potentially cut back on the potential of widespread cases in your factories.

Industrial computer workstations don’t have to be entire cubicles, with rugged mini PCs they can be as small as your factory requires. Rugged mini PCs are small industrial computers with all the power of their larger counterparts. With Mini industrial PCs, workers can have entire workstations without the square footage they require. Mini industrial computer-based workstations also promote social distancing by allowing every worker to do their tasks on separate devices.

Re-Energize With Tangent

Manufacturing is up, but so are cases. Make sure that your factory is equipped with the technology to keep your workers socially distanced and safe. Tangent industrial computers can help your factory do just that. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information.

tangent medical telehealth chronic health management

Can Telehealth Be Used For Chronic Disease Management?

As Telehealth becomes more ingrained into our society, questions about its long term use are bound to come up. One of these questions is if Telehealth on medical computers can effectively treat those with chronic diseases. Chronic disease management is one of the primary services offered by hospitals. But due to the ongoing pandemic, the efficacy of these services may be hindered.

Simply put, those with chronic diseases are also at a higher risk of contracting series cases during the pandemic. This means that those with chronic diseases may want to avoid hospitals altogether, to avoid even the chance at unwanted contact. But these patients still need to be treated for their chronic diseases, and telehealth may be their way to still receive treatment.

Luckily, a study by the University of York found that telehealth services are an effective way to treat those with chronic diseases. The study reads,

“Compared to usual care, home telemonitoring or telephone support was associated with a reduction in the number of patients rehospitalised (one RCT), reduced mortality (two RCTs), [and] a lower number of hospitalisations…”

It is worth noting that the researchers stressed that their work was done with a small sample size, but it is still promising work. With effective medical computers capable of running telehealth applications, Hospitals can make sure that their patients.

Remote Monitoring With Medical Grade Computers

Like Telehealth, remote monitoring is a tool that utilizes medical grade computers to keep your most at-risk patients cared for. Those with chronic disease can make use of remote monitoring systems to keep track of their vitals, measurements that would typically be done in the hospital setting. Then, they can easily transfer these measurements to your hospital’s doctors for monitoring on their medical grade computers.
With the same medical grade computer, doctors can then study a patient’s measurements and take notes on suggested therapeutics or lifestyle changes. Doctors can then easily set up a telehealth appointment with their patient to discuss their findings face-to-face, all from one convenient medical computer.

Telehealth With Tangent

Now more than ever, the role of hospitals is crucial to the health of communities across the nation. But patients who need medical care the most are the same patients who would be put at risk by entering hospitals. By ensuring patients have access to quality telehealth services running on the best medical computers, hospitals can keep their patients safe and healthy — both inside and outside the hospital.

Top 3 Reasons Why Hospitals Need Medical Grade Computers Now More Than Ever

While it may seem that every medical computer is built the same, this is simply not the case. During this pandemic, hospitals need the absolute best tools to use at their discretion. That’s why Tangent medical computers are designed to be versatile tools built for hospital use. Here are three reasons why hospitals need Tangent medical grade computers for their doctors.

Prevent Nosocomial Infections

Now, more than ever, preventing inter-hospital infections is more important than ever. Typically, infections that occur in the hospital are referred to as Nosocomial infections. These can include diseases such as Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli. Now however, this can also include infections due to the pandemic. As we head into flu season, preventing nosocomial infections of all kinds is crucial to the wellbeing of hospitals everywhere.

In order to help prevent nosocomial infections, Tangent medical computers come equipped with antimicrobial touchscreens. These touchscreens on medical computers like the M24T are fully adaptive and precise, allowing doctors to easily access patient records and information just as fast as they use their own cell phones. With antimicrobial coatings, disease causing pathogens are unable to survive on the surface of Tangent medical computer screens and quickly die off. This built-in sanitizing system can help prevent doctors from spreading infections to one another via commonly shared medical computers.

IP65-Rated Water Resistant And Dust Sealed

Tangent medical computers feature antimicrobial touchscreens to keep hospitals clean. In addition to these antimicrobial touchscreens, Tangent medical computers are IP rated to be water and dust resistant. IP ratings allow medical grade computers like the Medix 22 to be cleaned regularly without worry of internal damage to the computer. With medical computers from Tangent, both the front and back panels fo the medical computer can be cleaned easily and safely.

With the IP rating also comes a sealed design that mitigates the growth of pathogens inside the medical computer as well. With a fanless cooling system, the Medix 22 does not build up dust inside its enclosure, keeping maintenance requirements low and bacteria breeding grounds absent.

Built-in Telehealth And Telemedicine Capabilities

The pandemic has forced many healthcare providers to rely on telehealth and telemedicine services. Likewise, some medical computer companies have had to scramble to produce medical computers built for telehealth and telemedicine.

But at Tangent, every medical computer has been built with telemedicine in mind since before the pandemic began. Tangent believes that telemedicine is a vital technology that has allowed mobility-impaired individuals to get the quality medical care they deserve. Now, everyone from those who are healthy to those who are at-risk can make use of virtual medical appointments to get the care they need.

Tangent medical computers have built in front-facing cameras and solid network capabilities that allow for clear and accurate virtual appointments

Telehealth On Medical Computers Is Here To Stay

It’s no secret that Telehealth is on track to become the next big leap in healthcare technology. But some experts, employers, and hospitals may be hesitant to make such a leap. It may seem as though telemedicine on medical computers is only a necessity due to the pandemic. However, as Forbes points out, telehealth is not only here to stay, but it is high time for everyone to get on board.

Telehealth visits doubled in March of this year alone. The level of telehealth visits has continued to increase each month, and has remained stable in the last. Simply put, telehealth has proven itself as a staple of healthcare. Gone are the days when telehealth was an added bonus in employer healthcare plans. Telehealth is here to stay, and there are a few ways that both employers and healthcare providers can prepare for this new future.

Giving Employees Access To Telehealth

One of the major hurdles to supplying adequate telehealth capabilities to employees on a company healthcare plan is the technology they use. If a company has a bring-your-own-device policy for remote work, they may be unable to use telehealth services effectively. This can potentially bar them from receiving the healthcare they need. In order to rectify this, companies should explore subsidizing purchases of new computer equipment and internet service provider plans of their employees.

With upgraded computing capabilities, employees will be able to both see their doctor virtually and perform their work more efficiently. It’s a win for both employers and employees.

Hospitals And Telehealth

While employers should be thinking about how their employees receive healthcare, so too should hospitals. While there is no doubt that your hospital has some telehealth capacity now, this capacity may be strained in the coming months as more physical hospital space is dedicated to fighting infections. If your hospital needs to cancel in-person visits entirely, you must also be prepared to transition patient care to the virtual setting.

Creating Smart Factories With Industrial Computers
