Tangent Medical Computers for Meedical vaccinations

Streamlining Hospital Vaccination Programs With Medical Computers

With President Joe Biden having announced that the country will have enough vaccines for every American by the summer, the end of this pandemic finally appears within reach. But having enough vaccines for everyone and actually utilizing them are two different things. Already we have seen countless examples of pharmacies and hospitals being forced to waste precious vaccines as they fail to use them.

Hospitals need to prepare adequately to safely and effectively administer vaccines to the entire population, without having them go to waste. This logistical problem has proved to be a hurdle, but it is by no means impassible. Tangent is here to help hospitals with their vaccination efforts with medical computers.

Utilize Time Saving EHR Solutions

Medical computers are proving to be indispensable when it comes to vaccination efforts. But the software running on your medical grade computers is just as important. Electronic Health Record systems are crucial to determining a patient’s eligibility for vaccinations. EHR systems can help hospitals automatically alert patients to their eligibility, and can streamline the vaccination process.

Contact your EHR software vendor to see what their game plan for vaccinating is, after all there is no point in reinventing the wheel. 

Create A More Efficient Sign In Process With Medical Computers

One of the potential chokepoints where vaccinations can stall is when medical professionals are required to constantly sign in and use passwords to access patient records and witness medication dosages. This process can be time consuming and laborious, but most importantly it can cost valuable time that can lead to vaccine spoilage.

With Tangent’s MedWitness sign in solution, this is no longer a problem. Doctors, nurses, and anyone administering injections can use this technology to sign into their medical grade computer using just their badge. This RFID enabled solution allows for vaccinations to happen as quickly as possible.

Keep Patients In The Loop

Above all, keeping your patients in the loop is crucial. Patients need to know when they are eligible to be vaccinated and when they can expect to receive an appointment. With Tangent Medical Computers, there are a number of ways to accomplish this. Chatbots, automated text messages, and even email solutions can help your patients feel safe and comforted by the knowledge that their hospital has a plan for them.

Be Prepared To Vaccinate With Tangent

Vaccines are becoming more accessible with each passing day. With estimates suggesting that the U.S. can reach herd immunity by the Summer, now is the time to act. Preparing your hospital for an influx of vaccinations can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. Tangent is here to help hospitals around the country meet their vaccination targets.

medical computers for medication witnessing wp

Witnessing Medication Administration Made Easy With Medical Computers

Providing safe and accurate prescriptions to patients can be a complex, and potentially risky endeavor. That’s why medication witnessing is crucial in the hospital setting. With medication witnessing, hospitals can be certain that medication is being used properly throughout the hospital. But oftentimes the process of medication witnessing is a laborious, clunky task. With Tangent medical computers, medication witnessing can be done quickly and safely, improving your hospital’s workflow.

Medication Witnessing With Medical Computers

Medication witnessing can be a pain for doctors and nurses to accomplish. Depending on where they are in the hospital, the process can involve multiple steps and require the witnessing RN to memorize a confusing ID number, user name, and password. Memorizing and recalling these inputs can take a considerable amount of time that the witnessing physician can use in other areas of the hospital.

Tangent M24T Medical Computer

With medical computers like the M24T from Tangent, this process is completely streamlined. The inputs required to witness medication changes can be safely and conveniently stored on your RN’s badge. This allows your doctors and nurses to have longer, safer passwords without the hassle of having to remember them; bad password habits become a thing of the past.

Tangent medical grade computers are equipped with SSO RFID, combined with Cerner Millennium and integrated with Imprivata Confirm ID. With these implementations, Tangent medical grade computers are perfect for easy and secure medication witnessing. Tangent computers and tablets have been tested and approved by Cerner, and can be trusted to help aid your medication witnessing efforts.

tangent medical computers for remote monitoring

Remote Patient Monitoring With Medical Computers

During this pandemic, telehealth has seen an unprecedented rise in its use. The federal government, in collaboration with private companies, have made telehealth more accessible than ever before. But telehealth is only one half of the picture. While patients of all backgrounds can make use of telehealth to virtually see their doctors, some patients require more care than these appointments can offer. That’s where remote patient monitoring comes in. Remote patient monitoring bridges the gap between telehealth appointments and physical appointments, allowing doctors to remotely monitor the vitals of high-risk patients without needing them to go into the hospital.

Why Remote Monitoring With Medical Computers Is Important

Since the beginning of this pandemic, protecting those most susceptible to infection has been a top priority of every healthcare facility. People with disabilities, the eldery, and those with pre-existing conditions have been found to be at higher risk for severe cases. At the same time, these groups are those who rely on hospitals for routine medical care the most. 

Telehealth appointments have allowed these patients to consult with their doctors. But it is remote monitoring that gives them the true care they need. Hospitals like Mount Sinai have made use of remote monitoring to measure the vital signs of patients in their own homes. This allows patients to have their vitals checked and sent to their doctor’s medical computers back at the hospital for analysis. The same tests that patients relied on pre-pandemic are then available to patients without putting them at-risk.

Will Remote Monitoring Stay After The Pandemic?

Remote monitoring will more than likely stick around long after this period has subsided. Remote monitoring has always been one of the next innovations bound to hit the medical space, and the pandemic has simply accelerated this. Mount Sinai originally started their remote monitoring efforts all the way back in 2014. With this in mind, it only makes sense for other hospitals to begin to accelerate their own remote monitoring efforts by investing in the necessary architecture.

Tangent medical grade computers are the best medical computers
M24T Medical Computer For Remote Monitoring

At the backbone of this architecture is the medical computers your doctors, medical assistants, and nurses use every day. The same medical computers that they use for telehealth appointments can be used for remote monitoring data retrieval, however not every medical computer is built with these applications in mind. Medical computers from Tangent are designed with both telehealth and remote monitoring in mind. With built-in front facing cameras, microphones, and high-bit color monitors for better diagnostics, medical computers from Tangent are perfect for both telehealth and remote monitoring.

China’s Economy Grew Last Year, How Will This Affect U.S. Manufacturing?

While the pandemic sent most major economies reeling, China’s economy managed to do the unthinkable — rise. The Chinese economy rose 2.3% last year. The stock market in Shanghai rose on the news by 1%, after having already made considerable gains throughout the year. The Chinese response to the pandemic has proven successful on both a human and economic side, but what does this mean for U.S. Manufacturing?

U.S. Manufacturing, How Can It Recover?

While the Chinese economy overall rose during 2020, certain areas felt the pandemic-inflicted economic woes worse than others. The New York Times reports that blue collar workers are finding themselves hard pressed for work, as well as recent college graduates. So while China’s recovery has been successful, there are pockets of doubt.

But there are lessons to be learned from China. Chief among them is that protecting workers works. With stay-at-home orders imposed throughout numerous areas in the country, including large swaths of California, commerce is down. In order for the economy to safely reopen, places of business must do everything they can to protect both workers and patrons.

Keeping workers safe ensures that their families remain safe, and helps reduce the spread of the pandemic overall. Make sure that your employees have access to the best possible PPE that your facility can provide. More than this, make sure that your employees are actually wearing their PPE when around others.

Social distancing, as always, remains one of the most important ways for workers to remain healthy at work. Consider having some employees use industrial grade computers rather than be exposed to each other on the floor. With industrial grade computers, certain aspects of your facility can be automated or done remotely, instead of having employees close together.

This can be especially useful in industrial areas such as meat processing. Meat processing plants have been a site for mass infections since the beginning of the pandemic, largely in part to poor PPE usage and lackluster social distancing efforts. By doubling down on these important points, workers can feel confident and comfortable at work, and at their homes.

The pandemic has caused strain across U.S. manufacturing and industry, but China’s swift recovery shows that there is light at the end of this tunnel. Tangent is here to help facilities of all kinds in their recovery efforts, contact a Tangent Specialist today for more information.

 

 

 

Are Medical AI Tools Worth Using In Hospitals?

Medical AI Tools are rapidly becoming mainstream features in hospitals, especially during this pandemic. These tools can help doctors make diagnosis, or simply advise them on treatment plans. Recently, the Health and Human Services Secretary, Alex Azar, proposed permanently ending FDA oversight on certain medical AI tools. Azar is recommending the end to this oversight in part because there are few complaints against Medical AI Tools. But is this truly the case?

Medical AI Tools During The Pandemic

Like many procedures, FDA oversight has looked very different during the pandemic. Many medical products and tools that regularly receive oversight have been granted emergency approval, including PPE and Medical AI Tools.

But due to the nature of using Medical AI Tools, the lack of complaints against them should not be taken at face value. Doctors will use Medical AI Tools to help guide them to making a diagnosis, and thus patients will only hear from their doctors about their diagnosis. There is rarely time where a patient will directly know about, or form opinions on Medical AI Tools.

Should Hospitals Use Medical AI Tools If They Do Not Have Oversight?

The question of whether or not certain Medical AI Tools will receive oversight is still up in the air. Ultimately, the decision will fall upon the incoming Biden Administration, who will have the final say. Currently, the proposal includes 91 products, including PPE, that can potentially receive exemption from oversight.

With Medical AI Tools, oversight may be something that hospitals would want to see remain the standard. Medical AI Tools have been found to cause hospitals to become worse at detecting illnesses like breast cancer. Research has found that some breast imaging software has not improved certain hospitals’s ability to detect breast cancer.

However, it’s worth noting that this particular software came out in 1998. Medical AI Tools, and AI in general, are becoming more advanced with each passing day. With this in mind, alleviating pressure on certain Medical AI Tools to be constantly overseen may help bolster medical innovation.

In either case, Medical AI Tools have found themselves to be indispensable in the hospital, and during this pandemic. The FDA has previously admitted Medical AI Tools emergency-use status for the pandemic, showing how critical these tools have become. With or without oversight, Medical AI Tools will continue to be used in the hospital, and your hospital should be ready.

Should Hospitals Continue Using Telehealth Appointments After The Pandemic?

Telehealth has become synonymous with healthcare during this pandemic. Hospitals around the country are using telehealth services on their medical computers to continue caring for their patients. GlobalData has found that 79% of medical specialists are now using telemedicine in the hospital. This is in part due to federal regulators and the private sector making telemedicine easier than ever to implement in hospitals. But will telehealth remain after the pandemic has subsided?

Telehealth After The Pandemic

Telehealth has become an integral part of how hospitals treat patients. Patients have become accustomed to the appointments, which do not require them to spend time driving to the hospital and waiting for the doctor. In fact, 9 out of 10 patients who used telehealth for appointments had a positive experience.

But these appointments were only made possible by sweeping federal action at the beginning of the pandemic, and are at risk of being taken away. The American Medical Association has previously called for the pandemic-related waivers that make telehealth possible to be expanded with the Telehealth Modernization Act. With this legislation and other similar ones being brought to the house and senate floor, it’s looking likely that telehealth will become a permanent fixture in the hospital setting.

Continuing Use Of Telehealth After The Pandemic

Hospitals should expect to continue making use of telehealth after the pandemic. While the service has been primarily used by at-risk patients, widening its availability can help hospitals reach more patients. With advanced medical computers from Tangent like the M24T, doctors can rapidly see numerous patients back-to-back. The primary benefit of the use of medical computers for telehealth is this saved time, for both doctors and patients. Doctors do not have to wait for patients to be roomed, and can quickly switch from one patient to the next without having to walk through the hospital.

Meeting Surging Hospitalizations With Medical Grade Computers

While vaccinations have begun across the world, it will take months for the ramifications of these injections to have an effect. Until then, the pandemic is still on, and currently more threatening than ever. A recent CNN article dove into the hospitals of L.A. County in California, and gave first hand accounts of the crisis unfolding there.

One top County health official said that they were on “brink of catastrophe.” as of December 31, 21,449 Covid-19 patients were in hospital beds in California, with 4,500 in ICU beds. CNN reports that L.A. mayor Eric Garcetti said, “We are still going to have our toughest and darkest days, it’s so critical we change our behavior.”

The picture in California is grim, and can easily be painted across the entire nation in the coming months. Hospitals around the country need to prepare now for a situation like California’s to happen in their own backyard. With the new, intensely-more infectious U.K. virus variant being detected in the United States, a rise in cases seems unavoidable.
