Tangent remote monitoring for hospitals

What Is Remote Monitoring On Medical Computers?

There is a lot of talk about telehealth these days, and while it has been a vital tool during this pandemic, there have been other medical computer-based solutions that have been overlooked. One such solution is remote monitoring via medical computers, which can help hospitals continue to treat patients without putting them in harm’s way.

What Is Remote Monitoring On Medical Computers?

Simply put, remote monitoring takes the idea of telehealth to its logical endpoint. While telehealth is used primarily for appointments such as primary care visits, remote monitoring allows doctors to monitor the vitals of patients from their own home. This allows doctors access to the vital patient information they need to make healthcare decisions without putting either the doctor or patient at risk.

The same temporary rules that have made telehealth more accessible during the pandemic have also made remote monitoring more feasible. Now any hospital using medical grade computers can easily set up remote monitoring.

Remote Monitoring In The Home

Right now, high-risk patients have enough on their plate. Asking them to put their health on the line to come into the hospital might be a big ask. But the regular trips that these patients make to the hospital are also necessary for doctors to determine the next step of their care plan. Remote monitoring allows for doctors to get the information they need, and for patients to be out of harm’s way.

Major players in the healthcare industry, both private and public, are preparing for telehealth. Telehealth with medical computers has proven to be an effective way of social distancing, and could potentially save lives. Make sure that your hospital takes advantage of all the programs available, and implements this crucial technology.
Remote Monitoring On Tangent Medical Computers Is Easier Than Ever

Wearable sensors, self administered tests, implanted sensors, and more are now available for patients at home. The information these devices collect can be transmitted directly to their doctor’s medical grade computer. In essence, remote monitoring allows for pre-pandemic levels of patient care via medical grade computers.

Remote Monitoring In The Hospital

The obvious benefit to remote monitoring is that doctors can once again get the information they need to make informed decisions. But there are other benefits to hospitals in general. High-risk patients such as those with heart failure can be safely monitored at their home, allowing for more ICU beds to be available in this crisis.

Furthermore, remote monitoring can be used inside the hospital to keep track of infected patients on medical grade computers without putting medical staff at risk. Remote monitoring can even lead to faster response times.

While reducing readmission rates should be the goal of any hospital, the study also found ways to help make readmission as smooth as possible. Part of their strategy is to create a plan for family members and caretakers to use in case a patient needs to be readmitted. In addition, linking inbound and outbound medical records also helped. By using a medical grade computer, doctors can create these game plans for family members and caretakers and securely transfer the files to them. In addition, doctors can use their medical grade computer to combine medical records and ensure that a readmitted patient receives the care they need.

Reducing Hospital Readmission Rates

As hospitals around the country reopen to elective procedures, unresolved challenges must once again be grappled with. One of these challenges is the reduction of hospital readmission rates. Hospital readmission refers to the readmission of a patient less than 30 days after a procedure, normally due to complications. According to the American Institute of Research, nearly one in five patients experience readmission.

While the lowering of this number should be enough to have hospitals take this issue seriously, there are other factors that contribute to the severity of this problem needing to be resolved. Due to the Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP), hospitals with an excess in hospital readmission rates may see their medicare payments significantly reduced.

With both the U.S. government taking this problem seriously and the sheer scope of the issue, it is more important than ever for hospitals to take the reduction of readmission rates seriously. Luckily, there is research showing that hospitals can take steps to reduce these rates, potentially saving patient’s time and money.

Reducing Hospital Readmission Rates

In a study titled, “Hospital Strategies Associated With 30-Day Readmission Rates for Patients With Heart Failure” researchers found a number of ways to help reduce readmission rates for patients. One of these methods was to ensure that patients had follow-up appointments before being discharged. By keeping careful track of a patient’s recovery on medical PCs, medical staff can know beforehand whether a patient can be discharged. Then, in a follow up appointment, medical staff can refer to information on their medical grade computer on the patient’s recovery and make the decision on whether or not to discharge them. Keeping a record of a patient’s recovery on a medical PC can ensure patients who would be readmitted will instead remain in care.

Handling Readmission

While reducing readmission rates should be the goal of any hospital, the study also found ways to help make readmission as smooth as possible. Part of their strategy is to create a plan for family members and caretakers to use in case a patient needs to be readmitted. In addition, linking inbound and outbound medical records also helped. By using a medical grade computer, doctors can create these game plans for family members and caretakers and securely transfer the files to them. In addition, doctors can use their medical grade computer to combine medical records and ensure that a readmitted patient receives the care they need.

Hospital Readmission Rates: Reduced With Medical PCs

Reducing hospital readmission rates is a crucial goal in healthcare, and medical PCs can help achieve it. Medical PCs are a type of medical grade computer, and help doctor’s keep track of patient’s records so that readmission is not necessary. When it is, medical PCs can help make the process easy and keep patients healthy. With a medical grade computer at your doctor’s side, there’s nothing they can’t accomplish.

With the country on the path towards reopening, hospitals have begun transitioning their facilities to accommodate regular appointments and patients. But will patients be willing to return to hospitals during this crisis? More patients than ever are seeing their doctors remotely via telemedicine technologies such as Medical All-In-One PCs. In addition, more Americans than ever are seeing trips to the hospital as risky. The question then becomes, how can hospitals create a welcoming environment for patients to want to return to?

With the country on the path towards reopening, hospitals have begun transitioning their facilities to accommodate regular appointments and patients. But will patients be willing to return to hospitals during this crisis? More patients than ever are seeing their doctors remotely via telemedicine technologies such as Medical All-In-One PCs.  In addition, more Americans than ever are seeing trips to the hospital as risky. The question then becomes, how can hospitals create a welcoming environment for patients to want to return to?

Getting Patients Comfortable Again

Just a few months ago, hospitals were viewed as places where people would go to get healthier. It is possible to return the people’s viewpoint back to this by getting patients comfortable with the idea of going to the hospital again. While this is easier said than done, there are steps that hospitals can take to make patients more comfortable. Patients are already comfortable using medical all-in-one PCs and taking telemedicine away from them is not the answer. Instead, allowing patients to continue using telemedicine appointments will keep them comfortable and allow doctors and nurses to foster their patient relationships effectively. This can lead to patients ultimately returning to hospitals for elective procedures.

Explore Contactless Solutions

Even if not used in the home, telemedicine can play a part in healthcare. Allowing patients the option of seeing nurses via telemedicine on medical all-in-one PCs instead of in person before their doctor visits may help them feel safer. In addition, the use of a fully sanitizable touchscreen medical grade computer in a patient’s room can help them interact with their doctor in a safe, contactless way.

Utilize Technology To The Fullest

Above all, technology can help patients feel safe in the hospital after this crisis passes. With medical grade computers, patients can feel safe knowing that a fully antimicrobial enclosure is protecting their users. Both doctors and patients can use such medical grade computers to communicate in a social distant manner, all while staying safe.

Before our current crisis, healthcare workers already had a high burnout rate due to stress. With 42% of physicians feeling burned out by their work. The current situation is only exacerbating this stress for many frontline healthcare workers. While there is no convenient way to eliminate the overbearing weight of the world's current situation, there are smaller issues that can be easily resolved.

Reducing Frontline Healthcare Worker’s Stress And Anxiety

This crisis has taken a toll on all of us, but frontline healthcare workers have taken the brunt of this crisis. The doctors, nurses, and medical staff protecting the public health are doing so at their own risk. It’s no wonder then why some frontline healthcare facilities are seeing depression symptom rates of 50%. Experts say that as many as 25% of frontline healthcare workers may experience disorders such as anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress, according to the LA Times. How can we help these frontline healthcare workers and reduce their mental health issues?

Eliminate Other Stressors

Before our current crisis, healthcare workers already had a high burnout rate due to stress. With 42% of physicians feeling burned out by their work. The current situation is only exacerbating this stress for many frontline healthcare workers. While there is no convenient way to eliminate the overbearing weight of the world’s current situation, there are smaller issues that can be easily resolved.

Stressors for healthcare workers come in many sizes and forms, but largely have to do with the inefficiency of the healthcare facility that many work in. 49% of physician time is not spent helping patients, but rather filling out tedious paperwork. Having an assistant fill out this paperwork on a medical PC may reduce the stress physicians feel from this time sink. With assistants on medical PCs, doctors can focus on treating patients instead of filling out forms.

Each industrial computer is designed to handle situations that a commercial computer simply could not. Take the Rugged Mini E3 by Tangent for instance. With a rugged, shock and vibration rated chassis, the Rugged Mini E3 industrial computer is capable of being used in nearly every industrial setting. In manufacturing, this industrial grade computer's extreme temperature operating range from -13°F to as hot as 158°F means that it can handle nearly every environment. With an advanced, fanless cooling system, the Rugged Mini E3 is able to operate on a 24/7 basis without needing to be dusted constantly.

Industrial Grade Computers Versus Commercial Computers

While it may be tempting to think that all computers are created equal, this simply is not the case. Every computer is built for a specific purpose whether or not it is labeled as such. Industrial grade computers are computers that are designed for industrial applications like manufacturing and oil processing. Industrial grade computers differ from commercial computers in a number of ways that make them more versatile and well suited for industrial use.

Industrial Computer Applications

The biggest difference between an industrial computer and a commercial computer is in their applications. A commercial computer is generally designed for use in an office setting. This allows for commercial computers to be built less ruggedly than industrial grade computers. Commercial computers also have the benefit of working in air conditioned spaces, meaning that they do not have to use advanced cooling systems. Commercial computers also do not have to operate on a 24/7 basis, meaning that they can be built to consume more power.

With an advanced, fanless cooling system, the Rugged Mini E3 is able to operate on a 24/7 basis without needing to be dusted constantly.

Longer Lifetime In Harsher Environments

Because commercial computers are used in the same environments as people, they are able to be built with less stringent guidelines than industrial grade computers. While this may be fine for use in the office, this simply would not do on an oil drilling platform off the coast. Industrial grade computers are built rugged, smart, and to last. With industrial grade computers like the Rugged Mini O from Tangent, there is virtually no worrying about if your computer system will hold up.

With loosened guidelines by the FCC and congress, these tangent computers are more ready than ever to help keep patients safe and healthy in their own homes.

Best Medical Computer For Telemedicine

In these uncertain times, telemedicine has become an invaluable tool for healthcare facilities seeking to treat patients in the most effective way. Multiple branches of the U.S. government, along with health insurance companies and even internet providers have made it easier than ever to set up telemedicine. But when the nation comes out of this crisis, what will happen to the telemedicine infrastructure we have built up? There are now calls for a permanent lifting of telehealth restrictions after doctors, nurses, and patients have seen how much better this technology has made “going to the doctor.”

Medical Computers For Telemedicine

There is no telemedicine without the use of a medical computer. Medical computers are uniquely designed for use in the medical field. Every medical computer must meet rigid guidelines, such as being UL60601-Certified. Companies like Tangent take this further. Tangent computers are IP sealed to be water resistant.

Why Use Medical Computers For Telemedicine?

The convenience of using medical computers for telehealth is starting to be seen by both doctors and patients alike. Mike King, director of network and telecommunication operations at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has made a similar comment.

“Why should I go into a doctor’s office for a face-to-face consultation and waste half a day when I can do it from my office” by using telemedicine, King said.

Now more than ever, washing your hands is crucial to staying healthy. Touching a surface that someone else has touched without washing their hands is part of the infection process. However, making sure that the surface is regularly cleaned is an effective way of reducing the risk of this happening. To that end, Tangent has designed a line of washable computers that can be regularly cleaned to prevent the infection process from occurring.

Washable Computers: Prevent Disease Vectors

In the hospital setting, a medical computer is an indispensable tool to helping patients. However, the same medical computer that helps patients can also harm doctors and nurses. A medical computer can be used by several different people in one day, all of whom are interacting with countless other medical personnel and patients. This can cause a medical computer to quickly turn into a breeding ground for pathogens.

With washable computers, the risk of infections from medical computer use can be reduced. The CDC has confirmed that cleaning agents do work on infection causing viruses, making washable computers an effective tool for hospitals to potentially reduce the risk of infection.

How To Wash A Medical Computer

The CDC has released guidelines on how to clean surfaces such as washable computers. For surfaces in general, the CDC recommends wearing disposable gloves during the cleaning process and immediately throwing them away afterwards. For electronics such as a medical computer, the CDC recommends using alcohol-based wipes or sprays which meet a minimum 70% alcohol threshold.

Major players in the healthcare industry, both private and public, are preparing for telehealth. Telehealth with medical computers has proven to be an effective way of social distancing, and could potentially save lives. Make sure that your hospital takes advantage of all the programs available, and implements this crucial technology.

Telehealth Computers: How to Effectively Set Up Your Hospital

In these times, it is becoming increasingly risky to have healthy patients enter hospitals where they can easily become disease vectors. Because of this, many hospitals are transitioning doctor visits to telehealth visits. Telehealth refers to medical computer based doctor visits, where a doctor uses a medical computer to video-chat with their patient. Telehealth has seen such a rise in the last few weeks that the industry is having trouble keeping up with demand, according to the Wall Street Journal.

With this in mind, it is more important than ever to have this critical technology implemented in your hospital as soon as possible. Like personal protective equipment, telehealth using medical computers is a preventive measure to ensure those in your community and hospital remain healthy.

Telehealth Is Easier Than Ever

One of the main obstacles for telehealth is the seemingly tough challenge of implementing the technology. Because of the amount of regulations regarding medical data, using video-chat has been clouded by a barrier of laws. However, the Department of Health and Human Services has temporarily lifted many of these restrictions.

Video services like Zoom, Facetime, and Skype have all been given temporary approval for use during these times. Many other medical specific services such as VSee, Doxy, thera-Link, and Amazon Chime are available as well. Many of these telehealth services can be downloaded directly onto HIPPA compliant, medical grade computers.

Inform Patients That Telehealth Costs May Be Waived By Their Insurance

You read that right, insurance companies like Aetna and Blue Cross Blue Shield have announced that they are suspending co-pays for telehealth appointments. Both of these insurance companies see the life-saving potential of telehealth appointments on medical computers.

As jobless claims in the United States surge, it is more important than ever to inform your service area of these telehealth services. Cost and fear of the current situation may prohibit patients from seeking help. Telehealth on medical computers can offer these patients a free and worry-free way to get the help they need.

Federal Funding For Telehealth Is On The Way

FCC chairman Ajit Pai announced a $200 million plan that if passed, would allocate money to healthcare facilities for implementing telehealth. If passed, this would greatly reduce the costs for hospitals to implement this life-saving technology. In addition, the plan calls assures those on government aided internet plans that they will not be cut off during these times. This means that those in the most need will have access to telehealth, so long as their local hospital does.

Everyone is Preparing For Telehealth, Are You?

Major players in the healthcare industry, both private and public, are preparing for telehealth. Telehealth with medical computers has proven to be an effective way of social distancing, and could potentially save lives. Make sure that your hospital takes advantage of all the programs available, and implements this crucial technology.
