Medical Grade Computers Built For Emergency Room Use

Heading into the fall and winter this year may look a bit different than in the past. The combination of the annual flu season and the possibility of a second wave during this pandemic has led to fears of medical shortcomings. From a lack of testing to limited Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity, there are areas where hospitals should be concerned. Making sure that your hospital can handle an increase in hospitalizations may be crucial to the wellbeing of the community at large during this flu season. To that end, Tangent is here with customizable and sanitary solutions for your hospital to stay operable during this period.

Medical Grade Computers Built For Emergency Room Use

Not every computer is built equally, and nowhere else is this as clearly seen as it is in the emergency room. In the emergency room, time is of the essence. Making sure that your medical grade computers not only work, but work fast is critical to the health of every patient that comes in. Tangent knows this, and has built medical computers like the Medix 22 with the needs of the emergency room in mind.

The New Medix 22

The Medix 22 is not only fast—it is lightning fast. With a built in Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake processor, the Medix 22 medical grade computer can handle the latest medical software with ease. 32 gigabytes of RAM helps this medical computer multitask efficiently. With this amount of memory, the Medix 22 can run numerous medical grade software without lagging. In the emergency room, this translates to being as fast as your doctors.

Medical Grade Computers Built For ICU Use

While the needs of the ICU are similar to that of the emergency room, there is a higher emphasis on monitoring vital signs. The Medix M24T not only works as a medical computer, but as a monitor as well. With a large, 24 inch monitor capable of displaying multiple readouts at once, the M24T medical computer is perfect for the ICU.

The M24T also comes standard with a sanitary touchscreen, allowing doctors to easily access vital signs in real time. Medical software becomes that much more intuitive through the use of this large touchscreen.

Medical Grade Computers: Safe And Sanitary

Above all, Tangent medical computers are designed to be one thing: Safe. There is no sense in bringing in equipment to the hospital that will do more harm than good. All of Tangent’s medical grade computers feature antimicrobial enclosures that mitigate the growth of bacteria on their surfaces. Their touchscreens are IP rated to be water resistant, and can be cleaned with traditional disinfectants.

Tangent is here for your hospital so that your hospital can be there for your community. Learn more by contacting Tangent Sales today.

Tangent medical computers are antimicrobial computers

Antimicrobial Medical Computers For Hospital Use

As the pandemic surges forward into the fall, keeping hospitals safe will become increasingly difficult. The world is nearing 30 million confirmed cases and 1 million resultant deaths, two harrowing figures. With flu season nearing, these numbers are expected to increase as the two viruses mingle. How can hospitals keep safe during these times? Antimicrobial medical computers are one solution that can help hospitals stay cleaner and safer.

What Are Antimicrobial Medical Computers?

Antimicrobial medical computers, simply put, are medical computers that exhibit bacteria, microbe, and pathogen mitigation properties. Copper metal naturally exhibits some antimicrobial properties, and can kill bacteria on its surface. These properties have been harnessed by Tangent into a solution to coat all of their medical computers. This solution causes the enclosure of every Tangent medical computer to be antimicrobial and mitigate the growth of harmful pathogens on their surfaces.

Antimicrobial Medical Computers In The Hospital

With antimicrobial enclosures, Tangent’s lineup of medical grade computers are in a different category altogether from traditional computers. Antimicrobial medical computers are built for the hospital, both inside and out. While the antimicrobial enclosure keeps your doctors and nurses safe from exposure to harmful pathogens, the internals of a Tangent medical computer help keep your medical staff on the cutting edge of technology. Featuring some of the latest Intel processors, expansive memory storage, and built-in telehealth features, medical computers from Tangent are ready to help your medical staff in every way.

Antimicrobial Computers For Telehealth

Speaking of telehealth, Tangent’s medical computers have been built for telehealth from the very beginning. Telehealth has been an exciting way for doctors to connect with patients in a timely manner, and now the technology is more important than ever. With built in cameras, microphones, and touchscreen capabilities, doctors can remotely connect with patients in a way that feels almost lifelike.

Medical Grade Computers Built For Quality Care Telemedicine

Telehealth has become a lifeline for doctors and patients seeking to establish some sense of normality during these trying times. While telehealth has been around long before the pandemic began, it’s use has skyrocketed. According to GlobalData, 79% of medical specialists said they were now using telemedicine in their hospital setting, setting a trend of using this technology may not be quick to fade. At-risk patients can safely see their doctors without being put in harm’s way, and doctors have to interact in close contact with fewer people on a daily basis.

This win-win situation has been made easier than ever thanks to loosening restrictions. Federal agencies, insurance companies, and hospitals have all made the use of medical grade computers for telehealth possible. As more doctors and patients become accustomed to telemedicine, regulators have been considering keeping these restrictions loosened. If this is the case then telemedicine may be here to stay, and choosing the right medical grade computers to use will be crucial to every hospital’s success.

Medical Grade Computers Built For Telemedicine

Not every medical grade computer is built specifically for telemedicine, in fact most are not. A good medical grade computer for telemedicine should be designed for virtual meetings, like the newly enhanced H22 from Tangent. The H22 medical computer from Tangent is a freshly designed computer ready for telemedicine.

Sporting a front-facing camera and fully santiziable touchscreen, doctors can easily and safely talk to patients virtually. The H22 medical grade computer’s antimicrobial mitigates the growth of pathogens and helps keep your hospital safe.

Talk To Patients On The Move

Your doctors are busy, and their time is precious. Telemedicine helps doctors see more patients virtually, but requires them to be firmly planted at their desk. That is, unless they use medical grade computer tablets like the T13 from Tangent. With the T13 medical tablet, doctors can analyze patient charts, catch up on their emails, and even start or end telehealth appointments while on the move. Your doctors can effectively be in two places at once with medical grade tablets in their hands.

Create A Healthy Hospital With Tangent

It’s not easy to maintain a safe indoors environment, but there are ways to help this upkeep. Telemedicine appointments help lessen the amount of people physically present in the hospital, aiding social distancing efforts and relieving stress for many. In addition, telemedicine through antimicrobial medical computers can help reduce the risk of contact-based transmission.

Your doctors need tools that they can not only rely on, but ones they can trust to do more good than harm. With Tangent medical grade computers, doctors can perform their vital work without worry. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information on telemedicine and medical computers.

Keeping Essential Employees Safe At Work

As more employees return to work, keeping them safe should be the top priority of every business. But as the pandemic continues on, it is becoming increasingly difficult to properly protect essential workers. Facemasks, regular handwashing, and social distancing efforts are key to protecting your essential employees, but there are other steps you can take to ensure their safety. By using antimicrobial, medical grade computers in place of traditional computers, your employees can feel safer knowing that they are using safe and sanitary computers.

Medical Grade Computers: Safe And Sanitary

How many employees touch a computer on any given day? If your employees work at a grocery store, chances are they share checkout lanes with each other throughout the day. Regularly cleaning these POS computers is a great way to stop the spread of germs, but employees may forget to clean their computer as regularly as they do the conveyor belt or customer card reader. With an antimicrobial computer at their side, employees can feel safe knowing that their computers take care of the disinfecting.

Antimicrobial medical grade computers from Tangent are computers that are specifically designed for use in high-germ scenarios. In today’s world, they double as a precautionary measure against the pandemic. Medical grade computers from Tangent are treated with an antimicrobial agent that makes their enclosure fully antimicrobial. Pathogens quickly die off on the surface of these devices, and their spread is mitigated.

With a fully washable touchscreen as well, antimicrobial medical grade computers from Tangent are easy to use. Just like your employee’s smartphones or tablets, medical grade computers from Tangent can be operated with just fingers. There’s no fancy system for employees to learn either as medical grade computers from Tangent use Windows 10 as their operating system, more than likely the same operating system employees use at home.

Medical grade computers like the E24B from Tangent or the M24T from Tangent are fully mountable in nearly every situation and can be easily fitted with your POS software of choice. In any business, medical grade computers from Tangent can find a place and help keep your employees, customers, and yourself safe during these trying times.

Good posture at medical computers is important

Good Sitting Posture At Your Medical Computer

As the pandemic continues on, your doctors are no doubt making more use of their medical computers for telehealth purposes. Loosening restrictions by the federal government have made implementing telehealth solutions in the hospital easier and safer than ever. But as a consequence of this, doctors are spending more time sitting down at their medical computers with patients than they normally would. We’ve come up with some great ways to ensure that your doctors and nurses maintain good health by maintaining good posture at their medical computers.

Why Sitting Posture At Medical Computers Is Important

Medical computers are tools designed to increase the wellbeing of others, but without proper posture these efforts can have a negative impact on a doctor’s health. Poor sitting posture can lead to:

  • Increased strain on the body
  • Reduced spine health
  • Above average damage to joints and muscles.

Over time the lasting consequences of poor posture can negatively impact one’s quality of life, and lead to health complications down the road. But the negative health effects of poor posture can easily be avoided.

Maintaining Good Posture In The Hospital

Good posture isn’t just something you learn, it’s a lifestyle decision that you live each day. For doctors at medical computers, posture is something that can be practiced each day to increase overall health.

When sitting at your medical computer, it is important to avoid crossing your knees and ankles, as this can put unnecessary strain on the joints and muscles of these body parts. Keep your legs in front of you, inline with your hips. Likewise, keep your arms at right angles towards the keyboard. Your medical computer should have standard VESA mounting, and be capable of being adjusted directly to eye level. You don’t want to be straining your neck to look down at your medical computer’s monitor.

Above all, make sure you are sitting up straight. It is more than tempting to slink back into your chair, but keeping your chair flush against your back can prevent a slow fall into this position. Your height plays a big factor into all of this, make sure that your desk and medical computer are calibrated to your height accordingly. Your equipment should work around you, not the other way around.

Maintain Good Posture With Tangent

The posture of your doctors is crucial to your hospital’s long term success. Health doctors make healthy patients, and tangent is here to help. Tangent’s lineup of medical computers are capable of being mounted, making them easy to customize for an individual’s unique posture requirements. Give your doctors the posture aid they need with medical computers from Tangent.

Medical tablets for first responders

Medical Computers For First Responders

We all know of the ongoing pandemic that is currently scarring the nation, but as the pandemic continues on so does the progression of seasons. We are seeing earlier starts to both fire seasons in states like California and Hurricane season on the Atlantic coast. California is currently battling multiple large fires, two of which are now the second and third largest in the state’s history. On the east coast, two hurricanes are forming and expected to make landfall. With a worsening climate, being prepared for longer disaster seasons will be crucial for effective community medical care. To that end, Tangent has developed medical computer tablets that can be used by first responders and medical professionals alike to help disaster relief efforts on multiple fronts.

Medical Computer Tablets For Disaster Relief

Helping people is the top priority of every first responder, doctor, and hospital in the nation. But during wide scale disasters, this priority may be hard to manage. Maintaining the chain of command is essential to organizing aid efforts. With medical tablets from Tangent, this can be accomplished.

Medical tablets from Tangent are fully capable of receiving and sending medical correspondence. This helps ensure that your first responders are capable of receiving new orders, no matter where they are during a fire or hurricane.

Medical computer tablets from Tangent are lightweight, versatile pieces of medical equipment that can aid first responders in their disaster relief efforts.

These touchscreens are also antimicrobial, which can help save vital disinfecting time during this pandemic.

On The Field, In The Hospital: Medical Computer Tablets

While you may think of medical computer tablets as being used in just the hospital, they are actually versatile enough to be used in the field too. Tangent has designed their medical tablets to be of use to everyone from doctors to firefighters, with the same functionally and software support across this spectrum. Contact Tangent Computer sales today for more information on how medical tablets can help your disaster relief efforts.

Tangent brings you the latest in thermal camera technology with our skin temperature detecting kiosk.

Keeping Safe With A Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk

Stores all across the country are facing a critical question: How can reopening be done in a safe manner? While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to reopening, there are steps that each store can take to ensuring that the most is being done to keep employees and customers safe. One such solution is the use of a Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk from Tangent, which can safely take the skin temperature of both customers and employees in a contactless manner.

Keeping Safe With A Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk From Tangent

It may seem odd to think that a kiosk can help with reopening efforts. However, with a Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk from Tangent, reopening can be done safely and efficiently. Fevers are one of the common symptoms of infection, and everywhere from hospitals to schools are using some form of temperature detection in their entry-screening process.

But with hospitals and schools, typically the same amount of people arrive and leave at a preset schedule. Stores have the unique property of having constant foot traffic. Taking an individual’s temperature is a timely process, and very quickly can lead to large lines. Worse, these slow methods put your employees at risk by keeping them in close contact with potentially infectious persons.

With a Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk from Tangent, this work can be done in an automated and safe process.

Automated Skin Temperature Detection With Tangent

Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosks from Tangent work by detecting the presence of people in entry ways. Simply set a Kiosk up near a doorway, and the thermal camera will pick up anybody who passes by, whether they are a customer or employee. The thermal camera and screen will then guide the person through having their skin temperature checked in a touchless process. In as little as one second, employees and customers can have their temperature checked.

If a person’s skin temperature exceeds the limit you set, a silent or audible alarm will be triggered to alert staff. Staff can then double check the person’s internal temperature with traditional methods or simply ask the person to leave. The Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk from Tangent allows you to retake control of your business and the decisions behind it.

Reopen Confidently With Tangent

Reopening does not have to put you, your workers, or your business at-risk. Keep everyone at your store safe with a Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk from Tangent. Contact Tangent Sales today to learn more about our Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk, and how your store can acquire one.

Tangent can help hospitals ditch their fax machine for modern medical computers

Why Hospitals Rely On Fax Machines, And How They Can Advance With Medical Computers

If you wanted to buy something off your favorite online shop, and the only way to get your receipt was via fax, would you still buy it? Chances are you would, but forgo collecting your receipt altogether. The matter of the fact is that fax machines are (and have been) outdated for decades. But despite advances in medical grade computer technology, nearly 90% of hospitals still rely on these dinosaurs of machines to transfer patient data around the hospital. Why are fax machines still prevalent in hospitals around the country when medical grade computers are more advanced than ever? To answer this question, we will have to go back to when patient data was on paper instead of on medical grade computers.

The HITECH Act And Transition To Medical Computer Records

In 2009 amidst the previous economic recession, President Obama passed a series of legislation aimed at reinvigorating the economy. One of these acts was the HITECH Act, which among other things also set aside $30 billion for hospitals to revamp their paper medical records by digitizing them and putting them on medical grade computers. The switch from paper medical records to digital ones on medical computers proved to be a huge success, with medical computer-based patient records jumping from from 9 percent in 2008 to 83 percent in 2015 according to Vox.

The large stimulus amount in this Act is mostly responsible for this jump in medical computer-based record usage. But even though hospitals adopted the use of medical grade computers for their records, the industry that created patient record software still had some catching up to do.

There was no part in this Act that forced these software companies to work together on standardizing files. Because of this, a radiologist may want to send an X-ray over to a cardiologist in the same hospital, but have no way for the file to accurately transfer. This harkened back to the earliest days of computers, when programs and files had no standardization and often required specific software and hardware combinations to work.

Tangent can help hospitals ditch their fax machine for modern medical computers
Fax Machines Don’t Have To Be A Crucial Part Of Your Hospital

Thus, the fax machine was used to physically print off patient information from medical computers, and send copies to other departments and hospitals.

How Can Hospitals Ditch The Fax Machine?

If medical grade computers are flying cars, then fax machines are roads. While they played an important role in the transition to full medical grade computer use, they are quickly approaching their expiration date. Medical computers have long had medical software that is both safe and secure, and capable of transporting medical data.

Secure email can also play a pivotal role in transferring patient data between medical grade computers. These options also allow hospitals to save on paper and ink costs, and free up valuable realty that is taken up by bulky fax machines. However, this does not explain how hospitals can get their medical grade software to communicate with each other.

The 21st Century Cures Act requires that medical software to exchange medical data with other medical software without special effort. The exact meaning of this Act is still up for debate, but is promising in its scope. If implemented as intended, this Act would require medical software companies to play nice with each other, and finally allow that radiologist to email the cardiologist an X-Ray.

How Can Hospitals Be Ready For The Removal Of Fax Machines?

Be Ready With Medical Computers From Tangent

Fax machines have come and gone for a large part of the economy. Hospitals, being some of the last to make the transition away from the fax machine have many choices to choose from.

Unleash Your Hospital's Potential With Medical Grade Computers From Tangent

Is An All Digital, Medical Computer-Based Hospital Possible?

During this pandemic, hospitals are seeing an unprecedented level of new technology being deployed. Thanks to loosening government regulations and private sector support, telehealth and telemedicine have been implemented in hospitals across the United States. But this begs the question, is a fully digital, medical computer-based hospital possible?

Increasing Hospital Efficiency With Medical Computers

In 2016, Modern Healthcare toured a digital hospital. What they found was a hospital in which medical computers and other technologies had transformed the way that healthcare was delivered. This efficient approach to healthcare allowed doctors and nurses more time with patients and helped automate the bulk of the hospital’s backend work.

While this hospital was built from the ground up to be a digital hospital, today’s hospitals can adopt some of these measures to see their efficiency increase. Medical computers have already proved their worth to hospitals with telehealth and telemedicine, but these medical computers can also play a role in helping your hospital’s digital capabilities.

Medical Grade Computers: Keep Doctors Informed

One of the major benefits of a fully digital hospital is the excision of old, inefficient methods of healthcare. Medical computers like medical grade tablets can help doctors eliminate the need for pagers. Instead, doctors can have their own medical grade computer on them at all times. With full medical grade computer capabilities, medical grade tablets can allow doctors to review medical records, respond to emails, and more while on the move throughout the hospital.

What’s more, medical grade tablets allow doctors all the capabilities of pagers in the same device as their professional materials. This two-in-one allows doctors to have the full use of a medical grade computer and work phone in one.

Expand Telehealth Capabilities With Medical Computers

Telehealth has already seen a massive increase in use during this pandemic. But as patients become more accustomed to this level of care, it may be hard to convince them to come back to the hospital. To this end, working on your hospital’s website may help patients in the transition to more online-oriented care.

Tangent's Medical Grade Tablets Can Help Digitize Your Hospital

With an updated website and patient portal, patients can connect with their doctors more easily. Instead of setting up an entire appointment, patients can send their doctors a short message on the patient portal. Doctors can then see this message on their medical computer or medical grade tablet, and respond accordingly. This can save both time and appointment capacities at your hospital.

Medical Grade Computers and Tablets: The Way Forward

The transformation of hospitals in the digital age is happening, and medical grade computers and medical grade tablets will play a crucial role in the hospital of tomorrow. Keep your hospital up to date with the latest in medical technology from Tangent.
