Tangent Medical Computers For Medical Cart Use

When times are uncertain, one constant that hospitals can always rely on is the quality of their Tangent medical computers. Recently, Belfast City Hospital was in dire need of medical carts. Tangent worked closely with Hospital Services Limited and Touchpoint Medical to quickly deliver 15 quality-made medical carts directly to the hospital. 

This is just one of the many hospitals and medical centers that Tangent has supplied sanitary medical computers to during this pandemic. With Tangent medical computers, hospitals can host an army of medical carts capable of operating on a 24/7 basis.

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.

Meeting Surging Hospitalizations

The name of the game is preparation, and Tangent is here to help. While it may seem like medical grade computers are not a good way of preparing for surging hospitalizations, this could not be further from the truth.

Medically Certified Computers For Hospital Use

As the holiday season approaches, hospitals around the country are not feeling the season’s cheer. 0% ICU capacity in Los Angeles is a grim picture that may be painted in other parts of the country after the holiday season, as the Thanksgiving bump in cases may repeat itself. Already, airports are reporting the number of travelers has grown to pre-Thanksgiving levels, showing that yet another holiday bump may be on the horizon.

How can hospitals prepare for another large surge in cases when they are already at capacity? Stretching resources, and utilizing medical computers may be one solution.

medical computers for telehealth therapy

Telehealth Therapy Appointments On Medical Computers Save Time

It’s no secret that telehealth has become a vital part of medical care across the country. As the pandemic continues to worsen, hospitals are seeing staffing shortages. Telehealth on medical computers helps fill in the gaps left by staffing shortages, allowing doctors to see more patients in a day than would typically be possible. The American Medical Association has called for the pandemic-related waivers that make telehealth possible to be expanded with the recently introduced Telehealth Modernization Act.

But it’s not just traditional medical appointments that benefit from being transformed into telehealth appointments on medical computers. Therapy and mental health appointments can — and have — also greatly benefit from being done on telehealth enabled devices.

Therapy Appointments Using Telehealth

The Harvard Business Review recently took a look at the pros and cons of therapy and psychiatry appointments via telehealth. Here’s what they found,

“The payoff can be huge: a cascade of improvements to EHRs, integration of digital clinical data and collateral information, a data-driven approach to clinical decision-making, more tailored clinical monitoring and responsiveness, and a sustainable model for personalized care at scale.”

When telehealth on medical computers becomes normalized, the success of therapy appointments on the whole can be greatly expanded.

Efficient Appoints Using Telehealth

One of the main drawbacks to physical appointments is their length. Patients must check-in, be roomed, and screened by medical assistants. This process occurs on the hospital’s time, and requires rooms be made available to patients even before they are being treated. Furthermore, during this pandemic, these rooms can be used for other vital work or even transformed into additional ICU space.

With medical computers, doctors can use their office to virtually “room” scores of patients in a single day. Patients can fill out forms and be screened on their own time, and doctors can see one patient after another without clogging up the hospital’s supply of rooms.

Furthermore, at-risk patients that have underlying diseases in addition to their mental illnesses do not have to be put in harm’s way by entering the actual hospital. They can remain safe at their homes, and doctors likewise do not have to come into contact with more people than is absolutely necessary.

How Hospitals Are Adapting To Meet Surging Hospitalization Rates

The U.S. is continuing to set new records for case numbers nearly every day, and the third wave of this pandemic seems to be in full swing. Hospitals around the country are preparing for numbers to continue to skyrocket, as the full effect of the holiday season has yet to be seen as the L.A. Times reports that this may only be the beginning of the ‘Thanksgiving bump.’ Hospitals around the country need to prepare for even more cases, and consequently more hospitalizations, in the coming days. Some hospitals have found ways to stretch their resources to meet the demands of this pandemic.

ABC27 News recently talked with several hospitals about what they are doing to increase the capacity of their facilities. According to the article, Penn State Health is planning on converting recovery rooms and short-stay units into treatment areas to meet rising hospitalization in a move to increase their capacity beyond their 170 ICU beds.

Other hospitals in the area, like UPMC, have added nearly 200 nurses in the past week to ensure patients have the care they need. In addition, UPMC has expanded its telemedicine capabilities to ensure patients can access vital care.

Telemedicine is one way that hospitals can virtually increase their capacity without using up valuable hospital space. Telemedicine allows patients to virtually connect with their doctors via medicals computers for appointments and checkups. Often, these appointments are quicker and easier for both patients and doctors, saving medical professionals valuable time to treat more patients. In a time when every resource, including time, is stretched thin, telemedicine on medical computers allows doctors to work with more patients at once.

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.
