Tangent Medical Grade PCs for Pharmacies

Medical Grade PCs For Pharmacy Use

Pharmacies are one of the most important areas in any hospital. While doctors help diagnose patients and recommend medication, it is the pharmacy where these efforts come to a head. However some pharmacists are still lacking in the tools they need to do their job safely and efficiently. Medical grade PCs can help your pharmacists with reading prescriptions, keeping track of inventory, and more.

Electronic Prescriptions That Prevent Error

A widely cited study in the Journal of the Royal Society Of Medicine found that 15% of studied clinical histories were illegible. Doctors no doubt had the best intentions while writing these clinical histories. However, the fact remains that handwriting leaves room for error. This is especially true for prescriptions. If a patient receives a handwritten prescription and gives it to their hospital pharmacy, there is the chance of the pharmacist misinterpreting it.

This can have disastrous consequences for both patients and hospitals. Doctors and Pharmacists can cut down on this margin of error by using medical grade PCs to transfer prescriptions. Doctors can use medical grade PCs like the E24B from Tangent to safely send medication recommendations to their hospital’s pharmacy. After that, Pharmacy technicians receive the prescription through their own computer in a completely legible format.

Easy Access To Patient Medical Information

Your doctors have access to their patient’s medical history, and so should your pharmacy technicians. Pharmacy technicians can access relevant medical information from their medical grade PCs. The M24T from Tangent features a touchscreen. Technicians can use this touchscreen to quickly view patient information, making sure that they are giving their patients relevant advice.

All medical grade PCs from Tangent feature these touchscreens. These touchscreens are fully sanitizable, and can be cleaned with regular detergents found in the hospital.

Medical PCs That Work With POS Devices

Inventory tracking can be a hassle, especially in the pharmacy. Nowhere else is the level of precision expected as high as it is in the pharmacy, and for good reason. One small mistake can lead to potentially monumental consequences for a patient. Pharmacy technicians perform pill counting and inventory management, but their medical grade PC can help.

Medical grade PCs like the T13 from Tangent are designed to interact with POS systems. The T13 comes with an optional barcode scanner, and can even act as a POS system with the right software. This computer can help keep track of inventory, keep track of payments, and keep a digital record of patient drug usage.

Handling Drug Information With Medical PCs

Knowing Drug information is one of the primary tasks of a pharmacy technician. They need to be able to tell patients the ins and outs of a medication, including how to use it and the possible side effects. While the information that regularly comes with medication can provide knowledge to your technicians, the use of medical grade PCs offers entirely new insights for them.

Telehealth

Tele-Health, Tele-Medicine, and Tele-Patient Appointments On Medical Computers

This pandemic has not only changed the way healthcare operates, but also how it is delivered. Virtual appointments were scarce before 2020, often used as an auxiliary option for patients. Now nearly any appointment that can be done online is. Tele-health, Tele-medicine, Tele-patient appointments all play increasingly important roles in the hospital.

Despite their similar names, these types of virtual appointments couldn’t be any more different.

Tele-health On Medical Computers

Sometimes an appointment revolves simply around a doctor needing to speak with their patient. This could be for an annual checkup, or even a screener interview to see if further medical attention is needed. Tele-health is perfect for these instances.

For tele-health appointments, doctors use their medical computer as a virtual phone. This allows them to connect with patients face-to-face, while also having their medical records on hand.

m24t medical grade computer
Tangent M24T Medical Computer

The Medix 24T from Tangent comes with a built-in, front-facing camera. This high resolution camera is perfect for tele-health appointments and allows patients to see their doctors with the utmost clarity.

What Is Tele-medicine 

Tele-medicine takes the practical applications of tele-health one step further. In addition to patients having face-to-face time with their doctors, they also receive treatment. Treatment options with tele-medicine can vary, but are made increasingly easier with the right medical computers.

Nearly all of Tangent’s medical computers feature front facing cameras to capture your doctor during tele-medicine appointments. These same medical computers can be used with remote monitoring equipment at your patient’s homes, directly feeding virtual information to your doctors.

Tele-medicine can also include remote wound treatment, where doctors carefully explain over a medical call how to perform a vital operation. This could entail an emergency surgery, or a routine medical equipment adjustment. In either case, having a high-resolution camera to capture all of the details being presented is central to your doctors’ success.

Tele-Patient: Virtual Visitors

Tele-patient appointments are the most unique among the three virtual visits. They can include services from both tele-health and tele-medicine appointments, but with the added benefit of visitors.

Patients are allowed and encouraged to have other family members or caretakers present during tele-patient appointments. These visitors can either be in the same room as the patient, or use their own computer to login from a distance.

Tele-patient appointments offer a way for patients to feel at ease and cared for during these difficult times. They also promote social distancing while still allowing for quality healthcare.

Virtual Appointments With Tangent

The pandemic is in a star of limbo, where it’s unclear when its effects will dwindle. While the pandemic will surely pass, virtual appointments are here to stay. Hospitals need the best medical computers for their doctors to perform these visits. Learn more by contacting Tangent Sales today.

Medical grade computer for operating room

Best Medical Grade Computer For Operating Room Use

Operating rooms need to be sterile. While all areas of the hospital benefit from sanitary conditions, Operating rooms demand them. There is no room for error when your surgeons are at work. The wrong medical computer can pose serious risks in the operating room. From harboring bacteria to circulating dust, a non-operating designed medical grade computer can easily cause more harm than good. 

Tangent has designed the optimal medical grade computer for use in operating rooms, with features that help keep patients safe.

Fanless Medical Computer For Hospital Use

One of the biggest reasons why your surgeons may not want a medical grade computer in their operating room is their fans. Most computers rely on a fan to cool off the computer’s components. This fan, while vital, has the negative side effect of circulating air throughout the body of the computer and room it is in.

The result of this is that the medical computer becomes a dumping ground for the operating room’s dust. This dust not only reduces the efficacy of the medical grade computer’s fan, and can lead to overheating and long term damage. But this heated-up dust also acts as a breeding ground for bacteria.

The fan then circulates the new bacteria throughout the air in the room. For obvious reasons, this simply cannot happen in an operating room. Bacteria can find its way into a patient’s body and negatively affect their recovery, potentially leading to a re-hospitalization.

m24t medical grade computer
Tangent M24T Medical Computer

Tangent has solved this issue by using a fanless cooling system to cool every medical grade computer they create. The M24T medical grade computer utilizes a passive cooling system that keeps the unit cool without using outside air. The lack of a fan means the M24T also has a solid body, and does not circulate air whatsoever. This helps reduce dust build up in the unit, keeping your operating rooms cleaner and safer.

Antibacterial Medical Computer

On top of having a fanless cooling system, each medical grade computer from Tangent also has an antimicrobial casing. This casing reduces the risk of cross contamination in the operating room by mitigating the growth of bacteria on its surfaces. Surgeons can feel safer while performing a surgery knowing that their medical computer is not causing massive bacteria growth.

Tangent E24B Medical Grade Computer
Tangent E24B Medical Computer

The E24B from Tangent is one such medical grade computer that utilizes this antimicrobial casing. The E24B also features hot-swap battery technology. In the event of a power failure, the E24B is capable of running off its hot-swap batteries, allowing your doctors to finish their delicate work without worrying about a time crunch from a UPS system.

The Best Medical Grade Computer From Tangent

Your surgeons need the best equipment in their operating rooms. Don’t let them use a medical computer that could potentially cause problems. Tangent has designed their medical computers for safety and efficiency. For more information, contact Tangent Sales today.

Medix E22B

Medix E22B: Medical Computer For Hospital Use

The last thing your doctors want to be worrying about during an emergency is their equipment. There are over 130 million emergency room visits made by Americans each year according to the Center for Disease Control. That’s around 42 visits for every 100 people. When these sorts of emergencies occur, your doctors need to be ready to act. They cannot wait for their equipment to charge, or wait for slow software to start up. Doctors need the fastest medical computers available for emergency use.

The Medix E22B from Tangent is the perfect medical computer for emergency rooms. While other medical computers are suited for surgery, recovery, and billing room use, the E22B is a versatile machine that can rapidly adapt to the many demands of the emergency room.

Hot-Swap Batteries Inside Medical Computers

When one emergency occurs, the last thing your hospital staff needs is another. Sadly, some emergencies can’t be helped. Natural disasters, fires, and power outages are becoming increasingly common and can strike at nearly any time. When these sorts of emergencies do occur, your hospital’s utilities could be jeopardized. 

Hospitals utilize backup generators to keep their most vital operations flowing during power outages. However these generators cannot supply power to every point in a hospital that needs it. Some services must be stopped. With the Medix E22B, power outages don’t mean a stop in service.

The Medix E22B features hot-swap battery technology. The medical computer can be outfitted with three removable batteries. These batteries can be swapped out to charge on a separate charging dock throughout the day, keeping the E22B operating on a constant basis. The E22B also features a barrel plug for traditional wall outlets.

During a blackout, the E22B medical computer can run up 24 hourswithout needing to draw power from emergency sources. This can give your doctors ample time to see the remainder of their patients, finish vital work, and help perform emergency services.

Antimicrobial Medical Computers

The last thing your equipment should do during an emergency is cause more harm than good. Every medical computer from Tangent is designed with an antimicrobial coating. This coating reduces the spread of pathogens on the surface of the medical computer by mitigating the growth of bacteria. This can help create a safer, cleaner emergency room in your hospital.

Lightning Fast Solid State Drives

Medical software can be slow to load. That’s not to say it’s designed poorly, but rather that there is a lot to load. Medical records, patient information, and machine-learning tools all require time and disk space to adequately load. But this process can be greatly sped up with a NVMe solid state drive inside your medical computers. The Medix E22B from Tangent features a M.2 solid state drive. This slot allows your medical software programs to load up to 15 times faster than with traditional hard drive solutions.

Create A Better Emergency Room With Tangent

Emergency rooms are crucial to the well being of your local community. Make sure your doctors are outfitted with the best equipment while serving there. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information.

3 Workflows That Can Be Replaced With Medical Computers

Hospitals have learned a lot from this pandemic. Doctors, nurses, and medical assistants have all adapted to and overcome numerous challenges. Hospitals themselves were the site of many rapid advancements and have been pushed up years in terms of technological advancements. Yet hospitals’ workflows remain largely unchanged since the beginning of the pandemic. Hospitals should incorporate new workflows to meet the new skilled personnel and technology they employ. 

Hospitals can improve numerous workflows at once by adopting the latest medical computer technology from Tangent. Here are three that can all be accomplished with a single medical computer.

Human Milk Workflows

Keeping track of human milk has always been a necessary task in the maternity or perinatal ward. Human milk needs to be expressed, bottled, stored, and returned to the proper parent and baby multiple times a week. There is plenty of room for error in this process, but these errors can be devastating.

T-13 Medical Grade Tablet From Tangent
T-13 Medical Grade Tablet From Tangent

Reduce the chances of these errors occurring with Tangent medical computers. Medical computers like the T13 are built to facilitate human milk workflows. The T13 is a fully mobile medical computer, and able to move around the hospital with staff. Its medical grade antimicrobial components ensure that infection risks are fully mitigated. The T13 is also fully Cerner Validated for use with Cerner Millennium applications.

The T13’s Barcode scanner allows for easy tracking of expressed human milk. Simply attach a printed barcode label to a bottle of expressed milk, store it until it is needed, and rescan the bottle to pull up the receiving baby’s name, location, and specific dietary needs. Another scan of a baby’s wristband confirms the correct recipient, and that’s it! The T13 has built-in measures at every point of the human milk workflow to ensure that the right baby gets the right human milk.

Secure Login Capabilities With Medical Computers

Other medical computers by Tangent offer RFID and Smart Card reader capabilities. Each of these medical computers can use their scanners to solve another challenging workflow: secure logins.

IT professionals are constantly on the lookout for vulnerabilities in your hospital’s network, but the biggest risk remains your staff. Phishing attempts — where a hacker tries to get your employees to click a link in an email they link is legitimate —  are becoming more common with each passing day. These ransomware attacks cost hospitals a whopping $21 Billion last year alone.

In addition to keeping your staff informed on the latest best practices for cyber security, employing lengthy passwords throughout the hospital can reduce the risk of being hacked. With Tangent medical computers like the T24B can utilize their RFID and Smart Card readers to automatically login nurses, doctors, and medical assistants into their workstations. This allows employees to forgo remembering long, complex passwords while maintaining a high level of security.

24/7 Capable Medical Carts

Your hospital needs medical carts constantly. But medical carts have their own need: power. Some of these carts make use of onboard UPS systems, while others need to be charged on a regular basis. In either way, these medical carts will need to be out of commision for some period of time each day.

Tangent E24B Medical Computer
