Better Medical Computer-Aided Diagnosis

Better Medical Computer-Aided Diagnosis

Computer-aided diagnosis is rapidly becoming an integral part of every hospital’s toolbox.While currently primarily used only for immunostaining operations, CAD has many promising prospects for future use. But even now, state-of-the-art hospitals utilize CAD to analyze x-rays, propose diagnoses, and get important second opinions from an unbiased source. Preparing your hospital with the best medical computers now means that as CAD systems evolve, your physicians will be at the forefront of medical technology.

How CAD Works On Medical Computers

While CAD may seem daunting, it is actually quite easy to understand. CAD systems utilize a mix of machine learning algorithms that are designed to identify harmful anomalies in the body. These systems can be used by radiologists and clinicians to get second opinions on mammograms and other x-ray based applications.

The E24B sports an impressive 24 inch screen that allows clinicians to see every detail an x-ray can offer. The adaptive touch screen allows users to zoom in and out on CAD readouts and see areas the software has highlighted for further investigation.

Practical CAD Uses Today In The Hospital

Hospitals use a number of computer-aided diagnosis programs today. While some A.I. based programs seek to replace doctors in the diagnosis process, CAD systems simply augment the process. CAD systems are used to detect a number of illnesses including: pulmonary nodes, lung cancer, and even polyps in the colon. In all of these instances, CAD systems have allowed doctors to analyze bodily hazards with a fine-tooth comb.

CAD Uses In The Near Future

CAD systems are constantly adapting. New uses for CAD systems on medical computers are possible thanks to its basis on machine learning. These machine learning models become more proficient at identifying issues as diagnosis methods become more refined and systematic.CAD programs on medical computers will be able to identify the earliest signs of diseases like Diabetes, as well as alert doctors to abnormalities that could potentially become an issue.

Medical Computer Tablets For Better Communcation

Better Internal Communication In Hospitals With Medical Tablets

The medical industry has made many strides in their approach to workflows to combat this pandemic. However there are still a number of areas for hospitals to improve. Communication is one such area. There are few other places where communication is as critical to outcomes as the hospital. Everything from proper diagnoses, medication, and caregiving requires clear communication throughout the hospital.

Despite this, hospitals still lag in facilitating better communication among medical staff. A study by the Ghent University Hospital found that, “There is room for improvement of both content and timeliness of written communication.” The study also concluded that written communication remains a key tool in hospitals, despite their ever growing digitization.

Hospitals have begun using medical computers for everything from telehealth appointments to medication witnessing. They can improve their internal communications in the same way by utilizing medical grade tablets.

Better Communication With Medical Tablets

Doctors and nurses are constantly on the move throughout the hospital. Their daily tasks can leave them with little downtime to sit at their desk and check their emails. This lack of time can lead to important queries going unanswered, leading to delays in treatment or frustration on the side of the sender. 

Medical professionals can stay on top of their internal communications with medical tablets. Medical tablets like the T13 from Tangent are fully equipped to help keep doctors informed throughout their day. Doctors can easily check on emails and correspondence while on the move throughout the hospital. They can also check on a patient’s medical records, information, and more while on their way to check-ups.

T-13 Medical Tablet from Tangent

Nurses can use the built-in barcode scanner to easily keep track of medication while administering it. Using the T13’s built-in RFID scanner, nurses can verify their badge and medication witnessing password without having to manually enter it. This secure process can save your nurses from having to remember long passwords, and allows IT to implement longer, stronger passwords system wide.

Mobile Workflows With Medical Computers

It’s been many years since congress has mandated hospitals to begin using medical computers to keep track of medical records. The resultant electronic medical records (EMRs) softwares that have emerged have been a productivity boom for the medical industry. EMRs are a safe and quick way for doctors to record and observe their patient’s medical information from anywhere in the hospital. This mobility has made EMRs an indispensable tool in every hospital.

Other workflows in your hospital can also benefit from enhanced mobility. Medical carts specifically are already mobile, but can see an increase in their efficiency when equipped with Tangent medical computers.

Better Medical Record Updating

Nurses have been busier than ever during this pandemic, running around the hospital to perform multiple tasks. They may find themselves in situations where they need to access medical records, but are nowhere near their medical computer workstation.

Tangent medical grade tablets for vaccination stations

Better Vaccination Stations With Advanced Medical Grade Tablets

If you have tried to get a vaccine in recent days, chances are you have had to go through a patchwork system of government websites and private companies. This confusing process can show that a person is eligible for the vaccine on one website and not eligible in another. Luckily, this is about to change. The Biden administration is predicting that by April 19, all U.S. adults will be eligible for the vaccine.

Your hospital’s members have been confused for long enough. When it comes time for their vaccine appointment, make sure that the process is fully streamlined and easy for them. One of the best ways to streamline the vaccination process is with medical grade tablets.

Medical Grade Tablets For Vaccination Stations

Currently, many U.S. hospitals are relying on medical carts and other transportable medical computer stations for their vaccination clinics. While these medical carts certainly get the job done, they have some major drawbacks when it comes to facilitating vaccinations.

They may not be as portable as they seem. Vaccination clinics can see long lines at some points in the days, and virtually no one at other parts. With medical carts, there’s no flexibility in transitioning your medical staff from one area of the vaccination clinic to another.

Tangent medical tablets for vaccination stations
T-13 Medical Tablet from Tangent

That’s where medical grade tablets like the T13 from Tangent come in. The T13 is a robust medical grade computer contained in a portable, easy to use tablet. The dynamic touchscreen allows medical staff to carry the tablet with one hand and easily operate it with another. 

The T13 comes equipped with a barcode scanner. This barcode scanner can help integrate your vaccination process directly into your existing medical computer infrastructure, allowing nurses to print off vaccination record labels and quickly scan them rather than manually writing them out by hand.

What’s more, the T13 features an antimicrobial coating on its casing. This antimicrobial casing mitigates the growth of harmful pathogens on its surface, allowing your nurses to work longer in between their regularly scheduled cleaning procedures. This antimicrobial coating works in tandem with the T13 medical grade tablet’s barcode scanner to reduce the number of writing utensils that your hospital needs to constantly clean and reuse in its vaccination clinic.

Vaccinate Easier With Tangent

Tangent has remained committed to helping our essential medical heroes throughout this pandemic by providing them with the best possible medical grade computer equipment. Now that we are in the homestretch, Tangent is one again offering hospitals an easy and efficient way to help their patients. For more information, contact Tangent Sales today.

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.

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.

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.
