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.

Powerful medical computers like the E24B can be used to quickly and accurately display CAD readouts. 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.

Improve Your Hospital With Tangent

Communication is key in the hospital, and Tangent is here to ensure medical staff are able to communicate in a safe and effective manner. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information.

medical computers mobile workflow

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

3 Uses For Medical Computers In The Hospital

When looking for medical equipment for your hospital, it can be challenging to find the right medical computers. Some are specialized in for use in key areas, while others are too lackluster in their features. Your hospital can get best of both worlds with Tangent medical computers, designed for a wide range of uses in the hospital while staying strong in select niches.

1. EHR Software Without The Hassle

A study by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health and Information Technology recently found that 96 percent of U.S. hospitals use certified EHR technology. It is apparent that EHRs have become the goto way to handle medical records. But EHR software is only as good as the machine it’s running on.

Some medical computers are designed without EHR software in mind. This can lead to slow load times. Medical computers like the M24T from Tangent are built with medical software in mind.

Tangent human milk workflow medical computer

Human Milk Management Medical Computers

Hospitals have learned how to adapt to this pandemic. They have implemented many procedures and upped their sanitization efforts. Vaccination efforts are quickly expanding across the country, and the end of the pandemic is within sight. However, hospitals should not simply return to normal procedures. The same sanitation and safety efforts brought on by the pandemic should be expanded to the entire hospital.

Your hospital’s human milk workflow is one area that may be in need of this expanded care. Human milk management can be a struggle, but it doesn’t have to be.

Better Human Milk Management

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.

Tangent medical computers for human milk workflow

Better Human Milk Workflow With Tangent Medical Computers

It goes without saying that one of the best foods for newborn babies is their mother’s milk. Breastfeeding babies is good for both the mother and the baby itself, and can help mothers form an intimate relationship with their new progeny. But keeping newborn babies adequately fed in the neonatal intensive care unit right after birth can be a struggle. Keeping track of both mothers and newborns, having mothers produce a sustainable supply of breastmilk, and more can clog up your hospital’s human milk workflow. With Tangent’s HumanMilk workflow solution however, these problems can be a thing of the past.

Better Human Milk Workflow With Tangent Medical Computers

With Tangent, human milk workflows become a breeze. First, a mother expresses milk via a pump or whichever apparatus your hospital prefers. A nurse or medical professional will then create a barcode and affix it to the bottle. After that, the nurse places the bottle into a refrigerator for safekeeping.

These first few steps may sound familiar and are most likely already a part of your hospital’s human milk workflow. But creating and preserving human milk is only the first half of the equation. Where Tangent steps in is in the second half.

The nurse then scans the baby’s wristband and bottle to confirm a match, and then feeds the baby.

The T-13 medical tablet is easily carried, allowing nurses and medical professionals to move along their workflow with ease. An antimicrobial coating which mitigates the growth of harmful pathogens also is present on the T-13’s casing, creating a safer and cleaner working environment for your hospital’s staff.

Medical Grade Tablets For Efficient Hospitals

The winter surge of infections is clearly coming to an end, with infections consistently trending downwards in the last few weeks. With vaccines being rolled out, and U.S. estimates suggesting that every American will be vaccinated by the summer, the end of this pandemic is within sight. However, until every American is vaccinated and variants of the virus are fully curtailed, the U.S. medical system needs to remain vigilant against the pandemic. 

Doctors and nurses need the right equipment to keep patients safe during these times. Equipment that can allow them to adapt to any circumstance or hospitalization rate in the hospital, and medical grade tablets are just that.
