Medical Computers Why Hospitals Need Them

Medical Computers: Why Hospitals Need Them

For their entire existence, hospitals have only had one major goal: to provide quality healthcare to their local community. To do this, doctors have always used the most advanced technology available to them. In the sixties, that meant creating and implementing the first artificial hearts into patients. Innovations like these have led to people living longer, healthier lives. Now, the latest medical innovation is the very one you are using to read this: medical grade computers.

Medical grade computers have changed the way hospitals do virtually everything. Gone are the days where scores of staff were tasked with organizing and ferrying paper health records. No more are the days where pagers were the only reliable way to get ahold of patients. Gone are the days of inefficiency. Now with every doctor having their own medical computer, hospitals are able to see more patients and treat them with higher accuracy.

Of course, not every medical computer is created equal. Your hospital needs the highest acumen of medical grade computers possible. Here are five reasons why your hospital needs medical computers, and which features to be on the lookout for.

How A Medical Grade Computer Can Help Prevent Nosocomial Infections

Even before the pandemic, nosocomial infections were a scourge on hospitals. Nosocomial infections refer to diseases caught while in the hospital. These diseases can greatly complicate your hospital’s workflow. Say a patient in recovery catches an infection. Suddenly, they may need emergency treatment and their bed for days or potentially weeks longer than anticipated. The costs to both the patient and the hospital can be astronomical.

Tangent M24T Medical Computer

You can help prevent these infections with the right medical grade computers. Medical grade computers like the M24T from Tangent come equipped with a trusted antimicrobial coating. This coating greatly mitigates the growth of bacteria across the computer’s surfaces. 

Think about it: your medical grade computers scattered across the many patient rooms in your hospital receive a lot of traffic. Multiple LVNs, RNs, and doctors will use the same medical computer in one day. There were an estimated 687,000 nosocomial infections in U.S. acute care hospitals in 2015 alone, with an estimated 72,000 resulting deaths according to the CDC. Imagine if the risk of them spreading germs across these computers could be reduced. 

A Fanless Design For Enhanced Cleanliness

If you haven’t cracked open a computer before, you may not be aware of how much dust can build up in them. Computers are magnets for dust, thanks in part to their fan-based cooling system. Computer CPUs create a lot of heat (it takes quite a bit of power to make everything behind the screen happen), and yet CPUs are highly sensitive to heat. That’s why many computers feature fans attached to a metal heat sink on top of their CPU. The heat sink allows heat to flow through it, and then the fan circulates air through the sink to cool everything down.

For a standard work setting, this is fine. There’s just one problem: the design of heat sinks also means that any dust in the air the fan pushed through them is liable to get trapped. IT departments can regularly clean these heat sinks out, but for some areas any amount of dust can be a problem. 

Take the surgery room for instance. Imagine if you had a fan pointed at a bucket of dust blowing constantly while your surgeons performed a routine operation. Suffice to say, that wouldn’t be good. Some medical computers essentially do just that by circulating dusty air around rooms.

Every one of Tangent’s medical grade computers is designed with a robust fanless cooling system. This system keeps the medical computer cool, without spreading dust around. The closed body design of Tangent’s lineup lends itself to creating a more sanitary environment.

What Does It Mean For Medical Grade Computers To Be IP Rated?

You have heard of IP, or Ingress Protection, ratings before and wondered what they referred to. In short, an IP rating certifies that a device is capable of repelling some amount of water and or dust. Different ratings provide different levels of protection. Most consumer and commercial grade computers do have have any such rating. Users therefore have to be especially careful when cleaning them, as one slipup could lead to the destruction of the entire system.

But why are IP ratings important? In the medical setting, they are crucial. We have already outlined the potential risks that come with a dusty environment. But IP ratings go beyond this, allowing for some contact with liquids. This is because medical grade computers with an IP rating have a sealed enclosure With an IP rating of 65, most standard detergents can be used on a medical computer regularly without harm. 

UL60601 Standards: Keeping Your Hospital Safe

HIPAA regulations are designed to keep a patient’s personal life private. They ensure that patients can feel comfortable divulging sensitive information to their doctor without fear of repercussions. But there is another, lesser known set of regulations that also work to keep your patients safe with medical grade computers. 

IEC 60601 is a set of standards designed to ensure that medical electrical equipment like medical grade computers is up to snuff. In the United States, these standards have been translated into UL60601 standards. These standards, among other things, ensure that every medical computer sold in the United States does not interfere with other sensitive equipment.

Medical equipment like pace makers could potentially be affected by electric radiation coming off a commercial computer. The right medical grade computers ensure that your patients and medical equipment stay safe from potential electrical hazards.

Advanced Software Ready

Software has come a long way in the last 20 years, especially when on medical grade computers. In the early 2000s, a gigabyte was still considered to be a massive amount of storage. A gigabyte flash drive would run a pretty penny. Now however, nearly every piece of software is multiple gigabytes, and takes even more gigabytes of RAM to run. 

Take Electronic Health Records, or EHR, software for instance. This software may seem not as resource intensive as other pieces of medical software. But over time,many have evolved from simple spreadsheets to entire care suites. Future-proofing for newer medical software has never been so important.

Tangent medical grade computers are designed with the future in mind. The E24B from Tangent features an NVMe storage slot. This slot, when coupled with an NVMe SSD, can perform up to 30 times faster than traditional HDD systems. In non-tech jargon, this amounts to far quicker computer start up times, software start up times, and loading speeds. With this SSD system, the E24B can handle today’s technical demands, and tomorrow’s.

4 reasons to incorporate medical computers into your hospital

4 Reasons To Incorporate Medical Tablets Into Your Hospital

Hospitals are sites of constant innovation. Over the course of the pandemic, doctors and nurses have made do with what they had, fashioning PPE out of plastic bags and making the most of their situation. Now that vaccines are widely available, and we are on the other end of the delta variant surge, now is the time to start thinking about the equipment they’ll carry into the future. Doctors and nurses shouldn’t have to worry about old equipment, or a lack thereof. They deserve quality equipment that they can depend on. If that’s not reason enough, here are four more reasons why your hospital should incorporate new equipment like medical tablets

Free Up Desk Space

Your facilities team has no doubt had to switch around your hospital’s layout over the course of the pandemic. Perhaps even multiple times. In these change ups, some employees may have lost their working space. Or maybe their workflow is such that they rarely have time to sit at their desk at all.

T-13 Medical Tablet from Tangent

Medical tablets like the T13 can help doctors and nurses do their work while on the move, without needing a desk. The T13 is a full medical PC in a small, portable package. It has the power to run standard medical programs while still being light enough to carry.

Antimicrobial Medical Tablets

While hygiene was always an important part of any hospital’s success, it became the top priority during the pandemic. Hygienic standards were crucial to keeping hospital staff safe. Going forward, the threat imposed by nosocomial infections will re-emerge as a potential issue for hospitals.

medical tablet medical tablets medical grade environment
Tangent Medix M8

The T13 features an antimicrobial coating which can help reduce the chance of nosocomial infections spreading throughout the hospital. This coating mitigates the growth of harmful bacteria across the tablet’s surfaces, helping to keep your hospital sanitary.

24/7 U.S. Based Technical Support

In an emergency, the last thing your doctors will want to do is spend crucial minutes on hold, trying to call for critical technical support. Tangent offers a robust, 24/7 technical support service for all of their medical tablets. This service is available at any time, for any issue large or small. 

Our agents are based in the United States, and will be able to understand the problems your team is having with extreme accuracy. With constant availability, your hospital’s medical tablets will be back in fighting shape in the rare chance there is an issue with them.

Hot-Swap Battery Ready Medical Tablets

Your doctors are on their feet for a large majority of their shift. Just as they can’t always be at their desk to use their medical computers, they can’t hang around an outlet and wait for their medical tablet to charge.

Tangent’s T13 comes with the option for hot-swap batteries. These batteries can be charged on a separate dock from the T13, and can be switched out with ease. This way, your doctor’s medical tablets will always be ready for use.

Improved Your Hospital With Tangent

Now is the time to upgrade your hospital’s equipment. There are many reasons to do so, but one stands out above the rest: ensuring your doctors have the equipment they need. For more information, contact Tangent Sales today.

Telehealth For Quarantined Patients

Telehealth Options For Quarantined Patients

The top priority of any hospital is ensuring the health and safety of patients. The complications of the pandemic have made this mission that much more difficult. Doctors and nurses don personal protective gear each and every time they see a quarantined patient. While effective, this approach to caring for quarantine patients leaves room for human error. Reducing the amount of time medical staff spend with sick patients can reduce the risk associated. There are telehealth options that can help keep your quarantined patients in constant contact with their doctors, without putting either party in harm’s way.

Telehealth Made Easy For Quarantined patients

Right now, routine check ups on quarantined patients most likely require your doctors to be there in person. They talk with the patient about their health and help put them at ease. While there are some times when doctors will need to be in the room with these patients, many times there is no need.

Giving quarantined patients access to a medical tablet can reduce these unnecessary encounters. Your IT department simply sets up these medical tablets with restrictions on a patient’s access to them. Devices from Tangent like the T13 come equipped with a forward facing camera. Your patients can then use the tablet to perform routine telehealth appointments with their doctors and nurses. 

T-13 Medical Tablet from Tangent

Depending on your hospital’s device policies, these medical tablets can also serve as entertainment systems for your patients. Giving patients limited internet access, you can keep them entertained during their quarantine. 

Safe With Medical Tablets

Tangent medical tablets like the T13 feature an antimicrobial enclosure. This enclosure mitigates the growth of harmful bacteria across the device’s surfaces. In conjunction with regular disinfectants, this coating can help keep your patients and doctors safe while using their medical tablets.

Doctors Benefit Too

Doctors can make use of larger medical grade computers like the M24T to access telehealth appointments with quarantined patients. The M24T features a wide, 24 inch touchscreen monitor. Doctors can view patient records on one side of their screen while chatting with patients on the other.

Tangent medical grade computers are the best medical computers

The M24T also comes with an optional front webcam that can take clear video of your doctors for these appointments. This medical computer is also a robust workstation that can handle all of your doctor’s medical programs with ease.

Better Workflows For Quarantined Patients

Quarantined patients have become a mainstay in hospitals since the beginning of this pandemic. Tangent medical computers can help your doctors and nurses stay in contact with your patients while remaining safe. For more information, Contact Tangent Sales today.

Medical Tablets

Medical Tablets For A Medical Grade Environment

When you think of your hospital, what comes to mind? You no doubt think of a place your local community depends on for quality healthcare. A place where your doctors, nurses, and medical staff all perform vital services each day for the greater good. But these days, you also probably think about the cleanliness of your hospital. As the pandemic continues on, hospitals need to remain vigilant in their sanitation practices. The right medical tablets can bolster these efforts and help create a cleaner, safer medical grade environment.

Medical Tablets: What Are They?

Medical tablets are not just another type of computer for your doctors to casually use. They can replace nearly every other computer that your doctors interact with. Unlike traditional tablets, medical tablets are specifically designed for the medical setting. The M8 from Tangent was built from the ground up for medical grade environments. It can run either on Windows or Android, and is capable of displaying many different medical programs.

Antimicrobial Coatings: Cleaner and Safer

While hospitals have increased their sanitation protocols during this pandemic, there is simply never enough. As soon as an area in your medical grade environment is touched, it becomes a liability. But what if this effect could be lessened? Medical tablets like the T13 from Tangent do just that. The T13 features an antimicrobial enclosure which can reduce the spread of germs in the hospital. The enclosure mitigates the growth of harmful bacteria across the computer’s surfaces, and thus your hospital as well.

Medical PCs uses

4 Uses For Medical PCs In The Hospital

The pandemic threw hospital budgets into disarray last year. Elective surgeries were cancelled, and hospitals had to make tough decisions about where to make cuts. Major equipment purchases may have been stalled or delayed. While the pandemic has continued on this year, your hospital cannot afford to delay acquiring vital new equipment like medical PCs. Medical PCs can help your hospital in more ways than you might think, and can help your hospital emerge from the pandemic on solid ground.

Medical PCs In The Pharmacy

Medix T13

Pharmacies are critical components of any hospital. Doctors prescribe treatments to patients, but it is ultimately the Pharmacy that delivers the medicine them. Medical grade computers can elevate the productivity of these spaces. Pharmacists can use medical grade computers to keep better track of inventory, look up drug information, and as a point-of-sale system. This three-in-one approach can reduce the amount of equipment your pharmacists need to do their job. Medical PCs like the Medix T13 even come with an optional barcode scanner and stand to help your workers do their job.

Creating A Cleaner Hospital

Medical computerss from Tangent also have a distinct advantage over other computers: their antimicrobial coating. This coating mitigates the growth of bacteria and other pathogens on the computers surface. Doctors and nurses can use a Tangent medical PC without worrying about the potential effects of cross contamination. This coating, combined with regular cleanings, can help produce a safer working environment.

Medical PCs For Electronic Health Records

M8 medical PCs have all the power and capabilities of traditional computers, in a compact form. M8 tablets can serve as spare computer for your nurses when no available desks are present.

Multipurpose Machines From Tangent

Tangent offers a variety of medical PCs designed for multiple applications throughout the hospital. For more information, contact Tangent Sales today.

Tangent medical computers for medical imaging

Medical Computers For Medical Imaging

Medical imaging has been one of the premier medical advancements of the last century. Doctors can utilize x rays, MRI machines, and tests to get a look inside a patient’s body. These processes have led to better diagnostic capabilities and a more precise medical process. But these imaging technologies are only as good as the equipment they are connected to. Your doctors need the right medical computers to receive medical imaging files, and Tangent has them.

Medical Imaging Made Easy

Medical imaging typically requires a device such as an MRI or xray machine. These machines do the heavy lifting of creating images for your doctors to investigate. But the medical computer that displays these images is equally important.

Medical computers like the M24T from Tangent come equipped with a wide touchscreen. Your doctors can use this screen to get a full and clear view of the medical image they are parsing. 

m24t medical grade computer
Tangent M24T Medical Computer

The touchscreen also allows your doctors to enhance and zoom in on images to get a closer look. The M24T’s SSD combined with its 8th generation Intel processor ensure that your doctors can manipulate and study these medical images without lag.

Better Diagnostics 

Medical computers also have the ability to send and receive medical images with ease. Once a file has been transferred to a medical computer, your medical staff can send it to any other point in the hospital. 

For instance, let’s say a nurse is drawing blood. They then send the blood to the lab for testing. The test results can easily be sent via a medical computer right back to the doctor that ordered them. The doctor can then parse the test results and make accurate decisions.

This is also true for medical images from MRI or xray machines. In both cases, doctors are able to quickly send results to patients, lab technicians, or other doctors for second opinions. They can also order print outs for physical viewing.

Safe and Sanitary Medical Computers

Medical computers from Tangent like the E24B all feature antimicrobial coatings. These coatings prevent harmful bacteria from proliferating on the surface of the medical computer.

Improve With Tangent Medical Computers

Tangent medical computers are designed to help doctors do their tasks, whatever they may be. When it comes to medical imaging,  they can help doctors make clear and concise treatment decisions. For more information, contact Tangent Sales today.

Tangent medical computers: 5 uses

5 Uses For Medical Computers

It may seem like the uses of medical computers mirror those of traditional computers, and that the two are interchangable. They both send emails, can handle spreadsheets, and can access the internet. But the uses of medical computers are far more exact and tailored to the hospital environment. Here are five of the top uses for medical computers.

Medical Imaging With Medical Computers

Medical imaging requires the use of complex machinery like X-ray, ultrasound, and MRI Machines. Hospital staff nearly always need a reliable medical computer in order to operate these machines. Tangent medical computers like the M24T feature a lightning fast NVMe SSD. This allows the medical computer to load medical imaging software in a snap, and perform tasks as fast as your machinery will allow.

Telehealth Appointments

The pandemic continues to make clear the importance of telehealth appointments in the medical space. These appointments allow patients who may struggle to reach the hospital a quick and convenient way to get the medical care they need. Tangent computers all feature front facing cameras. These cameras are perfect for giving your patients the face-to-face time with their doctors that they need.

Patient Monitoring

Just as medical computers can help your doctors connect with patients, they can also help them to monitor important medical information. Remote monitoring technology coupled with Tangent computers can allow your doctors to receive real time information from their patients. They can then use this data to recommend treatments, call patients in for emergency care, and generally help patients in a way not possible before.

Medical Computers For Surgery Procedures

Surgery rooms need to be sterile, and traditional computers can detract from a room’s sanitation. They can become breeding grounds for harmful bacteria and also circulate dusty air throughout the room. Tangent medical computers like the E24B feature an antimicrobial enclosure that mitigates the growth of harmful bacteria. They also come with a fanless cooling system to keep your computers from circulating air. 

Tangent E24B Medical Grade Computer

Rapid Electronic Health Records Access

Your doctors need to be able to access their patient’s information quickly. The same NVMe SSD slot that Tangent computers feature can also be used to store Electronic Health Record software. This allows the software to boot up and load files quickly and accurately.

Choose Tangent

There are plenty of use cases for medical computers in the hospital. But not every medical computer is built equally. Tangent goes to great lengths to ensure that each medical computer by them is built to last in a medical environment. For more information, contact Tangent Sales today. 

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.

Tangent sanitary medical computers

3 Sanitation Features That Medical Computers Need

What’s at the top of your checklist when looking for new medical computers? Performance is probably near the top. Your doctors need fast and reliable equipment that can perform a variety of duties. But while performance is crucial to the efficacy of your computers, there’s another area worth considering: sanitation.

Multiple doctors and staff work with computers within a day. These computers can quickly and accidentally become a site for cross contamination within the hospital. This can lead to nosocomial infections, or worse. Tangent designs their medical computers to reduce these risks, prioritizing their sanitation features to help keep hospitals safe.

Antimicrobial Coating

Multiple people use a medical computer on any given day. Whether they are in a patient’s room or nursing station, medical staff routinely share this equipment. While sanitary precautions can help stop the spread of germs on these devices, these precautions can only go so far. That’s why Tangent includes an antimicrobial coating on all of their medical computers.

This antimicrobial coating is spread evenly over the surfaces of a medical computer. It mitigates the growth of harmful pathogens, preventing them from thriving upon contact. This can help reduce the risks imposed by traditional computers in the hospital. 

Fanless Cooling System For Medical Computers

One of the biggest reasons why other computers are not used in sensitive rooms such as the operating room are because of their fans. These fans are crucial to cooling off the computer, but have the negative effect of circulating bacteria and dust all around a room. This can cause potential health hazards for patients undergoing a surgery, and also cause wear and tear on the computer.

m24t medical grade computer
Tangent M24T Medical Computers

Medical computers like the M24T from Tangent alleviate this problem by using a fanless cooling system. This system keeps the computer cool without needing a fan. The solid body design saves your IT department valuable maintenance time, and causes the M24T to be far cleaner than a fan based computer.

IP Rated, Washable Screen
