Keeping Essential Employees Safe At Work

As more employees return to work, keeping them safe should be the top priority of every business. But as the pandemic continues on, it is becoming increasingly difficult to properly protect essential workers. Facemasks, regular handwashing, and social distancing efforts are key to protecting your essential employees, but there are other steps you can take to ensure their safety. By using antimicrobial, medical grade computers in place of traditional computers, your employees can feel safer knowing that they are using safe and sanitary computers.

Medical Grade Computers: Safe And Sanitary

How many employees touch a computer on any given day? If your employees work at a grocery store, chances are they share checkout lanes with each other throughout the day. Regularly cleaning these POS computers is a great way to stop the spread of germs, but employees may forget to clean their computer as regularly as they do the conveyor belt or customer card reader. With an antimicrobial computer at their side, employees can feel safe knowing that their computers take care of the disinfecting.

Antimicrobial medical grade computers from Tangent are computers that are specifically designed for use in high-germ scenarios. In today’s world, they double as a precautionary measure against the pandemic. Medical grade computers from Tangent are treated with an antimicrobial agent that makes their enclosure fully antimicrobial. Pathogens quickly die off on the surface of these devices, and their spread is mitigated.

With a fully washable touchscreen as well, antimicrobial medical grade computers from Tangent are easy to use. Just like your employee’s smartphones or tablets, medical grade computers from Tangent can be operated with just fingers. There’s no fancy system for employees to learn either as medical grade computers from Tangent use Windows 10 as their operating system, more than likely the same operating system employees use at home.

Tangent Cyber Security

How Can Hospitals Combat Hackers During This Pandemic?

Each and every day, hackers try their best to take down cybersecurity systems around the world, and those of hospitals are no exception. The New York Times has reported that Russian hackers have attempted to steal information on possible vaccines from the U.S. last week. In addition, over 140 high profile figures had their twitter accounts hacked last week in a devastating cyber attack. This only goes to show that even during a pandemic, cyber security must remain a top priority. Maintaining your hospital’s cybersecurity is crucial, here are three ways to help keep your hospital safe.

Choose The Right Medical Computers

Not every medical computer is created equal, and it shows when it comes to cyber security. Having secure medical computers is crucial for hospitals to thwart hacking and ransomware attempts, and there are no better medical computers for the job than those from Tangent. Medical grade computers from Tangent are built with your hospital’s safety in mind, both in the medical and cyber sense.

Medical grade computers like the M24T from Tangent come equipped with TPM 2.0 for maximum cybersecurity. This module ensures that the computer boots up and functions as it should, helping prevent costly breakdowns.  In addition, this module can prevent dictionary cyberattacks a method used by hackers to figure out passwords from occurring on your medical grade computers.

Keep Your Medical Grade Computers Updated

The longer a piece of software sits without being updated, the more time potential hackers have to crack it. When you update software on your medical computer, you’re not just receiving the latest additions. These updates make it harder for hackers to break into the software, as they now have to start from scratch in finding a vulnerability. Keeping your medical computers updated is the easiest way to help ward off potential cyber criminals.

Keep Your Doctors And Nurses Informed

Your medical computers are only as smart as the medical staff using them. It is important to train your staff not only how to use their medical grade computer, but also how to recognize suspicious activity. While this pandemic has strained hospital resources, it is this same strain that can make employees more susceptible to falling for cyber tricks like phishing scams. Make sure that your medical staff stay vigilant about such attempts.

Stay Safe With Tangent

Tangent medical computers are designed with antimicrobial enclosures and TPM modules to keep your hospital safe from physical and digital pathogens. Keep your hospital running inside and out with medical grade computers from Tangent.

Tangent remote monitoring for hospitals

What Is Remote Monitoring On Medical Computers?

There is a lot of talk about telehealth these days, and while it has been a vital tool during this pandemic, there have been other medical computer-based solutions that have been overlooked. One such solution is remote monitoring via medical computers, which can help hospitals continue to treat patients without putting them in harm’s way.

What Is Remote Monitoring On Medical Computers?

Simply put, remote monitoring takes the idea of telehealth to its logical endpoint. While telehealth is used primarily for appointments such as primary care visits, remote monitoring allows doctors to monitor the vitals of patients from their own home. This allows doctors access to the vital patient information they need to make healthcare decisions without putting either the doctor or patient at risk.

The same temporary rules that have made telehealth more accessible during the pandemic have also made remote monitoring more feasible. Now any hospital using medical grade computers can easily set up remote monitoring.

Remote Monitoring In The Home

Right now, high-risk patients have enough on their plate. Asking them to put their health on the line to come into the hospital might be a big ask. But the regular trips that these patients make to the hospital are also necessary for doctors to determine the next step of their care plan. Remote monitoring allows for doctors to get the information they need, and for patients to be out of harm’s way.

Major players in the healthcare industry, both private and public, are preparing for telehealth. Telehealth with medical computers has proven to be an effective way of social distancing, and could potentially save lives. Make sure that your hospital takes advantage of all the programs available, and implements this crucial technology.
Remote Monitoring On Tangent Medical Computers Is Easier Than Ever

Wearable sensors, self administered tests, implanted sensors, and more are now available for patients at home. The information these devices collect can be transmitted directly to their doctor’s medical grade computer. In essence, remote monitoring allows for pre-pandemic levels of patient care via medical grade computers.

Remote Monitoring In The Hospital

The obvious benefit to remote monitoring is that doctors can once again get the information they need to make informed decisions. But there are other benefits to hospitals in general. High-risk patients such as those with heart failure can be safely monitored at their home, allowing for more ICU beds to be available in this crisis.

Furthermore, remote monitoring can be used inside the hospital to keep track of infected patients on medical grade computers without putting medical staff at risk. Remote monitoring can even lead to faster response times.

AI Thermal Scanner For Elevated Skin Temperature Detection

AI Thermal Scanner For Better Skin Temperature Detection

While this pandemic continues, there is no such thing as “too much precaution.” Mitigating the risk of infection for those who leave their home will be crucial in preventing more infections. In order to do this, screening employees and customers for symptoms of infection should occur. While traditional temperature scanners are a great way to detect if someone has a fever, this method alone can put employees at risk. With an AI Thermal Scanner Kiosk from Tangent, risk to employees and your business can be minimized.

AI Thermal Scanner Kiosks: Better For Everyone

With AI Thermal Scanner Kiosks from Tangent, both employees and customers can feel safer while maintaining a semblance of normalcy. The kiosk can be set up at the entrance to your business, whether it be a grocery store, hotel, or retail location. When someone walks up to the kiosk, their skin temperature will be scanned. This process is done entirely without needing the potential entrant to touch the kiosk.

If the AI Thermal Scanner Kiosk detects the person’s skin temperature to be outside your predetermined range, a silent or audible alarm will be triggered to alert staff. Staff can then take the necessary precautions to either further screen the patron for a fever or deny them entry. With an AI Thermal Scanner Kiosk, the risks to both employees and guests is greatly reduced before the risk even enters your business.

Thermal Scanners: The Best First Defense

Thermal scanners work by detecting the skin temperature of the person in front of them. If their skin temperature is elevated, it could be a sign that the person is experiencing a fever. This process ensures that entrants who potentially have symptoms of infection never reach your employees or customers on the inside.

The AI Thermal Scanner Kiosk also uses its AI driven camera to detect whether or not a person is wearing a facemask. If the person being scanned is not, and your facility requires one, they will be informed of the requirement. This cuts down on the number of unmasked persons that your employees have to encounter.

Afterwards, entrants who meet your preset skin temperature guidelines can be tested with a traditional fever scanner as a second line of defense. With the combination of an AI Thermal Scanner Kiosk and fever scanner, your facility can offer employees and customers a sense of security they won’t find anywhere else.

The utilization of hot-swap battery technology on medical grade computers such as the Medix E22B and E24B allows these medical grade computers to run on a 24/7 continuous basis without needing to be plugged into an outlet.

Sanitizable Computers Designed For Pop Up And Mobile Clinics

Burlingame, CA 3/27/20 – As the world comes together to stave off the coronavirus pandemic, Tangent Computer Inc. has repurposed medical computers in their medical grade computer lineup to be fully usable by pop up and mobile clinics in order to ensure these facilities are fully equipped to deal with this pandemic.

Pop up and Mobile clinics are designed to be placed where they are most needed and may end up in locations without adequate shelter or power, such as parking lots. Tangent has taken this into account in their thinking of how to best serve medical workers on the front line of this coronavirus pandemic and has created two solutions.

In order to provide the safest possible working environment for medical workers at coronavirus pop up and mobile clinics, Tangent has designed their lineup of medical grade computers to be fully sanitizable. The touchscreens of Tangent’s medical grade computers are able to be cleaned with traditional cleaning materials without any damage to their screens. In addition to being fully santiziable, Tangent medical grade computers feature an antimicrobial enclosure for maximum sterilization.

The utilization of hot-swap battery technology on medical grade computers such as the Medix E22B and E24B allows these medical grade computers to run on a 24/7 continuous basis without needing to be plugged into an outlet.

Tangent hopes that these two solutions, when combined, allow their lineup of medical grade computers to be a reliable tool for medical workers on the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic.

As the number of U.S. cases of coronavirus rise, Tangent hopes to help stock pop up and mobile clinics with the equipment they need in order to combat this pandemic.
