With the country on the path towards reopening, hospitals have begun transitioning their facilities to accommodate regular appointments and patients. But will patients be willing to return to hospitals during this crisis? More patients than ever are seeing their doctors remotely via telemedicine technologies such as Medical All-In-One PCs. In addition, more Americans than ever are seeing trips to the hospital as risky. The question then becomes, how can hospitals create a welcoming environment for patients to want to return to?

Medical All-In-One PCs For Full Hospital Use

With the country on the path towards reopening, hospitals have begun transitioning their facilities to accommodate regular appointments and patients. But will patients be willing to return to hospitals during this crisis? More patients than ever are seeing their doctors remotely via telemedicine technologies such as Medical All-In-One PCs.  In addition, more Americans than ever are seeing trips to the hospital as risky. The question then becomes, how can hospitals create a welcoming environment for patients to want to return to?

Getting Patients Comfortable Again

Just a few months ago, hospitals were viewed as places where people would go to get healthier. It is possible to return the people’s viewpoint back to this by getting patients comfortable with the idea of going to the hospital again. While this is easier said than done, there are steps that hospitals can take to make patients more comfortable. Patients are already comfortable using medical all-in-one PCs and taking telemedicine away from them is not the answer. Instead, allowing patients to continue using telemedicine appointments will keep them comfortable and allow doctors and nurses to foster their patient relationships effectively. This can lead to patients ultimately returning to hospitals for elective procedures.

Explore Contactless Solutions

Even if not used in the home, telemedicine can play a part in healthcare. Allowing patients the option of seeing nurses via telemedicine on medical all-in-one PCs instead of in person before their doctor visits may help them feel safer. In addition, the use of a fully sanitizable touchscreen medical grade computer in a patient’s room can help them interact with their doctor in a safe, contactless way.

Utilize Technology To The Fullest

Above all, technology can help patients feel safe in the hospital after this crisis passes. With medical grade computers, patients can feel safe knowing that a fully antimicrobial enclosure is protecting their users. Both doctors and patients can use such medical grade computers to communicate in a social distant manner, all while staying safe.

Medical all-in-one PCs are a stepping stone in returning hospitals to a sense of normalcy across the country. With their fully sanitizable touchscreens and antimicrobial enclosures, they are safe and effective tools for healthcare reopening.

Medical PCs In The Hospital Setting

As the nation reopens, so too will our hospitals. The CDC has recently published guidelines for hospitals on how to go about opening their doors for services such as elective surgeries. As hospitals dealing with massive backlogs begin this process, making sure they have the equipment they need will be crucial. Medical PCs can help hospitals deal with this backlog in a safe and sanitary manner.

Best Medical Computer For Telemedicine

In these uncertain times, telemedicine has become an invaluable tool for healthcare facilities seeking to treat patients in the most effective way. Multiple branches of the U.S. government, along with health insurance companies and even internet providers have made it easier than ever to set up telemedicine. But when the nation comes out of this crisis, what will happen to the telemedicine infrastructure we have built up? There are now calls for a permanent lifting of telehealth restrictions after doctors, nurses, and patients have seen how much better this technology has made “going to the doctor.”

Medical Computers For Telemedicine

There is no telemedicine without the use of a medical computer. Medical computers are uniquely designed for use in the medical field. Every medical computer must meet rigid guidelines, such as being UL60601-Certified. Companies like Tangent take this further. Tangent computers are IP sealed to be water resistant. This makes them both easy to sanitize and resistant to their environment. Tangent computers are also antimicrobial, mitigating the growth of harmful pathogens on their surface.

Why Use Medical Computers For Telemedicine?

The convenience of using medical computers for telehealth is starting to be seen by both doctors and patients alike. Mike King, director of network and telecommunication operations at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has made a similar comment.

“Why should I go into a doctor’s office for a face-to-face consultation and waste half a day when I can do it from my office” by using telemedicine, King said.

With telehealth being used around the country, both patients and doctors are becoming acclimated to the use of medical computers for telemedicine. While many FCC and regulatory guidelines have been lifted in order to accommodate our rapidly changing situation, one guideline should remain: safe, antimicrobial, UL60601-Certified medical computers should be used in the hospital.
