Medical Grade Computers Built For Quality Care Telemedicine

Telehealth has become a lifeline for doctors and patients seeking to establish some sense of normality during these trying times. While telehealth has been around long before the pandemic began, it’s use has skyrocketed. According to GlobalData, 79% of medical specialists said they were now using telemedicine in their hospital setting, setting a trend of using this technology may not be quick to fade. At-risk patients can safely see their doctors without being put in harm’s way, and doctors have to interact in close contact with fewer people on a daily basis.

This win-win situation has been made easier than ever thanks to loosening restrictions. Federal agencies, insurance companies, and hospitals have all made the use of medical grade computers for telehealth possible. As more doctors and patients become accustomed to telemedicine, regulators have been considering keeping these restrictions loosened. If this is the case then telemedicine may be here to stay, and choosing the right medical grade computers to use will be crucial to every hospital’s success.

Medical Grade Computers Built For Telemedicine

Not every medical grade computer is built specifically for telemedicine, in fact most are not. A good medical grade computer for telemedicine should be designed for virtual meetings, like the newly enhanced H22 from Tangent. The H22 medical computer from Tangent is a freshly designed computer ready for telemedicine.

Sporting a front-facing camera and fully santiziable touchscreen, doctors can easily and safely talk to patients virtually. The H22 medical grade computer’s antimicrobial mitigates the growth of pathogens and helps keep your hospital safe.

Talk To Patients On The Move

Your doctors are busy, and their time is precious. Telemedicine helps doctors see more patients virtually, but requires them to be firmly planted at their desk. That is, unless they use medical grade computer tablets like the T13 from Tangent. With the T13 medical tablet, doctors can analyze patient charts, catch up on their emails, and even start or end telehealth appointments while on the move. Your doctors can effectively be in two places at once with medical grade tablets in their hands.

Good posture at medical computers is important

Good Sitting Posture At Your Medical Computer

As the pandemic continues on, your doctors are no doubt making more use of their medical computers for telehealth purposes. Loosening restrictions by the federal government have made implementing telehealth solutions in the hospital easier and safer than ever. But as a consequence of this, doctors are spending more time sitting down at their medical computers with patients than they normally would. We’ve come up with some great ways to ensure that your doctors and nurses maintain good health by maintaining good posture at their medical computers.

Why Sitting Posture At Medical Computers Is Important

Medical computers are tools designed to increase the wellbeing of others, but without proper posture these efforts can have a negative impact on a doctor’s health. Poor sitting posture can lead to:

  • Increased strain on the body
  • Reduced spine health
  • Above average damage to joints and muscles.

Over time the lasting consequences of poor posture can negatively impact one’s quality of life, and lead to health complications down the road. But the negative health effects of poor posture can easily be avoided.

Maintaining Good Posture In The Hospital

Good posture isn’t just something you learn, it’s a lifestyle decision that you live each day. For doctors at medical computers, posture is something that can be practiced each day to increase overall health.

When sitting at your medical computer, it is important to avoid crossing your knees and ankles, as this can put unnecessary strain on the joints and muscles of these body parts. Keep your legs in front of you, inline with your hips. Likewise, keep your arms at right angles towards the keyboard. Your medical computer should have standard VESA mounting, and be capable of being adjusted directly to eye level. You don’t want to be straining your neck to look down at your medical computer’s monitor.

Above all, make sure you are sitting up straight. It is more than tempting to slink back into your chair, but keeping your chair flush against your back can prevent a slow fall into this position. Your height plays a big factor into all of this, make sure that your desk and medical computer are calibrated to your height accordingly. Your equipment should work around you, not the other way around.

Maintain Good Posture With Tangent

The posture of your doctors is crucial to your hospital’s long term success. Health doctors make healthy patients, and tangent is here to help. Tangent’s lineup of medical computers are capable of being mounted, making them easy to customize for an individual’s unique posture requirements. Give your doctors the posture aid they need with medical computers from Tangent.

How To Easily Take Customer’s Skin Temperatures

Taking customer’s skin temperatures has become one of the most widespread ways to screen for symptoms of infection during this pandemic. While fever detection may be useful, it also has its drawbacks. Take for instance, Disneyworld’s approach to fever screening. Patrons have their temperature taken by park staff using handheld fever detectors. If their temperature exceeds the normal range, they are asked to step into a cooling tent and given water. If after a second test they are found to have a fever, they are asked to leave.

While this approach does weed out potentially infected persons, it has one fatal flaw: it asks the workers to be in direct contact with potentially infected persons. One slip-up, and the entire screening staff could become infected. Detecting fevers using staff simply puts too much risk on your workers and your business. But there is another way.

With a Elevated Skin Temperature Detection Kiosk from Tangent, fever detection efforts do not have to put workers at risk.

Elevated Skin Temperature Detection Kiosk

With an Elevated Skin Temperature Detection Kiosk from Tangent, detecting symptoms of fevers does not have to put workers at risk. Simply place the Elevated Skin Temperature Detection Kiosk in your business’ entryway. Then, the automated thermal camera will detect when customers approach and guide them to have their skin temperature checked.

In a handsfree process, the thermal kiosk guides the patron through having their temperature checked. In as little as one second, the A.I. powered thermal camera scans the patron’s skin for their temperature. If their temperature meets your preset range, they are cleared for entry. If it exceeds your range, a silent or audible alarm will trigger to alert staff.

What happens next is completely at your discretion. Ask the patron to leave, or have their temperature double checked with a traditional fever detector. In either case, you are in control of what happens to your business.

Elevated Skin Temperature Detection Kiosk: More Than Just Temperature Checking

The Elevated Skin Temperature Detection Kiosk also comes equipped with a face mask detector, allowing you to ask patrons who are not wearing masks to put one on. This prevents potentially aggressive encounters between agitated patrons and your staff. This optional feature is perfect for businesses with a mandatory mask policy.

 

With an Elevated Skin Temperature Detection Kiosk, you are in control of what happens to your business. Contact Tangent Sales today to learn more about this Elevated Skin Temperature Detection Kiosk, and more ways to stay safe.

Keeping Safe With A Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk

Stores all across the country are facing a critical question: How can reopening be done in a safe manner? While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to reopening, there are steps that each store can take to ensuring that the most is being done to keep employees and customers safe. One such solution is the use of a Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk from Tangent, which can safely take the skin temperature of both customers and employees in a contactless manner.

Keeping Safe With A Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk From Tangent

It may seem odd to think that a kiosk can help with reopening efforts. However, with a Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk from Tangent, reopening can be done safely and efficiently. Fevers are one of the common symptoms of infection, and everywhere from hospitals to schools are using some form of temperature detection in their entry-screening process.

But with hospitals and schools, typically the same amount of people arrive and leave at a preset schedule. Stores have the unique property of having constant foot traffic. Taking an individual’s temperature is a timely process, and very quickly can lead to large lines. Worse, these slow methods put your employees at risk by keeping them in close contact with potentially infectious persons.

With a Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk from Tangent, this work can be done in an automated and safe process.

Automated Skin Temperature Detection With Tangent

Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosks from Tangent work by detecting the presence of people in entry ways. Simply set a Kiosk up near a doorway, and the thermal camera will pick up anybody who passes by, whether they are a customer or employee. The thermal camera and screen will then guide the person through having their skin temperature checked in a touchless process. In as little as one second, employees and customers can have their temperature checked.

If a person’s skin temperature exceeds the limit you set, a silent or audible alarm will be triggered to alert staff. Staff can then double check the person’s internal temperature with traditional methods or simply ask the person to leave. The Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk from Tangent allows you to retake control of your business and the decisions behind it.

Reopen Confidently With Tangent

Reopening does not have to put you, your workers, or your business at-risk. Keep everyone at your store safe with a Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk from Tangent. Contact Tangent Sales today to learn more about our Skin Temperature Detecting Kiosk, and how your store can acquire one.

Keep Workers Safe With Automation

As the pandemic continues to make its ways through the country, it is more important than ever to keep your workers safe. Workers in factories, food processing plants, refrigerated facilities, and oil rigs all work together in close quarters. This means that the potential for an outbreak is real, and can have lasting effects on your workers and business. Keeping your workers safe is paramount during this time, and one of the best ways to keep them safe is to advance your facilities’ automation efforts.

Automation With Industrial Computers

Automation may seem like a sort of catch-all phrase, but it can have tangible benefits for your facility. With industrial computers, automating your facility doesn’t have to be a headache. Today’s industrial computers are fast, efficient, and easy to use. Take the Rugged Mini E3 industrial computer from Tangent for instance. With 32 gigabytes of RAM, this industrial grade computer is capable of multitasking unlike any other industrial computer. This amount of RAM allows the E3 mini industrial computer to run numerous industrial automation systems simultaneously and without delay.

With an industrial grade computer like the Rugged Mini E3, your facility can run more automated programs with less computers. This allows you to have less workers on the factory floor, and therefore create more social distancing in your facility. Workers stay safe, and the productivity of your facility skyrockets.

Create Worker “Bubbles” With Industrial Computers

With more systems automated, your workers can reorganize their efforts and consolidate tasks. This can allow you to make worker “bubbles,” wherein workers only interact with the same few workers each day. This ensures that if an outbreak does occur at your facility, that it only affects a small number of workers as opposed to all of them. This also allows workers to rethink how they do their job, and find new and creative ways to be productive.

For instance, workers can use time they would otherwise spend going around your facility on their industrial computers. By creating pockets of workers and giving them their tasks via industrial computer, their workload is always present and ready for them.

Do It All With Tangent

One of the easiest ways to keep your industrial workers safe is by keeping them distanced. With industrial computers from Tangent, this is not only achievable, but cost effective. Learn more by contacting Tangent Sales today.

How To Measure Skin Temperatures Quickly

While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to screening for symptoms of the virus during this pandemic, there are ways of performing screenings for symptomatic individuals. The NBA is strictly monitoring everyone in their bubble’s daily temperatures to ensure that any outbreak is immediately discovered. While not every store, hospital, and essential business has access to individual temperature monitoring technology for every worker and patron, there are solutions that can help these places screen for virus symptoms. With a Thermal Imaging Kiosk From Tangent, multiple people can be safely and accurately screened with a single device.

Thermal Imaging Kiosk: Safe And Effective

What is a Thermal Imaging Kiosk? A Thermal Imaging Kiosk allows hospitals, stores, and facilities to safely and accurately measure the temperature of anyone entering said place. From workers to patrons, healthcare workers to patients, a Thermal Imaging Kiosk from Tangent can take their skin temperature.

The Thermal Imaging Kiosk works by being placed in the entryway to your facility. From there, the touchless kiosk automatically scans any person in front of it for an elevated skin temperature. In under a second, the Thermal Imaging Kiosk takes the person’s skin temperature and gives the information to both the person, and whoever is tasked in your facility for monitoring the entryway.

Encourage Social Distancing With Temperature Scanner Kiosks

The Thermal Imaging Kiosk is fully touchless, and requires far less cleaning than traditional temperature scanners because of this. What’s more, one Thermal Imaging Kiosk can do the work of thousands of individual temperature tests in one day.

Temperature Scanning Made Easy

If a patron is found to have an elevated skin temperature, the Temperature Scanning Kiosk will trigger a silent or audible alarm (user preference) to alert security or staff of the posed risk. The entrant can then be taken aside for further temperature scanning or simply be asked to leave the premise. With a Temperature Scanning Kiosk from Tangent, workers no longer have to be put at constant risk by manually taking temperatures.

The biggest downside to using handheld temperature scanners is that they require medical staff to stand in close proximity to potentially infected persons. With temperature scanner kiosks, this liability is completely eliminated. Patients or medical staff entering a hospital simply have to approach the kiosk, and with touch-free voice commands have their temperature taken.
Safely And Accurately Measure Temperatures

The AI powered Temperature Scanning Kiosk from Tangent uses the latest in skin temperature thermal imaging technology to get a fast and accurate read on an entrant’s skin temperature. This makes the Temperature Scanning Kiosk the perfect first line of defense against the virus.

AI Powered Mask Detection

We have all seen videos of situations quickly escalating because staff asked a patron to wear a face covering. Even though masks should not be controversial, this is the current state of affairs. With an AI Powered Temperature Scanning Kiosk from Tangent, employees do not have to be put in these aggressive situations.

 

The AI driven Temperature Scanning Kiosk can detect if a person is wearing a mask, and inform the entrant of the mask requirement of your facility if your facility has one. This takes out the human element of this mandate, and can lead to less conflicts overall.

AI Powered, Thermal Imaging, Temperature Scanning Kiosks: Ready For You

The reality of the pandemic is that only by taking every possible precaution, can we get through this. With a Temperature Scanning Kiosk from Tangent, precautions can be taken without shifting the risks to your workers. Contact Tangent sales today for more information on our Thermal Imaging Kiosk.

Tangent can help hospitals ditch their fax machine for modern medical computers

Why Hospitals Rely On Fax Machines, And How They Can Advance With Medical Computers

If you wanted to buy something off your favorite online shop, and the only way to get your receipt was via fax, would you still buy it? Chances are you would, but forgo collecting your receipt altogether. The matter of the fact is that fax machines are (and have been) outdated for decades. But despite advances in medical grade computer technology, nearly 90% of hospitals still rely on these dinosaurs of machines to transfer patient data around the hospital. Why are fax machines still prevalent in hospitals around the country when medical grade computers are more advanced than ever? To answer this question, we will have to go back to when patient data was on paper instead of on medical grade computers.

The HITECH Act And Transition To Medical Computer Records

In 2009 amidst the previous economic recession, President Obama passed a series of legislation aimed at reinvigorating the economy. One of these acts was the HITECH Act, which among other things also set aside $30 billion for hospitals to revamp their paper medical records by digitizing them and putting them on medical grade computers. The switch from paper medical records to digital ones on medical computers proved to be a huge success, with medical computer-based patient records jumping from from 9 percent in 2008 to 83 percent in 2015 according to Vox.

The large stimulus amount in this Act is mostly responsible for this jump in medical computer-based record usage. But even though hospitals adopted the use of medical grade computers for their records, the industry that created patient record software still had some catching up to do.

There was no part in this Act that forced these software companies to work together on standardizing files. Because of this, a radiologist may want to send an X-ray over to a cardiologist in the same hospital, but have no way for the file to accurately transfer. This harkened back to the earliest days of computers, when programs and files had no standardization and often required specific software and hardware combinations to work.

Tangent can help hospitals ditch their fax machine for modern medical computers
Fax Machines Don’t Have To Be A Crucial Part Of Your Hospital

Thus, the fax machine was used to physically print off patient information from medical computers, and send copies to other departments and hospitals.

How Can Hospitals Ditch The Fax Machine?

If medical grade computers are flying cars, then fax machines are roads. While they played an important role in the transition to full medical grade computer use, they are quickly approaching their expiration date. Medical computers have long had medical software that is both safe and secure, and capable of transporting medical data.

Secure email can also play a pivotal role in transferring patient data between medical grade computers. These options also allow hospitals to save on paper and ink costs, and free up valuable realty that is taken up by bulky fax machines. However, this does not explain how hospitals can get their medical grade software to communicate with each other.

The 21st Century Cures Act requires that medical software to exchange medical data with other medical software without special effort. The exact meaning of this Act is still up for debate, but is promising in its scope. If implemented as intended, this Act would require medical software companies to play nice with each other, and finally allow that radiologist to email the cardiologist an X-Ray.

How Can Hospitals Be Ready For The Removal Of Fax Machines?

Be Ready With Medical Computers From Tangent

Fax machines have come and gone for a large part of the economy. Hospitals, being some of the last to make the transition away from the fax machine have many choices to choose from. With quality medical computer technology, hospitals can make this transition easily and securely.

Can AI On Medical Grade Computes Make Diagnosis?

Medical computers have made hospitals a safer and more effective place for hospitals to help the patients they serve. But the revolutions made by medical computers in the hospital haven’t stopped at simply replacing paper based medical records. In fact, the possibilities that medical computers bring to the hospital have only just begun.

Medical Computers And AI: Coming Soon

While medical computers are smart, they are only as smart as the software running on them. That’s what makes the possibility of an AI doctor on a medical computer so promising. While traditional medical software running on a medical grade computer requires a doctor or nurse to operate, and is mostly used for clerical duties, an AI doctor can take on some of the responsibilities normally delegated to doctors.

While this may sound like pure speculation, we are reaching the eventuality of an AI doctor on a medical grade computer every day. MIT recently discussed their machine-learning AI doctor-like structure that can aid in diagnosing patients. The AI looks at x-rays, and either clears the patient or sends off the x-ray to an actual doctor for inspection. In this way, the number of x-rays or other diagnostic tests that doctors have to sift through can be dramatically reduced. With a medical AI on a medical computer, one doctor can have the productivity of two.

Prepare For AI On Medical Computers

While the practical use of these AI doctors may be a few years out still, there is no time better to prepare for them than now. With the latest medical computer technology, your hospital can be prepared for the medical AI of tomorrow, today. With medical computers like the M24T from Tangent, doctors can make use of an advanced medical grade computer that can eventually run the future’s medical software.

While they wait, doctors can make use of the pinnacle of medical grade computer technology. The fully-sanitizable touchscreen on all of Tangent’s all-in-one medical grade computers means that doctors can use their medical computers with the same ease as their own smartphones. This ease of use also translates to their fully antimicrobial enclosures, which mitigate the spread of harmful pathogens on the medical computer’s surfaces.

Medical Computers: Medical Technology, Evolved

AI doctors are only a few years away, and preparing your hospital for the addition of these workers is a must. With medical computers from Tangent, these new doctors can find a comfortable home in your hospital.
