Creating Smart Factories With Industrial Computers

It may seem like everyday, a news outlet discusses the impending smart factory revolution. While this phrase may seem like a buzzword, the smart factory revolution has been underway for some time. Most recently, Alibaba has gotten in on the trend and has begun looking at how they can revolutionize chinese facilities.

It’s no secret that chinese manufacturers have, for some time now, outpaced and outnumbered American manufacturers. But now, with smart factories becoming the norm this outpacing could accelerate. In order to stay competitive, U.S. manufacturers will need to join in on the smart factory revolution. Luckily, Tangent and their lineup of industrial grade computers are here to help.

With 24/7 U.S. based support included, the Rugged Mini O is one industrial computer that won’t quit today, tomorrow, or any time soon.

Tangent: Prepared For What’s Next

Of course, it wouldn’t matter that Tangent’s industrial computers can last multiple years unless they had components that are futureproofed for that long. Tangent has, of course, designed their industrial computers with futureproofing in mind. Each industrial computer comes with some of the latest Intel processors, a hefty amount of RAM, and customization options like optional SSD storage. With these computer components, Tangent industrial computers can stay relevant on your production line far longer than other industrial computers could.

Medical Computers For Emergency Use

As flu season approaches, crafting your hospital’s plan to deal with a potential influx of patients will be crucial to the wellbeing of your community. The combination of the ongoing pandemic and the encroaching flu season, as well as a swelling fire season in the west may combine to cause an uneasy strain on your hospital. Preparing for an emergency is not enough anymore. Hospitals must prepare for multiple emergencies at once, and Tangent is here to help. With Tangent medical computers, hospital resources can be effectively used.

Medical Computers For Field Emergencies

Emergencies can take on many forms, but those in the field are particularly hard on logistics. Organizing life-saving efforts with first responders is already a challenging task, but under the current circumstances it is increasingly difficult. As emergency rooms fill up, hospitals have had to turn away ambulances due to constraints on capacity. What can be done?

Ambulances would not have to be turned away from hospitals if they had an effective system of cataloging events. While this may seem challenging, this can easily be accomplished with medical grade computer tablets from Tangent. Medical computer tablets like the T-13 from Tangent are perfect for first responders, being small and sleek enough to carry while on the go.

First responders can use these tablets to communicate with local hospitals and organize where their patients should go ahead of time.

Medical Computers For The Emergency Room

Of course, quality patient care doesn’t stop when patients arrive at the hospital. Rather, this is where it really begins. As emergency rooms become more impacted, effectively organizing the order of care that patients receive will be vital to everyone’s health.

Tangent's Medical Computers Are There When You Need Them

Tangent’s lineup of medical grade computers are built to be the fastest available, and can help speed up these clerical tasks. Medical computers by tangent are built with fully-sanitizable touchscreens. These touch screens can be used to rapidly input patient data without the use of a mouse or keyboard. With full antimicrobial coatings, Tangent’s medical computers are an all-in-one solution to medical data entry that is both HIPAA certified and pathogen mitigating.

Medical Computers For The Intensive Care Unit

Where medical computers from Tangent can be of most use is in the intensive care unit. ICUs can quickly reach capacity as we have seen during the pandemic. To combat this, careful observation and analysis of patients can help alleviate some of the burden on your ICU. Medical computers can help doctors take detailed notes on a patient’s health during their stay in the ICU. This data can then be later compared to others who may need to enter the ICU, and decisions can be fairly made. With medical computers, this data can be easily recorded in multiple formats, as well as shared and accessed easily from anywhere in the hospital.

Be Prepared With Tangent

These are unpredictable times, but they don’t have to be uncertain ones. Tangent can help take over some of the logistics of the pandemic, and leave your doctors free to do their real job: keeping patients safe and healthy. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information.

Are Pandemic Waivers For Telehealth Still In Effect?

Near the beginning of this pandemic, bold actions by the federal government, health insurance companies, and hospitals led to loosening restrictions and greater access to telehealth services. What transpired was a new telehealth ecosystem that saw dramatic increases in the use of medical computers by doctors to have virtual appointments with patients. The rise in telehealth use coincided with a rise in patients satisfaction with the service, which helped keeped at-risk patients from having to enter hospitals. Now, some of these pandemic related waivers have ceased. Here’s what’s recently changed:

Non-Pandemic Related Telehealth Appointments No Longer Covered

Health insurance companies like Anthem and UnitedHealthcare helped their customers during the early days of the pandemic by agreeing to reduce the cost to patients of telehealth appointments. This allowed patients with chronic illnesses that could put them at higher risk for transmission in the hospital setting to simply not go into hospitals. Remote monitoring systems also aided patients by allowing them to remotely monitor levels like blood sugar for their doctors to go over in telemedicine appointments.

Now, these cost reductions are over. Patients who use telehealth appointments for non-pandemic related illnesses will have to start paying their co-payments and deductibles once more. Make sure that your hospital’s patients know about this change well in advance of their next telehealth appointment.

Can Hospitals Still Use Telemedicine?

The short answer is: yes! Hospitals are still cleared to use medical computers for telemedicine appointments. Virtual appointments still have their place in the current moment as a third wave of the pandemic appears on the horizon.

However, with patients once again incurring costs associated with patients, some at-risk patients may be reluctant to schedule appointments. It’s important to consider the financial situation of patients during this time, especially considering those with chronic ailments are more likely to be negatively impacted by the pandemic.

Whenever possible, try to reduce the costs for these patients or bring the cost inline with other, traditional appointments.

Telehealth In The Hospital

While using telehealth on medical grade computers in the hospital has gotten a bit more complicated, it still provides an essential service to both doctors and hospitals. Mounting public pressure may change the course of health insurance companies to reinstate their waivers. But even if the waivers are not reinstated, telehealth can still be used by hospitals and patients to help keep everyone in the community safe.

Be Safe With Tangent

Telehealth, in some form or another, will continue to be of use in the medical field. A pandora’s box has been opened, and closing it simply isn’t practical. Patients are finding that telehealth appointments are easier than in-person visits and enjoy the experience. You can help make these virtual visits even more enjoyable to your patients by employing the use of Tangent’s Medical Computers for telehealth. Learn more by contacting Tangent Sales Today.

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.

Create A Healthy Hospital With Tangent

It’s not easy to maintain a safe indoors environment, but there are ways to help this upkeep. Telemedicine appointments help lessen the amount of people physically present in the hospital, aiding social distancing efforts and relieving stress for many. In addition, telemedicine through antimicrobial medical computers can help reduce the risk of contact-based transmission.

Your doctors need tools that they can not only rely on, but ones they can trust to do more good than harm. With Tangent medical grade computers, doctors can perform their vital work without worry. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information on telemedicine and medical computers.

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.

Tangent brings you the latest in thermal camera technology with our skin temperature detecting kiosk.

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.
