3 Ways Remote Monitoring Can Help Your Hospital

As new case numbers continue to set records daily, hospitals must rethink the ways in which they see patients. Telehealth has been an indispensable tool during this pandemic to keep both doctors and patients safe, but it is only one part of the solution. With the addition of remote monitoring on medical grade computers, hospitals can safely and accurately keep track of their most at risk patients without putting them in harm’s way. Here are three ways in which remote monitoring can help your hospital.

Remote Monitoring: Keep Beds Open

Keeping hospital beds open is crucial to the success of pandemic mitigation efforts. Every bed must be available to those who need it, and already we are seeing ICUs around the country reach capacity. Remote monitoring on medical grade computers allows for more beds to be available for pandemic use. Patients who would otherwise require constant in-hospital monitoring can be sent home while still having their vitals monitored. In this way, hospital beds remain open and at risk patients still have the care they need.

Remote Monitoring: Keep At Risk Patients Safe

The CDC has stated that there are many ways for a person to be at high risk for becoming infected during this pandemic. Patients with underlying medical conditions such as diabetes are more susceptible to the harsher symptoms of the virus. However, these same patients are the ones who need to be going into hospitals for regular checkups. With remote monitoring on medical grade computers, patients can have their vitals monitored while avoiding hospitals altogether.

Remote Monitoring: Makes Use Of Antimicrobial Computers.

While not every medical grade computer is an antimicrobial computer, every Tangent medical grade computer is. Tangent’s lineup of medical grade computers comes with an antimicrobial enclosure and fully sanitizable touchscreen. Doctors using these medical grade computers can feel at ease knowing that their computer mitigates the growth of harmful pathogens on its surface. With medical grade computers from Tangent, remote monitoring helps not just your at risk patients, but also your doctors stay healthy.

Each industrial computer is designed to handle situations that a commercial computer simply could not. Take the Rugged Mini E3 by Tangent for instance. With a rugged, shock and vibration rated chassis, the Rugged Mini E3 industrial computer is capable of being used in nearly every industrial setting. In manufacturing, this industrial grade computer's extreme temperature operating range from -13°F to as hot as 158°F means that it can handle nearly every environment. With an advanced, fanless cooling system, the Rugged Mini E3 is able to operate on a 24/7 basis without needing to be dusted constantly.

Industrial Grade Computers Versus Commercial Computers

While it may be tempting to think that all computers are created equal, this simply is not the case. Every computer is built for a specific purpose whether or not it is labeled as such. Industrial grade computers are computers that are designed for industrial applications like manufacturing and oil processing. Industrial grade computers differ from commercial computers in a number of ways that make them more versatile and well suited for industrial use.

Industrial Computer Applications

The biggest difference between an industrial computer and a commercial computer is in their applications. A commercial computer is generally designed for use in an office setting. This allows for commercial computers to be built less ruggedly than industrial grade computers. Commercial computers also have the benefit of working in air conditioned spaces, meaning that they do not have to use advanced cooling systems. Commercial computers also do not have to operate on a 24/7 basis, meaning that they can be built to consume more power.

With an advanced, fanless cooling system, the Rugged Mini E3 is able to operate on a 24/7 basis without needing to be dusted constantly.

Longer Lifetime In Harsher Environments

Because commercial computers are used in the same environments as people, they are able to be built with less stringent guidelines than industrial grade computers. While this may be fine for use in the office, this simply would not do on an oil drilling platform off the coast. Industrial grade computers are built rugged, smart, and to last. With industrial grade computers like the Rugged Mini O from Tangent, there is virtually no worrying about if your computer system will hold up.

The Rugged Mini O industrial computer is built to the toughest specifications possible. With an IP69K fully waterproof enclosure, this industrial grade computer can be used virtually anywhere. A solid state drive allows the Rugged Mini O to operate in areas where vibration and shock would render lesser computers worthless.

Versatile And Customizable

Tangent’s entire lineup of rugged industrial grade computers has the ability to help your industrial facility run longer and more productively. With industrial computers as small as a book to ones as powerful as industrial workstations, there’s an industrial grade computer that will fit your need perfectly.
