Industrial Computers For Safe Manufacturing

Infection cases are once again on the rise not just in the U.S. but across the world. With countries like France imposing lockdown restrictions once again, the question of if the U.S. will follow suit has been posed. If the U.S. does reenter a lockdown scenario, is your industrial facility prepared to have workers come in? Making sure your facility meets the highest level of safety precautions will be crucial to making workers feel at ease in their work. One of the best and easiest ways to create a safe workplace is with Tangent industrial computers.

Creating A Safe Working Environment

It’s a fact that workers perform more productively when they are less stressed. But how can industrial factories make their workers feel more comfortable in the midst of a pandemic? The answer is more simple than you might think. Ensuring that your factory has the best safety precautions available and telling your workers about this fact can help them.

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.

T-13 Medical Grade Tablet From Tangent

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 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.

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.

Tangent Oil Production

Meeting Rising Oil Demand With Industrial Computers

While times still remain uncertain, there are signs that some industrial sectors may soon stabilize. One such sector is the oil sector. While demand for oil plummeted in the early months of the pandemic, prices have seen some stabilization. Last week, according to Bloomberg, Oil futures advanced in New York, suggesting that demand may be picking up. While cases continue to climb around the world, governments may be reluctant to impose as harsh of restrictions as they did in the early days of this pandemic. This may be a sign that demand for oil will continue to improve, albeit at a slower pace than is typically expected. With this in mind, oil companies may want to once again expand their operations to accommodate an increase in demand.

Increasing Oil Production

Increasing your oil production doesn’t have to be a costly endeavor. While the market may be trending towards stabilization, it goes without saying that there will be some hiccups. To combat this, having a versatile and customizable oil production facility is key. A versatile facility will allow you to scale production up and down to meet demand, without ever having valuable equipment sit idle.

Some of the most versatile equipment that oil production plants can make use of are industrial computers. Industrial computers like the Rugged Mini E3 from Tangent are purpose built for customization. Mini industrial computers are capable of being placed in a variety of situations to perform numerous tasks.

As in-vehicle computers, Tangent’s industrial computers are perfect for keeping your industrial vehicles operating at their maximum potential. Inside facilities, these industrial grade computers can multitask with their impressive 32 gigabytes of RAM. When it comes to industrial tasks, Tangent’s industrial grade computers can do it all.

What’s more, these industrial computers are small and easy to customize. Moving them from one task to another takes virtually no time at all. With Windows 10 built in, Tangent’s industrial grade computers can run nearly every program and industrial software possible.

This allows your oil production facility to scale back production in one area, while still making use of the computing power you’ve invested in. With Tangent, a fluid allocation of resources is not only possible but within reach.

Increasing Hospital Efficiency With Medical Computers

With each passing day, the uncertainty around the pandemic continues to grow. Cases in the U.S. are rising after a brief period of falling. This new rise coincides with the start of the flu season, and this double-virus situation has the potential to strain hospital’s resources around the country. Preparing for this possibility is vital to the health of every hospital’s community. When resources are strained, time becomes one of the most important resources. Here are some ways to make your hospital more efficient, and save time in the process.

Medical Computers: Reduce Appointment Time

One of the chief consumers of your doctor’s time is appointments. Now, appointments themselves are vital to fostering and caring for your patients. But the time spent in appointments often revolves around tasks not associated with your doctor actually spending time with the patient.

With medical computers from Tangent, this can change. Medical computers from Tangent are lightning fast, allowing doctors to take care of their paperwork quickly and efficiently. What’s more, medical computers from Tangent are purpose built for telehealth. Telehealth appoints are, on average, far less time consuming than traditional appointments by not requiring patients show up in person.

Medical Computers: Ease Of Access

One of the premier features of Tangent’s lineup of medical grade computers is their sanitary touch screens. These touch screens allow doctors to directly access patient records with the same ease they have with their smartphones. Tangent’s medical computers also come equipped with front-facing cameras and optional microphones. This allows doctors to not have to work with third-party accessories while trying to focus on their patients. With Tangent medical computers, doctors have all their computing needs met in one simple all-in-one computer package.

Medical Computers: Safe And Sanitary

Now more than ever, sanitation is crucial in the hospital. Tangent knows this, and has always built our computers to do more good in the hospital than harm. Each Tangent medical grade computer comes equipped with an antimicrobial coating. This coating mitigates the growth of harmful pathogens on the surface of the medical computer.

Tangent medical computers also come with IP rated water resistant screens. This allows them to be easily and safely cleaned with traditional cleaning products. With santiziable touchscreens and antimicrobial casings, Tangent medical computers can help your hospital stay safe and sanitary.

Increase Your Hospital’s Efficiency With Tangent

Increasing the efficiency of your hospital doesn’t have to be a headache. With Tangent, saving time is as easy as calling Tangent Sales. Our sales specialists are informed on issues that hospitals have and can help find a solution that is right for you.

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.

Building Autonomous Factories For The Future

The big question on everyone’s mind is if and when AI and robots will be able to take over human workers in factories. While this question doesn’t have an easy answer, there are inklings that such a transformation is just beyond the horizon. Hotcars.com recently looked at the Changan car manufacturing facility in China, which features a 90% autonomous production line. Yes, you read that right. With 90% of the work being done to produce cars automated, the Changan factory is capable of producing 600 finished cars per day.

With the smart factory revolution well underway, facilities like the Changan car manufacturing plant are becoming less of outliers each day. Keeping up with the competition is key to staying afloat during these times. Luckily, following in the footsteps of other factories is an easy way to catch up. Here are just some of the ways that your facility can increase its autonomous production.

Building Autonomous Factories For Higher Efficiency

The more you increase your factory’s automation capacity, the higher you can expect your yields. While automation isn’t synonymous with efficiency, it can help drastically reduce labor costs across the board. This in turn, can create a profit buffer for your business.

The question then becomes, how can factories increase their automations efforts? The simplest solution is to look at what other factories are doing in their own efforts. Many facilities are taking advantage of sensor networks and the Internet of Things to increase efficiency. By tagging parts in production with RFID chips, workers can easily monitor production in real time and see if things are going wrong. This removes the worker from the factory floor, and allows them to monitor multiple systems simultaneously.

Preparing For The Future Of Automation

One way to help your facility enter the smart factory revolution is to incorporate more industrial computers into your facility. Industrial computers are computers that are custom tailored for industrial use. From small, rugged mini industrial computers that can withstand temperatures of -40° to 158°F to ones that are completely IP69K certified waterproof, there’s an industrial computer that can make your factory more efficient.

The Best In-Vehicle Industrial Computers

There is a lot going on these days, and it can be difficult to focus on the little things. But the little things can quickly build up and turn into larger, overarching challenges for your business to overcome. Keeping your facility up to date with the latest industrial computer technology is one of the best ways to keep little problems from growing into system-wide issues. One area which may be overlooked currently in your facility is the industrial computers serving as in-vehicle computers for your facility.
