medical computers for medication witnessing wp

Witnessing Medication Administration Made Easy With Medical Computers

Providing safe and accurate prescriptions to patients can be a complex, and potentially risky endeavor. That’s why medication witnessing is crucial in the hospital setting. With medication witnessing, hospitals can be certain that medication is being used properly throughout the hospital. But oftentimes the process of medication witnessing is a laborious, clunky task. With Tangent medical computers, medication witnessing can be done quickly and safely, improving your hospital’s workflow.

Medication Witnessing With Medical Computers

Medication witnessing can be a pain for doctors and nurses to accomplish. Depending on where they are in the hospital, the process can involve multiple steps and require the witnessing RN to memorize a confusing ID number, user name, and password. Memorizing and recalling these inputs can take a considerable amount of time that the witnessing physician can use in other areas of the hospital.

Tangent M24T Medical Computer

With medical computers like the M24T from Tangent, this process is completely streamlined. The inputs required to witness medication changes can be safely and conveniently stored on your RN’s badge. This allows your doctors and nurses to have longer, safer passwords without the hassle of having to remember them; bad password habits become a thing of the past.

Tangent medical grade computers are equipped with SSO RFID, combined with Cerner Millennium and integrated with Imprivata Confirm ID. With these implementations, Tangent medical grade computers are perfect for easy and secure medication witnessing. Tangent computers and tablets have been tested and approved by Cerner, and can be trusted to help aid your medication witnessing efforts.

Are Medical AI Tools Worth Using In Hospitals?

Medical AI Tools are rapidly becoming mainstream features in hospitals, especially during this pandemic. These tools can help doctors make diagnosis, or simply advise them on treatment plans. Recently, the Health and Human Services Secretary, Alex Azar, proposed permanently ending FDA oversight on certain medical AI tools. Azar is recommending the end to this oversight in part because there are few complaints against Medical AI Tools. But is this truly the case?

Medical AI Tools During The Pandemic

Like many procedures, FDA oversight has looked very different during the pandemic. Many medical products and tools that regularly receive oversight have been granted emergency approval, including PPE and Medical AI Tools.

But due to the nature of using Medical AI Tools, the lack of complaints against them should not be taken at face value. Doctors will use Medical AI Tools to help guide them to making a diagnosis, and thus patients will only hear from their doctors about their diagnosis. There is rarely time where a patient will directly know about, or form opinions on Medical AI Tools.

Should Hospitals Use Medical AI Tools If They Do Not Have Oversight?

The question of whether or not certain Medical AI Tools will receive oversight is still up in the air. Ultimately, the decision will fall upon the incoming Biden Administration, who will have the final say. Currently, the proposal includes 91 products, including PPE, that can potentially receive exemption from oversight.

With Medical AI Tools, oversight may be something that hospitals would want to see remain the standard. Medical AI Tools have been found to cause hospitals to become worse at detecting illnesses like breast cancer. Research has found that some breast imaging software has not improved certain hospitals’s ability to detect breast cancer.

However, it’s worth noting that this particular software came out in 1998. Medical AI Tools, and AI in general, are becoming more advanced with each passing day. With this in mind, alleviating pressure on certain Medical AI Tools to be constantly overseen may help bolster medical innovation.

In either case, Medical AI Tools have found themselves to be indispensable in the hospital, and during this pandemic. The FDA has previously admitted Medical AI Tools emergency-use status for the pandemic, showing how critical these tools have become. With or without oversight, Medical AI Tools will continue to be used in the hospital, and your hospital should be ready.

Medical Grade Computers Built For Emergency Room Use

Heading into the fall and winter this year may look a bit different than in the past. The combination of the annual flu season and the possibility of a second wave during this pandemic has led to fears of medical shortcomings. From a lack of testing to limited Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity, there are areas where hospitals should be concerned. Making sure that your hospital can handle an increase in hospitalizations may be crucial to the wellbeing of the community at large during this flu season. To that end, Tangent is here with customizable and sanitary solutions for your hospital to stay operable during this period.

Medical Grade Computers Built For Emergency Room Use

Not every computer is built equally, and nowhere else is this as clearly seen as it is in the emergency room. In the emergency room, time is of the essence. Making sure that your medical grade computers not only work, but work fast is critical to the health of every patient that comes in. Tangent knows this, and has built medical computers like the Medix 22 with the needs of the emergency room in mind.

While the needs of the ICU are similar to that of the emergency room, there is a higher emphasis on monitoring vital signs. The Medix M24T not only works as a medical computer, but as a monitor as well. With a large, 24 inch monitor capable of displaying multiple readouts at once, the M24T medical computer is perfect for the ICU.

Unleash Your Hospital's Potential With Medical Grade Computers From Tangent

Is An All Digital, Medical Computer-Based Hospital Possible?

During this pandemic, hospitals are seeing an unprecedented level of new technology being deployed. Thanks to loosening government regulations and private sector support, telehealth and telemedicine have been implemented in hospitals across the United States. But this begs the question, is a fully digital, medical computer-based hospital possible?

Increasing Hospital Efficiency With Medical Computers

In 2016, Modern Healthcare toured a digital hospital. What they found was a hospital in which medical computers and other technologies had transformed the way that healthcare was delivered. This efficient approach to healthcare allowed doctors and nurses more time with patients and helped automate the bulk of the hospital’s backend work.

Digitize Your Hospital With Medical Grade Computers From Tangent

While this hospital was built from the ground up to be a digital hospital, today’s hospitals can adopt some of these measures to see their efficiency increase. Medical computers have already proved their worth to hospitals with telehealth and telemedicine, but these medical computers can also play a role in helping your hospital’s digital capabilities.

Medical Grade Computers: Keep Doctors Informed

One of the major benefits of a fully digital hospital is the excision of old, inefficient methods of healthcare. Medical computers like medical grade tablets can help doctors eliminate the need for pagers. Instead, doctors can have their own medical grade computer on them at all times. With full medical grade computer capabilities, medical grade tablets can allow doctors to review medical records, respond to emails, and more while on the move throughout the hospital.

What’s more, medical grade tablets allow doctors all the capabilities of pagers in the same device as their professional materials. This two-in-one allows doctors to have the full use of a medical grade computer and work phone in one.

Expand Telehealth Capabilities With Medical Computers

Telehealth has already seen a massive increase in use during this pandemic. But as patients become more accustomed to this level of care, it may be hard to convince them to come back to the hospital. To this end, working on your hospital’s website may help patients in the transition to more online-oriented care.

With an updated website and patient portal, patients can connect with their doctors more easily. Instead of setting up an entire appointment, patients can send their doctors a short message on the patient portal. Doctors can then see this message on their medical computer or medical grade tablet, and respond accordingly. This can save both time and appointment capacities at your hospital.

Medical Grade Computers and Tablets: The Way Forward

The transformation of hospitals in the digital age is happening, and medical grade computers and medical grade tablets will play a crucial role in the hospital of tomorrow. Keep your hospital up to date with the latest in medical technology from Tangent.

Tangent Cyber Security

How Can Hospitals Combat Hackers During This Pandemic?

Each and every day, hackers try their best to take down cybersecurity systems around the world, and those of hospitals are no exception. The New York Times has reported that Russian hackers have attempted to steal information on possible vaccines from the U.S. last week. In addition, over 140 high profile figures had their twitter accounts hacked last week in a devastating cyber attack. This only goes to show that even during a pandemic, cyber security must remain a top priority. Maintaining your hospital’s cybersecurity is crucial, here are three ways to help keep your hospital safe.

Choose The Right Medical Computers

Not every medical computer is created equal, and it shows when it comes to cyber security. Having secure medical computers is crucial for hospitals to thwart hacking and ransomware attempts, and there are no better medical computers for the job than those from Tangent. Medical grade computers from Tangent are built with your hospital’s safety in mind, both in the medical and cyber sense.

Medical grade computers like the M24T from Tangent come equipped with TPM 2.0 for maximum cybersecurity. This module ensures that the computer boots up and functions as it should, helping prevent costly breakdowns.  In addition, this module can prevent dictionary cyberattacks a method used by hackers to figure out passwords from occurring on your medical grade computers.

Keep Your Medical Grade Computers Updated

The longer a piece of software sits without being updated, the more time potential hackers have to crack it. When you update software on your medical computer, you’re not just receiving the latest additions. These updates make it harder for hackers to break into the software, as they now have to start from scratch in finding a vulnerability. Keeping your medical computers updated is the easiest way to help ward off potential cyber criminals.

Keep Your Doctors And Nurses Informed

Your medical computers are only as smart as the medical staff using them. It is important to train your staff not only how to use their medical grade computer, but also how to recognize suspicious activity. While this pandemic has strained hospital resources, it is this same strain that can make employees more susceptible to falling for cyber tricks like phishing scams. Make sure that your medical staff stay vigilant about such attempts.

Stay Safe With Tangent

Tangent medical computers are designed with antimicrobial enclosures and TPM modules to keep your hospital safe from physical and digital pathogens. Keep your hospital running inside and out with medical grade computers from Tangent.

Tangent medical computers remote monitoring

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.

Remote Monitoring On Medical Grade Computers: Help Your Hospital Today

Medical grade computers are perfect for both telehealth and remote monitoring. During this pandemic, both of these tools have become widely available under new government regulations for hospital use.

What Is Remote Monitoring On Medical Computers?

There is a lot of talk about telehealth these days, and while it has been a vital tool during this pandemic, there have been other medical computer-based solutions that have been overlooked. One such solution is remote monitoring via medical computers, which can help hospitals continue to treat patients without putting them in harm’s way.

What Is Remote Monitoring On Medical Computers?

Simply put, remote monitoring takes the idea of telehealth to its logical endpoint. While telehealth is used primarily for appointments such as primary care visits, remote monitoring allows doctors to monitor the vitals of patients from their own home. This allows doctors access to the vital patient information they need to make healthcare decisions without putting either the doctor or patient at risk.

The same temporary rules that have made telehealth more accessible during the pandemic have also made remote monitoring more feasible. Now any hospital using medical grade computers can easily set up remote monitoring.

Remote Monitoring In The Home

Right now, high-risk patients have enough on their plate. Asking them to put their health on the line to come into the hospital might be a big ask. But the regular trips that these patients make to the hospital are also necessary for doctors to determine the next step of their care plan. Remote monitoring allows for doctors to get the information they need, and for patients to be out of harm’s way.

Major players in the healthcare industry, both private and public, are preparing for telehealth. Telehealth with medical computers has proven to be an effective way of social distancing, and could potentially save lives. Make sure that your hospital takes advantage of all the programs available, and implements this crucial technology.
Remote Monitoring On Tangent Medical Computers Is Easier Than Ever

Wearable sensors, self administered tests, implanted sensors, and more are now available for patients at home. The information these devices collect can be transmitted directly to their doctor’s medical grade computer. In essence, remote monitoring allows for pre-pandemic levels of patient care via medical grade computers.

Remote Monitoring In The Hospital

The obvious benefit to remote monitoring is that doctors can once again get the information they need to make informed decisions. But there are other benefits to hospitals in general. High-risk patients such as those with heart failure can be safely monitored at their home, allowing for more ICU beds to be available in this crisis.

Furthermore, remote monitoring can be used inside the hospital to keep track of infected patients on medical grade computers without putting medical staff at risk. Remote monitoring can even lead to faster response times.

Setup Remote Monitoring With Tangent Today

Remote monitoring can be a crucial part of your hospital’s pandemic preparedness plan. With Tangent’s medical grade computers, your doctors can safely and securely access patient information on fully sanitizable and antimicrobial medical computers and medical grade tablets. Contact a Tangent medical grade computer expert today to learn more.

Is Virtual Primary Care Possible With Telehealth On Medical Computers?

As we march through this pandemic, the ways in which we live our daily lives have changed drastically. One of these ways is the adoption of telehealth technology for non-essential primary-care visits. In March alone, telehealth visits were up 4346.94% compared to March 2019. The quickly expanding scale of telehealth on medical computers is astonishing, but can it keep up?

While telehealth on medical computers has seen a drastic rise in use since the beginning of the pandemic, it has only done so due to an all-hands-on-deck effort by the federal government, insurance companies, and local hospitals. Will these support systems remain after this pandemic has been curbed?

Major players in the healthcare industry, both private and public, are preparing for telehealth. Telehealth with medical computers has proven to be an effective way of social distancing, and could potentially save lives. Make sure that your hospital takes advantage of all the programs available, and implements this crucial technology.
Telemedicine Is Easier Than Ever, But Can It Keep Up?

Nothing is concrete as of yet, however there are promising signs that show that telehealth on medical computers is here to stay. For one, reopenings around the country are being put on pause as case numbers increase. This will inevitably require telehealth to be in use longer, and for it to become more normalized.

Patients are already seeing the benefits of using telehealth on medical computers versus going to the hospital in person, and it is unlikely this pandora’s box will be able to be closed. Given that patients are enjoying telehealth visits, this cultural shift may necessitate permanent changes that allow for broader telehealth use.

A new upcoming Medicare payment rule includes a plan to permanently expand reimbursement for telehealth services. This would allow the medical computer based system to stay long after the pandemic, as patients would have the costs of these appointments partially covered. However, other branches of government would have to get onboard to make the temporary changes elsewhere permanent.

Telehealth is a way for doctors to communicate with patients without being in the same room as them. Utilizing medical grade computers, doctors are able to meet virtually with patients in a similar way to how over-the-phone appointments work. However, the use of medical grade computers makes telehealth a far superior option to over-the-phone appointments.
Telehealth Has Become Ingrained In Healthcare

Not only do patients and the government want telehealth on medical computers to be a permanent option for hospital visits, but it may soon be necessary. The country is soon to face a shortage of primary-care physicians. We could be lacking as many as 122,000 physicians by 2032.

Telehealth on medical computers offers a promising solution, allowing doctors to see more patients remotely than they would in person. Telehealth appointments could potentially solve this shortage, and keep our medical system running smoothly.

The sudden increase of telehealth use has had a lasting impact on the way we view medical appointments. With all signs pointing to telehealth on medical computers being normalized, it is looking more likely that virtual primary care via telehealth is around the corner.
