medical computers mobile workflow

Mobile Workflows With Medical Computers

It’s been many years since congress has mandated hospitals to begin using medical computers to keep track of medical records. The resultant electronic medical records (EMRs) softwares that have emerged have been a productivity boom for the medical industry. EMRs are a safe and quick way for doctors to record and observe their patient’s medical information from anywhere in the hospital. This mobility has made EMRs an indispensable tool in every hospital.

Other workflows in your hospital can also benefit from enhanced mobility. Medical carts specifically are already mobile, but can see an increase in their efficiency when equipped with Tangent medical computers.

Better Medical Record Updating

Nurses have been busier than ever during this pandemic, running around the hospital to perform multiple tasks. They may find themselves in situations where they need to access medical records, but are nowhere near their medical computer workstation.

With mobile carts equipped with Tangent computers, this is no longer an issue. Nurses, doctors, and medical assistants can use the barcode scanner of medical computers like the T13 from Tangent to quickly sign in on any medical device. The T13’s barcode scanner can integrate directly into your hospital’s existing workflow, allowing for medical professionals to easily access information from anywhere within the hospital.

Sanitary And Durable Medical Computers For Medical Carts

Numerous people touch a medical computer in one day. This is especially true for computers on medical carts. Tangent medical computers are designed with an antimicrobial coating. This coating mitigates the growth of harmful pathogens across the surfaces of each Tangent medical grade computer. Take the E24B for instance. The E24B comes equipped with this antimicrobial coating, and can help reduce the rates of nosocomial infections in your hospital.

The E24B also comes standard with hot-swap battery technology. This system allows you to swap out batteries for the E24B rather than having to constantly charge it. Your medical carts will no longer have to be rotated out when their batteries get low. Simply have some batteries charging while the medical cart is out, and swap when necessary.

Mobile Carts With Modular Systems

One of the top features of mobile carts is their versatility. Mobile carts can be host to numerous add-ons depending on their usage. This modularity is greatly expanded with Tangent medical computers.

Tangent medical computers can feature barcode scanners, RFID systems, and more to complement your mobile workflows. Whatever your situation demands, Tangent has a medical computer that can do the job.

Mobile workflows have seen a large increase in their efficiency in the last 20 years. But these increases don’t have to slow down. Your hospital can continue to see increases in productivity with Tangent medical computers on your mobile carts. Learn more by contacting Tangent Sales today.

Tangent medical grade tablets for vaccination stations

Better Vaccination Stations With Advanced Medical Grade Tablets

If you have tried to get a vaccine in recent days, chances are you have had to go through a patchwork system of government websites and private companies. This confusing process can show that a person is eligible for the vaccine on one website and not eligible in another. Luckily, this is about to change. The Biden administration is predicting that by April 19, all U.S. adults will be eligible for the vaccine.

Your hospital’s members have been confused for long enough. When it comes time for their vaccine appointment, make sure that the process is fully streamlined and easy for them. One of the best ways to streamline the vaccination process is with medical grade tablets.

Medical Grade Tablets For Vaccination Stations

Currently, many U.S. hospitals are relying on medical carts and other transportable medical computer stations for their vaccination clinics. While these medical carts certainly get the job done, they have some major drawbacks when it comes to facilitating vaccinations.

They may not be as portable as they seem. Vaccination clinics can see long lines at some points in the days, and virtually no one at other parts. With medical carts, there’s no flexibility in transitioning your medical staff from one area of the vaccination clinic to another.

Tangent medical tablets for vaccination stations
T-13 Medical Tablet from Tangent

That’s where medical grade tablets like the T13 from Tangent come in. The T13 is a robust medical grade computer contained in a portable, easy to use tablet. The dynamic touchscreen allows medical staff to carry the tablet with one hand and easily operate it with another. 

The T13 comes equipped with a barcode scanner. This barcode scanner can help integrate your vaccination process directly into your existing medical computer infrastructure, allowing nurses to print off vaccination record labels and quickly scan them rather than manually writing them out by hand.

What’s more, the T13 features an antimicrobial coating on its casing. This antimicrobial casing mitigates the growth of harmful pathogens on its surface, allowing your nurses to work longer in between their regularly scheduled cleaning procedures. This antimicrobial coating works in tandem with the T13 medical grade tablet’s barcode scanner to reduce the number of writing utensils that your hospital needs to constantly clean and reuse in its vaccination clinic.

Vaccinate Easier With Tangent

Tangent has remained committed to helping our essential medical heroes throughout this pandemic by providing them with the best possible medical grade computer equipment. Now that we are in the homestretch, Tangent is one again offering hospitals an easy and efficient way to help their patients. For more information, contact Tangent Sales today.

Tangent medical computers for human milk workflow

Better Human Milk Workflow With Tangent Medical Computers

It goes without saying that one of the best foods for newborn babies is their mother’s milk. Breastfeeding babies is good for both the mother and the baby itself, and can help mothers form an intimate relationship with their new progeny. But keeping newborn babies adequately fed in the neonatal intensive care unit right after birth can be a struggle. Keeping track of both mothers and newborns, having mothers produce a sustainable supply of breastmilk, and more can clog up your hospital’s human milk workflow. With Tangent’s HumanMilk workflow solution however, these problems can be a thing of the past.

Better Human Milk Workflow With Tangent Medical Computers

With Tangent, human milk workflows become a breeze. First, a mother expresses milk via a pump or whichever apparatus your hospital prefers. A nurse or medical professional will then create a barcode and affix it to the bottle. After that, the nurse places the bottle into a refrigerator for safekeeping.

These first few steps may sound familiar and are most likely already a part of your hospital’s human milk workflow. But creating and preserving human milk is only the first half of the equation. Where Tangent steps in is in the second half.

T-13 Medical Grade Tablet From Tangent
T-13 Medical Grade Tablet From Tangent

Medical grade computers like the T-13 medical tablet are designed with built-in barcode scanners. These barcode scanners allow your nurses to quickly and accurately identify and place human milk bottles with their corresponding recipient.

Nurses simply take the bottles out of the fridge and scan the barcode affixed to it. This barcode identifies both the mother and the child, as well as whether a fortifier should be added or if the bottle should be split. At this point, a new label is created and affixed. The nurse then scans the baby’s wristband and bottle to confirm a match, and then feeds the baby.

The T-13 medical tablet is easily carried, allowing nurses and medical professionals to move along their workflow with ease. An antimicrobial coating which mitigates the growth of harmful pathogens also is present on the T-13’s casing, creating a safer and cleaner working environment for your hospital’s staff.

Upgrade Your Human Milk Workflow With Tangent

Human milk workflows can be a challenge for even the best of hospitals. With The T-13 medical tablet, these workflows can become easy and safe. For more information, contact Tangent Sales today.

4 Uses For Medical Grade Computers In The Hospital

With the United States having administered over 100 million vaccines, an end to the pandemic is not only within sight but actively being approached. The response to this crisis has fallen largely on our nation’s hospitals, who have consistently provided their communities with the quality medical care they need. Hospitals need to remain vigilant during these waning days, and to that end Tangent is here to provide the equipment they need. Finding the right tool for the job can be challenging, but sometimes the right tool is a multifunctional one. Medical Computers offer hospitals a number of solutions in one package, here’s just a few of them.

Medication Witnessing

Medication witnessing is a necessary step in medicine handling that promotes safe use. But this process can be a laborious challenge, often requiring medical professionals to remember a list of complicated passwords and login credentials. Tangent medical computers like the Medix 22 offer a simple yet elegant solution with MedWitness. MedWitness allows doctors, nurses, and medical assistants to use just their badge to witness medication disposal. A multiband RFID reader allows for multiple badges to be used at once, and helps streamline your hospital’s clerical work.

Telehealth Appointments

While the pandemic may be winding down, telehealth appointments certainly are not. Almost 70% of telehealth users enjoy the service, and with a year’s worth of appointments, patients are sure to continue wanting this virtual service. Medical computers from Tangent have been built with telemedicine in mind for years. They feature high-clarity front-facing cameras and crisp microphones that help doctors develop personal relationships with their patients, despite the digital divide. 

Medical computers from Tangent also are perfect for remote monitoring situations, where patients need to routinely check in with their doctors. 

24/7 Medical Carts

Medical carts are a crucial part of the medical sphere, allowing doctors and nurses rapid access to equipment. But one of the major downsides to these carts is that they need to be charged. Rotating through entire medical carts can be costly and time consuming. Tangent has solved this issue by creating medical computers with removable, swappable batteries. This hot-swap battery technology allows medical computers like the E24B from Tangent to operate on a 24/7 basis without needing to be plugged in.

Keeping Doctors Informed

Keeping your doctors informed while in the hospital can be a challenge. Doctors still rely on pages to have vital information given to them, wherever they may be in the hospital. But these devices can lack specific details that could potentially be life saving. With medical tablets from Tangent, this is no longer the case. Medical tablets like the M8 allow doctors to receive updates like patient charts, emergency notifications, and more from anywhere in the hospital.

Medical Grade Tablets For Efficient Hospitals

The winter surge of infections is clearly coming to an end, with infections consistently trending downwards in the last few weeks. With vaccines being rolled out, and U.S. estimates suggesting that every American will be vaccinated by the summer, the end of this pandemic is within sight. However, until every American is vaccinated and variants of the virus are fully curtailed, the U.S. medical system needs to remain vigilant against the pandemic. 

Doctors and nurses need the right equipment to keep patients safe during these times. Equipment that can allow them to adapt to any circumstance or hospitalization rate in the hospital, and medical grade tablets are just that.

Medical Grade Tablets: Built For Adapting

The pandemic has proven that hospitals need to be extremely flexible, and capable of handling surges of patients previously unseen. One of the ways that hospitals have adapted is the widespread adoption of telehealth appointments on medical computers. Telehealth appointments have allowed doctors to virtually meet with their most at-risk patients without putting them in harm’s way. These appointments also save both doctors and patients time, allowing both parties more time to focus on other tasks.

Medical tablets bolster the time saving benefits offered by telehealth appointments. With medical grade tablets like the T-13 from Tangent, doctors can respond to emails, pages, and more from anywhere in the hospital. Doctors can effectively prepare themselves for telehealth appointments from their medical tablet with ease, transitioning into these appointments seamlessly with the T-13’s powerful front-facing camera.

Medical Grade Tablets: Safe And Secure

Tangent knows that patient privacy is a top priority for hospitals, and has designed their medical tablets accordingly. In addition to meeting all privacy requirements, Tangent medical grade tablets also come equipped with the Medication Witnessing technology, MedWitness. MedWitness allows medical professionals to use their medical grade tablets to witness medication usage and disposal easily and securely. MedWitness integrates directly into your hospital’s clinical workflow, and is compatible with Cerner Millennium® and integrated with Imprivata Confirm ID™.

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.

Medical Grade Computers For Emergency Care

While case numbers fall and plateau in some areas of the United States, the ongoing pandemic is still ravaging the country.

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.

The New Medix 22

With this amount of memory, the Medix 22 can run numerous medical grade software without lagging. In the emergency room, this translates to being as fast as your doctors.

Medical Grade Computers Built For ICU Use

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.

Tangent medical grade computers are the best medical computers

The M24T also comes standard with a sanitary touchscreen, allowing doctors to easily access vital signs in real time. Medical software becomes that much more intuitive through the use of this large touchscreen.

Medical Grade Computers: Safe And Sanitary

Above all, Tangent medical computers are designed to be one thing: Safe. There is no sense in bringing in equipment to the hospital that will do more harm than good. All of Tangent’s medical grade computers feature antimicrobial enclosures that mitigate the growth of bacteria on their surfaces. Their touchscreens are IP rated to be water resistant, and can be cleaned with traditional disinfectants.
