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.

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.

3 Uses For Medical Computers In The Hospital

When looking for medical equipment for your hospital, it can be challenging to find the right medical computers. Some are specialized in for use in key areas, while others are too lackluster in their features. Your hospital can get best of both worlds with Tangent medical computers, designed for a wide range of uses in the hospital while staying strong in select niches.

1. EHR Software Without The Hassle

A study by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health and Information Technology recently found that 96 percent of U.S. hospitals use certified EHR technology. It is apparent that EHRs have become the goto way to handle medical records. But EHR software is only as good as the machine it’s running on.

Some medical computers are designed without EHR software in mind. This can lead to slow load times. Medical computers like the M24T from Tangent are built with medical software in mind.

Tangent medical grade computers are the best medical computers
M24T Medical Computer

The M24T is fully capable of handling all certified EHR technology thanks to its 32 GB of RAM. With this amount of RAM, the M24T can run numerous programs simultaneously without slowing down. This medical computer also features NVME storage, which can perform up to 32 times faster than traditional spinning hard disk storage.

2. 24/7 Medical Cart Operation

Medical carts are an indispensable tool in every hospital. But these carts have one major drawback: having to charge. Hospitals can only keep so many of their medical carts in service, reducing their potential.

Tangent E24B Medical Computer
Tangent E24B Medical Computer

With medical computers from Tangent, this is no longer a problem. Medical computers like the E24B feature hot-swap battery technology. The medical computer can run on a 24/7 basis without being plugged in. Simply swap out batteries and charge them with the charging dock.

3. Telemedicine 

The pandemic has shown the importance of telemedicine. Patients have grown accustomed to the service for routine visits, and it likely isn’t going away after the pandemic subsides. Medical computers from Tangent have long since been designed with telemedicine applications in mind. Their built-in cameras and microphones allow doctors to quickly and easily get the face-to-face time they need with their patients.

Building A Better Hospital

Hospitals have adapted in numerous ways throughout this pandemic, in no small part due to their resourcefulness. When doctors need to be flexible, their equipment should be equally as flexible. Tour hospital’s medical computers can be customized for any requirement with Tangent. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information. 

Tangent human milk workflow medical computer

Human Milk Management Medical Computers

Hospitals have learned how to adapt to this pandemic. They have implemented many procedures and upped their sanitization efforts. Vaccination efforts are quickly expanding across the country, and the end of the pandemic is within sight. However, hospitals should not simply return to normal procedures. The same sanitation and safety efforts brought on by the pandemic should be expanded to the entire hospital.

Your hospital’s human milk workflow is one area that may be in need of this expanded care. Human milk management can be a struggle, but it doesn’t have to be.

Better Human Milk Management

Optimizing your human milk workflow can be a breeze with Tangent’s medical grade T13 Tablet. The T13 is a full medical computer in a small, portable package. The T13 features windows 10 and can run all the same medical software as traditional medical computers. What sets the T13 apart for human milk workflows is its unique design and barcode scanner. 

Medix T13

The T13 is designed rugged in anticipation of everything a hospital can throw at it. This medical grade tablet has been drop tested to ensure its viability after a fall — no need to buy a case. A large carry strap is built into the medical tablet, allowing for easy mobility as nurses move from bedside to nursing stations to bottle prep rooms.

With its barcode scanner, the T13 allows nurses to easily handle expressed milk. Simply print labels, affix them to the bottle, and have the T13 medical tablet take care of the rest. The T13 allows nurses to routinely and easily catalogue every milk bottle along its journey to the NICU. 

The T13 is fully validated with Cerner Breast Milk Solution and Workflow, allowing for quick and easy integration into Cerner systems. Together with Cerner, the T13 medical tablet is the ideal way to keep track of human milk across the maternity ward and NICU.

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

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.

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.

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.
