With President Joe Biden having announced that the country will have enough vaccines for every American by the summer, the end of this pandemic finally appears within reach. But having enough vaccines for everyone and actually utilizing them are two different things. Already we have seen countless examples of pharmacies and hospitals being forced to waste precious vaccines as they fail to use them.
Hospitals need to prepare adequately to safely and effectively administer vaccines to the entire population, without having them go to waste. This logistical problem has proved to be a hurdle, but it is by no means impassible. Tangent is here to help hospitals with their vaccination efforts with medical computers.
Utilize Time Saving EHR Solutions
Medical computers are proving to be indispensable when it comes to vaccination efforts. But the software running on your medical grade computers is just as important. Electronic Health Record systems are crucial to determining a patient’s eligibility for vaccinations. EHR systems can help hospitals automatically alert patients to their eligibility, and can streamline the vaccination process.
Contact your EHR software vendor to see what their game plan for vaccinating is, after all there is no point in reinventing the wheel.
Create A More Efficient Sign In Process With Medical Computers
One of the potential chokepoints where vaccinations can stall is when medical professionals are required to constantly sign in and use passwords to access patient records and witness medication dosages. This process can be time consuming and laborious, but most importantly it can cost valuable time that can lead to vaccine spoilage.
With Tangent’s MedWitness sign in solution, this is no longer a problem. Doctors, nurses, and anyone administering injections can use this technology to sign into their medical grade computer using just their badge. This RFID enabled solution allows for vaccinations to happen as quickly as possible.
Keep Patients In The Loop
Above all, keeping your patients in the loop is crucial. Patients need to know when they are eligible to be vaccinated and when they can expect to receive an appointment. With Tangent Medical Computers, there are a number of ways to accomplish this. Chatbots, automated text messages, and even email solutions can help your patients feel safe and comforted by the knowledge that their hospital has a plan for them.
Be Prepared To Vaccinate With Tangent
Vaccines are becoming more accessible with each passing day. With estimates suggesting that the U.S. can reach herd immunity by the Summer, now is the time to act. Preparing your hospital for an influx of vaccinations can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. Tangent is here to help hospitals around the country meet their vaccination targets.

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.
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 Computers Make Medication Witnessing Safer
In addition to making medication witnessing easier, Tangent medical computers make the process safer. Medical computers from Tangent are UL60601-Certified for use around medical electrical equipment. In addition, medical computers from Tangent are IP rated for water resistance. This means that they can easily be cleaned with traditional cleaning products without damage.
Medical grade computers from Tangent are also equipped with antimicrobial enclosures. These enclosures can help mitigate the growth of harmful pathogens in the hospital.

During this pandemic, telehealth has seen an unprecedented rise in its use. The federal government, in collaboration with private companies, have made telehealth more accessible than ever before. But telehealth is only one half of the picture. While patients of all backgrounds can make use of telehealth to virtually see their doctors, some patients require more care than these appointments can offer. That’s where remote patient monitoring comes in. Remote patient monitoring bridges the gap between telehealth appointments and physical appointments, allowing doctors to remotely monitor the vitals of high-risk patients without needing them to go into the hospital.
Why Remote Monitoring With Medical Computers Is Important
Since the beginning of this pandemic, protecting those most susceptible to infection has been a top priority of every healthcare facility. People with disabilities, the eldery, and those with pre-existing conditions have been found to be at higher risk for severe cases. At the same time, these groups are those who rely on hospitals for routine medical care the most.
Telehealth appointments have allowed these patients to consult with their doctors. But it is remote monitoring that gives them the true care they need. Hospitals like Mount Sinai have made use of remote monitoring to measure the vital signs of patients in their own homes. This allows patients to have their vitals checked and sent to their doctor’s medical computers back at the hospital for analysis. The same tests that patients relied on pre-pandemic are then available to patients without putting them at-risk.
Will Remote Monitoring Stay After The Pandemic?
Remote monitoring will more than likely stick around long after this period has subsided. Remote monitoring has always been one of the next innovations bound to hit the medical space, and the pandemic has simply accelerated this. Mount Sinai originally started their remote monitoring efforts all the way back in 2014. With this in mind, it only makes sense for other hospitals to begin to accelerate their own remote monitoring efforts by investing in the necessary architecture.
At the backbone of this architecture is the medical computers your doctors, medical assistants, and nurses use every day. The same medical computers that they use for telehealth appointments can be used for remote monitoring data retrieval, however not every medical computer is built with these applications in mind. Medical computers from Tangent are designed with both telehealth and remote monitoring in mind. With built-in front facing cameras, microphones, and high-bit color monitors for better diagnostics, medical computers from Tangent are perfect for both telehealth and remote monitoring.
Remote Monitoring With Tangent
Tangent has built its line of medical computers for the future, and the future is telehealth and remote monitoring. Bring your hospital into the digital age with the best medical computers for the task. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information.
