Rugged medical tablets and medical-grade all-in-one computers make it easy for healthcare professionals to do their job efficiently whether they are in a room taking care of a patient or practicing medicine virtually. There are many benefits and reasons why healthcare facilities around the world are investing in this technology now. In this blog, we outline several of the benefits of choosing an all-in-one medical-cart computer or medical tablet for medical teams and practices.
The DT Research Rugged Medical Tablets offer health professionals effective tools to monitor, record, and retrieve patient information. Featuring the integration of high performance, energy-efficient Intel® processors within slim, lightweight, durable packages. Both the medical tablets and medical cart computers provide space-saving solutions for health professionals to monitor, record, and retrieve patient information as well as other point-of-care applications. The built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection also make data access efficient and optimizes staff workflow.
5 Reasons Why Medical Tablets and All-In-One Medical-Cart Computers are the Answer for Healthcare:
Brilliant capacitive touch screens: When treating patients, vivid high-bright and high contrast capacitive screens are crucial for viewing the patient during a virtual consultation. Should they need to see a wound, an injury, or diagnose a visible health concern for the patient, the large screen with backlit functionality allows them to easily see and treat the patient while increasing or decreasing the display brightness to better see the intricacies of the patient’s issue.
Built-in front and back cameras: Cameras are the key to practicing virtual healthcare. Medical rugged tablets have front and back cameras built into the tablet to make it easy for medical professionals to virtually connect with their patients and document health issues for consults and examinations. Conferencing enables patients to visit their doctor without needing to travel. This built-in feature also increases the reliability of the tablet, as there are no third-party attachments that can easily be broken or knocked off while in use. This increases the lifespan and usability of the purpose-built tablet.
Integrated smart card readers: Medical tablets with smart card readers are crucial for patient safety, network access, and retrieval of data. Smart card readers give access to medical personnel who have been granted specific permissions within a network. Allowing healthcare professionals to easily retrieve the exact patient data they are allowed to access when needed ensures patient privacy.
Mountable flexibility: Medical tablets can move easily from room to room to treat patients whether mounted on a slim cart or hand-carried. Medical-cart computers and medical tablets are VESA mountable so they can be attached to any VESA arm, wall mount, or cart. With hot-swappable batteries, there is no need for a heavy, expensive cart battery, so the carts can be smaller and lighter making them easier to maneuver and don’t require charging space. Medical tablets can be quickly removed from the cart and carried to wherever they need to go.
UL60601-1 certified with anti-microbial enclosure: Infection control prevention is key in any medical facility. Medical tablets and all-in-one medical-cart computers are enclosed with an anti-microbial coating that reduces the spread of bacteria and viruses within the environment. Having this feature built into the computer reduces the risk of spreading bacteria from surfaces or hands and minimizes the need to constantly wipe down when in use. The fanless design also minimizes the spread of dust and bacteria from circulating, a key component for healthcare and clean-sensitive environments.
The use of medical tablets and all-in-one medical-cart computers reduces the risk of spreading infections while improving process flow and patient care within the healthcare industry. Investing in technology that advances patient care, is an investment that will give back year after year, reducing costs long-term.
