According to recent findings, more than 60% of doctors and healthcare professionals across U.S. have abandoned the good-old clipboard, and switched to a more modern tool that is portable, durable and way more powerful – the medical tablet.
Adapting a medical grade tablet carries a number of advantages for patients and healthcare professionals alike. The volume of paper work inherent to routine operations carried out in medical settings – be it a public hospital, a private clinic or an emergency relief camp – is simply overwhelming. Migrating to the medical tablet does away with not only the pesky paperwork but also the intricate manual procedures in the workflow, increasing the overall process efficiency manifold.
Deploying tablets also circumvents the utterly burdensome human data entry process, eliminating any and all human-introduced errors that are a commonplace occurrence when importing information from distributed patient care systems. Using the tablets also ensures round-the-clock, on-demand access to patient records including diagnosis details, pathological outcomes, financial summaries, prescription particulars and legal information. The medical tablet is also useful for appointment scheduling encompassing medic visits, sample collection reminders, and checkup arrangements.
What renders a medical grade tablet distinct is the ability to seamlessly carry out patient monitoring and multi-level sensory data acquisition – including input from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled healthcare devices and medical instrumentation systems.
The multimedia capabilities boasted by such tablets allow for seamless text, video, image and speech processing. Additionally, the tablets specialize in unified provision of healthcare information such as critical visuals, disease progression and unusual auditory activity to medical personnel. By the use of third party applications, the same data can be synced across the cloud for advanced analytics and warehousing. The communication capabilities permit the doctors and medical staff to stay up to date with the proceedings at the healthcare facility remotely.
Medical grade tablets, unlike their regular counter-parts, warrant a certain level of security, performance, reliability and most importantly – cleanliness. As per directions from the Centre of Disease Control and Prevention, medical devices in near-patient environment must be readily cleansable to minimize contamination and infection risks. Electronic systems, including tablets, are expected to meet the same sanitization guidelines. The equipment disinfection process is to be carried out using a certified cleansing solution, making contact of the electronic device with the liquid inevitable. A tablet used in medical setting thus needs to be fortified with liquid resistant capabilities to ensure the removal of blood, body fluids, microbial organisms, routine dust and dirt.
The need for mobility associated with routine operation of any equipment healthcare setting imposes yet another crucial design requirement – portability and superior ergonomics. A functional portable computing unit is expected to be light weight so that it is carried around by the medics throughout the day (and night) with little muscular strain. The tablet is also designed to withstand ingress by liquid and dust particles.
Cybernet's medical tablet product line-up conforms to the EN60601-1 standard, the internationally accredited certification for electronic medical equipment. The product-mix also boasts an IP-65 front bezel and an IPX1 back cover. Cybernet's medical grade tablets are fortified with antimicrobial coating on top of a rigid aluminum housing. The unique fanless design reduces not only the electrical and audible noise but minimizes dispersal of unsterile matter to a considerable extent as well. High-performance batteries on-board the medical tablets ensure uninterrupted operations extended over longer period of time. State-of-the-art ergonomics and cutting-edge processing prowess are the core factors that differentiate Cybernet from the competitors.
Tablets with barcode scanners have become ubiquitous in the healthcare industry. They are used for a wide variety of purposes.
Barcoding medication can ensure that the medication that a patient receives is correct. According to the National Institute of Health, "51% of the harm that occurs in the hospital occurs at the point of care." By using tablets with barcode scanners throughout the stay of the patient, medication errors can be almost eliminated. This reduces the potential for drug interactions, prescribing drugs to which the patient is allergic or the mix-up of medications.
By tracking medication throughout the entire process of receiving and distributing medication, pharmacies significantly reduce the potential for error. The FDA has ruled that certain medications must be barcoded. The barcode includes the NDC (National Drug Code), the name of the medication, dosage requirements and the name of the drug company. Using a medical grade tablet with a barcode scanner facilitates the process.
Medical tablets with barcode scanners are ideal for use in blood banks or in blood collection within hospitals or other healthcare settings. Errors in identification can lead to misdiagnosis of the wrong patient so using a medical tablet with a barcode scanner is a critical step in patient care. This is true for all types of specimen collection including urine & stool samples.
Barcode scanners can also be used to track a patient's stay at a medical facility and collect data. From the time that the patient is introduced to the medical system, the patient's care, drugs prescribed, blood draws, x-rays taken, billing, etc., can be tracked via tablets with barcode scanners.
By barcoding medical supplies and instruments and using the barcode scanners in medical grade tablets for tracking, hospitals can ensure that physicians have the tools they require and the hospital doesn't order kits that won't be used. This improves efficiency and lowers costs. Each doctor has his/her preferences as to instruments and surgical kits. By using barcode scanners, it ensures that the doctors have the instruments that they prefer.
