Four Benefits and Features of Medical Cart Tablets

Technology plays an important role in the healthcare industry. Technological advances have opened the door to many opportunities for medical research, disease treatment, and patient care.

In a hospital environment, technologies such as portable medical tablets are being used to streamline operations and improve patient care. Tablet cart computers offer a new generation of convenience for healthcare professionals in inpatient data collection and transfer, patient intake and making information available to hospital staff in real-time. Not all portable devices available on the market are suitable for such a demanding environment such as a hospital or clinic setting.

When choosing the most suitable medical tablet, there are some key features to consider.

Hot-swappable batteries

Medical tablets come equipped with a hot-swappable battery which reduces the downtime a nurse may have changing out batteries in between patients or during the middle of a shift. Hot-swappable batteries can also be holstered on the back of the cart option, expanding the operating time and making it easy for healthcare practitioners to perform their duties in a busy or chaotic environment. Medical tablets have many accessory options, including multi-slot battery chargers which extend the run time of the tablet to multiple shifts. Multiple batteries can be charged and ready to go and when the drained battery on the tablet is ready to be switched out, the battery can be replaced without powering down the tablet. Meaning as the battery is being switched out the medical tablet stays in operation.


Emergency or not, DT Research medical tablets are lightweight, durable, and can withstand vibrations from machinery, if installed on a medical cart transferred from one room to another or even mounted inside of an ambulance. Patient data and vitals are easily accessible by healthcare professionals through the use of built-in CAC readers which allows personnel to access patient information through a card that is swiped and read.

Medical tablets are space-savers even when mounted on the slim cart, such as tabletwagen, and are purpose-built to meet the needs of the hospital environment.


Lightweight, powerful, and yet flexible, medical tablet cart systems are manufactured specifically with healthcare professionals in mind. The tablet can be taken off the cart when more mobility is needed to care for a patient. The tablet can be passed from one user to the next and can even be handled by the patient when signatures are required. Nurses and other staff members can easily record patient vitals and other information directly into the tablet which is then saved to provide a record of the care as well as reviewed by the next employee who provides care to the patient. Medical records are updated in real-time, cutting down on double entry and human error.

Improved readability

Medical applications have special requirements for screen visibility and the quality of images. DT Research medical tablets have a larger screen size, and an anti-glare solution built into the screen that helps diffuse glaring light, thus making it easier for the healthcare employee to see and review the data on the screen. Medical tablets provide perfect readability for any lighting, by being able to dim the backlight for dark rooms or increase brightness for rooms with high-bright lights or natural light.

Healthcare is a demanding field and relies heavily upon utilizing the most up-to-date and flexibleequipment to help doctors and nurses provide the highest quality in medical services. That is why choosing the right medical tablet is vital to the transfer of data, patient care and employee efficiency in many hospital environments and medical applications.
