Medical Grade Tablets Improve Mobile Medicine Services

If you or a loved one are living in a long-term care center, mobile medicine is one of the best ways to deliver personalized medical care when and where you need it. Mobile medicine is an online collaboration of patients, their families, and the nurses and staff who provide day-to-day care at a facility to make sure that patients are getting the most complete care possible.

Medical tablets are an important technology for improving the patient experience in mobile medicine. From assisting with patient rounds to remote patient monitoring to viewing medical images from scans to enabling patients to communicate with their care team, medical tablets are the technology that assists healthcare professionals in hospitals, outpatient clinics, and in patients’ homes.

Virtual In-patient Care

Remote monitoring and virtual observation are possible with the combined technical advances of mobile medicine and rugged mobile solutions enabling on-demand monitoring, portable patient care, and more informed treatment plans for patients in any in-patient care facility. Whether a clinician needs to see an IV pump close-up or a family member wants to video conference with a patient, medical tablets support this virtual functionality.

Remote Patient Monitoring and Isolated Patient Use

Another common application for medical tablets is adapting them for in-patient use at the bedside. Some hospitals configure the tablets in the rooms of pediatric patients to allow them to communicate with family, friends, and caregivers. Medical tablets are equipped with a case that is designed to be easily mounted on wheeled healthcare carts, these cases are antimicrobial which reduces the spread of bacteria and other germs when used in multiple rooms. Rugged medical tablets are used in personalized patient care, reducing front-line medical staff from exposure to illnesses thus also saving hospitals on PPE costs.

Family Care Conferencing

If your loved one is in a nursing facility, attending a family care conference with the help of mobile devices enables the family to learn about any challenges your loved one is experiencing while helping to communicate often with the patient’s caregivers and doctors. Family conferencing helps the family stay connected to the patient during their length of stay which helps them feel less isolated and more connected to their loved ones.

Whether at home, in a clinic, or in a hospital setting, healthcare-focused medical tablets are the technology that is here for the foreseeable future providing healthcare both virtually and improving patient care while at the facility.
