How Medical Tablet Carts Impact Healthcare

medical table carts impact

Many industries have seen an increase in technological advances and virtual work in the past decade. With the shifts in technology, many things are more accessible now than ever.

One of these things being how the healthcare industry provides patient care. Tablet carts are one of the more consistent and effective ways providers are treating their patients, in and out of the office.

What Are Medical Tablet Carts & How Are They Helping Healthcare?

DATACART™ medical tablet carts are designed to help you improve the efficiency and productivity of your healthcare facility. Because these carts are so versatile, they can be used in a variety of settings, from outpatient clinics to large hospitals.

Medical tablet carts are the perfect solution to some of the common problems found in healthcare facilities. These mobile carts can be used to store and transport a variety of different items, from medical files to pharmaceuticals, offering increased efficiency and productivity while saving valuable space.

The first step with ordering tablet carts is determining how these carts can benefit you. Once you know how you want to use them, you can begin searching for the right one for your needs.

Here are some of the ways a tablet cart can be beneficial in healthcare:

Smaller Size

Medical tablet carts are compact enough that they won’t consume much space in an area where there is already limited room. This makes them ideal for use in offices with limited floor space or small exam rooms where there isn’t enough room for a regular desk and chair setup.

Your storage space won’t suffer while you provide the best care for your patients. The two main medical tablet carts DATACART™ offers are the Small Factor Form (SFF) cart with a Tablet mount and the Tablet Roll stand cart. Both carts offer similar benefits to a larger medical cart, but in a fraction of the size — both less than 35 pounds.

The smaller footprint on these carts also plays into the next benefit of the greater mobility that is achieved.

Greater Mobility

The mobile design allows you to take your medical tablet cart anywhere in your facility without having to worry about moving furniture or rearranging the layout of your office. You can even move it outside if necessary.

Additionally, using tablets to work from allows the nurses and doctors alike to easily detach and attach these tablets anywhere and return them to the easy locking mechanisms on the carts.

Increased Accessibility

The ability to easily access the items on a medical tablet cart means that your staff will spend less time searching for things they need. This not only saves time but also helps ensure that your staff members don’t forget important items when they’re working with patients.

Another aspect of accessibility is the relationship between telehealth and telemedicine. Unlike traditional telehealth carts, tablet carts are much more accessible in size and less intimidating for patients. Furthermore, quarantined physicians and patients can still receive care in and out of the office.

A quarantined physician or potentially sick patient can still provide or seek care remotely. Everyone is bound to get sick at some point during the year, this highly includes our physicians that work with potentially sick patients every day. A quarantined physician could provide resources or simple care when they can access a tablet or tablet cart from any space.

While there are specific telehealth and telemedicine carts that are made for this specific type of care, a patient could still hear from their provider in a more personal way by using the tablet carts to provide swift and easy care.

Improved Workflow & Productivity

A tablet cart can help improve workflow by making it easier for doctors and other staff to provide care. Tablet carts also adjust smoothly for great sit-to-stand capabilities. This reduces stress and improves efficiency while also improving patient care by reducing wait times.

Since medical tablet carts are easy to use, that means both experienced and inexperienced users will find them simple to operate. They come with a variety of features that make it easy for you to handle medical records, communicate with patients and their families, and conduct other tasks quickly.

With fewer trips back and forth between rooms, you’ll see an increase in productivity throughout your facility. This is especially true for nurses who need to move quickly from room to room as part of their job responsibilities.

With a medical tablet cart, nurses can easily transport supplies from one room to another without having to make multiple trips back down hallways or up staircases. Just pick up your tablet or roll your cart to the next room to continue providing care to your patients.

Lifesaving Organization

One of the last main reasons tablet carts are extremely effective is that they allow users to organize their supplies in an easy-to-access manner. Physicians can quickly access the internet for educational information, medical documents, healthcare resources, and other general concerns patients may have rather than having them piled up on shelves or difficult-to-reach spaces when needed in an emergency situation.

With the convenient storage attachments on the tablet carts, you have everything you need at your fingertips in a compact & simple design. Contact us today to discuss how our DATACART™ medical tablet carts can benefit your facility!

Virtual Patient Visits

When most people think of telehealth, virtual visits are what come to mind first.

From measuring blood, pressure, oxygen saturation, heart rate, temperature, and ECG, to sharing images with patients, the portable telehealth kit is a top choice for providers using their Home Care Monitoring solution.

The combination of ITeT’s telehealth solutions and DataCart™’s computer carts and kits have made a positive impact on both the care providers and the patients that they serve.

What Nurses Look For When Selecting Telehealth Carts

What to look for in telehealth carts

Telehealth is on the rise at a rapid pace in 2022, and the equipment and advancements in telehealth and telemedicine are only getting better. Nurses now have access not only at their fingertips to their records, communication channels, and other tools and assets but they also have this access available on the go with the addition of telehealth carts. Telehealth medical carts are not only beneficial to nurses for their transportability, but also for their communication capabilities, ease of use, customization, and so much more.

What Nurses Look for When Selecting a Telehealth Cart

When the time comes for nurses to select the telehealth cart that is the best fit for them, there are 3 main categories to look into before making a decision.

Transportability

Having the freedom to take your gear on the go is a huge benefit when working in the medical field. Whether that’s different electronic devices or the need for a full computer setup, telehealth carts help keep needed items close by at all times. Our carts also have the option of battery life on the go, without the hassle of cords, wires, and the need to navigate an outlet.

Nurses are constantly on their feet and carrying multiple items at a time. Our carts provide the ability to place your work materials down while also being able to take them with you anywhere throughout the day. Some of our carts also come with the addition of utility bins and compartments to provide the perfect amount of additional storage for what you need from one location to the next.

Communication

Adaptation to digital communication is a key factor when purchasing new equipment. Living in the age of COVID-19, having access to digital communication with patients allows nurses to do their job anywhere, at any time. Using telehealth carts that allow for wireless audio communication and that integrate high-definition cameras provides cost-effective ways to properly and efficiently provide a remote diagnosis in a clinical setting.

This also allows for nurses, doctors, and patients to develop face-to-face relationships and convey empathy through their visits all while being in different locations. Having the access to wireless, visual and audio communication helps staff build more connections, and be more personable and intentional.

Ease of Use

After a long day on the job, the number one thing nurses are looking for is equipment that allows for an efficient setup, is customizable to their liking, and is easy to clean. With a telehealth cart, nurses can take their workstations on the go, optimize their cart with customization, and routinely keep up on maintenance and cleaning without the hassle of an entire workspace.

Which DataCart SFF Cart to Choose

There are so many options of DataCart SFF carts to choose from, so which one should you purchase? The decision may feel impossible, but there are plenty of ways to focus on a specific type of cart that we offer.

Tablet Roll Stand

If you’re looking for the cart to best fit for transportability, you may want to check out our Tablet Roll Stand. Complete with a multi-purpose storage bin, 3″ noiseless easy roll twin casters, and easily adjustable tablet viewing modes for optimal viewing comfort. This tablet on wheels solution is compact, lightweight, and easily transportable throughout any environment.

Advantages Of Using Powered Medical Carts

Advantages of powered medical carts

The healthcare industry is advancing at a rapid pace. Every day there are discoveries, new advancements, new tools, and new technology. The addition of Small Form Factor (SFF) and telehealth medical carts has been extremely beneficial for healthcare professionals and patients alike, but the addition of powered medical carts is where the game began to change. Our powered medical carts are a key component in capturing data at the point of care, creating ease and efficiency in healthcare.

Advantages of Using Powered Medical Carts

One of the biggest advantages of using powered medical carts is the technology that comes along with them. Not only do you have your tools, communication, and supplies all in one place (and at your fingertips) but you have continued battery power, increased screen real estate, and customization to best fit your desired needs.

Technological Advantages

Taking your workstation on the go requires a lot (and we mean A LOT) of power on the backend. Our powered medical carts make this possible with continued battery power throughout the day, and an extremely healthy and long battery life. This eliminates the possibility of losing data and valuable information, instilling confidence among its users.

The ability to take a large monitor or screen with you wherever you go is another advantage of our powered medical carts. Some options include mounts and screens already programmed into the carts, increasing screen real estate tremendously. Our carts are designed to allow for screen adjustment, such as swiveling and tilting along with monitor selection for your perfectly configured cart preferences.

Our powered medical carts also integrate a push-button for electric sit-to-stand adjustments. After walking and being on your feet all day, it’s highly beneficial to be able to bring your workspace down to a seated level with just the push of a button.

Other Versatile Advantages

Along with having technological advantages, our medical carts are highly efficient when it comes to storage, personalization, and cart maintenance.

With any position in the medical field, you have a million things to jumble. Documents, data, and tools all need a specific place to be stored. With our carts, multiple compartments allow for document storage, cable management, and accessory additions. This way, you can keep your cart organized while also keeping your cart fully equipped with everything you need in your day-to-day work life.

Personalization may not always seem like the most important aspect when purchasing a cart, but it’s always a bonus. We offer add-ons and customization to our carts to allow our customers to find their perfect fit. Whether it’s selecting a monitor type or having custom configurations done, our goal is to get our clients set up with their ideal workspace on the go.

Cart maintenance is often overlooked when shopping around, and our goal at DataCart is to provide swift and easy maintenance every single time we create a product. Our carts are specifically designed for easy cleaning and accessible maintenance so that your cart can stay top of the line, all the time.

If you’re in a work environment where long battery life is a must, or you have smaller room settings in the office, using powered medical carts may be the best option for you and your team. Contact us today and see how many different ways we can combine our solutions to make the perfect solution for your needs!
