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:
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.
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.
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.
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!
