PatientNow recently announced a reseller agreement with Tangent that will provide state-of-the-art medical computers and tablets to surgical and aesthetic physicians nation-wide.
Computers have become an integral component of medical practices over the years, and with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, or what is referred to as the Stimulus Package propelling Electronic Medical Records (EMR) into healthcare, the need for medical practices to move to a paperless office has become paramount.
Today physicians are seeing more patients on a daily basis than ever, creating larger number of charts that need to be completed by the end of each day. A growing number of physicians are using a portable wireless tablets, such as Tangent’s Medix 10T, to enter patient information during the examination. This allows the physician to document the necessary details in the Electronic Medical Records system while meeting with the patient. This also permits the physician to see the allotted number of patients without having to deal with paperwork at the end of the day.
Tangent recently released the Medix 10T touch screen tablet that uses hot swappable batteries instead of a single battery, allowing a physician to use the tablet the entire day, switching batteries as needed, and never having to waste time waiting on the device to reboot. In addition, the Medix 10T has an integrated fingerprint reader and barcode scanner so that medical tasks can be performed efficiently anywhere in the office. Tangent’s systems are hospital grade and are used by personnel throughout the medical practice such as the front office to check-in patients or schedule appointments, and the back-office to quickly enter or access information on wall-mounted terminals.
Using PatientNOW’s Medical Suite™ 5.0 software running on Tangent computer systems allows the medical practice to manage patient information while saving time and improving services of the practice. Tasks such as insurance verification, e-prescribing, EMR, inventory, electronic billing, and point-of-sale can all be accomplished using PatientNOW.
