Technical Articles & Industry Trends
Often times in the medical field, computer hardware is overlooked. In the case of quality outcomes, overlooking computer hardware can have a dramatic impact. According to a recent HBR article, illegible handwriting and misinterpreted verbal orders from physicians resulted in 50% of incorrect or confusing orders at a Seattle based medical center. After implementing EMR processes, they drastically corrected all orders to nearly 100% overnight.
Healthcare IT professionals know that switching to digital adoption increases quality outcomes, but they also have to consider what equipment that “digital adoption” rests on. All medical equipment is important for quality care, but the computers used to run medical equipment and software play an essential role for quality outcomes. Healthcare computers provide the platform for most medical technologies and processes. Having the right computers should be a fundamental consideration in working toward quality outcomes.
The type of computer you use corresponds to the type of care you can give. Quality outcomes correspond to quality-oriented choices.
A medically certified computer allows you to provide higher quality. Here are few examples of how choosing the right healthcare hardware results in quality outcomes as outlined on the U.S Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
Adoption of EMR
Adoption of Medication Order Entry
Percentage of People Receiving Services
Time frame of People Receiving Services
Percentage of Patients Who Died as a Result of Surgery (surgical mortality rates)
Rate of Surgical Complications or Hospital-Acquired Infections.
Selecting a medical grade computer designed with high quality materials and having the latest medical certificates, which you will not find in any consumer grade device, improves quality outcomes. IT staff can easily select and integrate computers into surgical rooms or out-patient care facilities to prevent downtime and bring a smooth process flow 24/7 in the hospital.
