Rugged Tablet Computers in the Healthcare Field


Mobility is key when it comes to delivering a hardware solution that will change the game in the healthcare industry. Doctors want to provide better care for their patients. Nurses want to organize their doctors and their patients. And office staff want to get patients in and out as efficiently as possible while protecting their personal information. That's where digital patient enrollment systems come in.

The HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Privacy Rule sets standards for individually identifiable health information to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive information known as PHI (protected health information). All healthcare professionals are very aware of the HIPPA law and take the responsibility very seriously.


With patient care, efficiency and protection in mind, our products are paired with the leading manufacturers of magnetic stripe card readers to offer our healthcare customers a new way to improve efficiency in offices and waiting rooms. By integrating the most technologically advanced and encrypted magnetic stripe card readers into a robust case for Surface tablets, they are able to provide mobility to patients when they are at their worst and allow healthcare providers to maximize the use of their existing Electronic Health Record (EHR) system, as provided by Epic software.


Automated patient self-check-in systems

Providers can easily question and register patients with a quick swipe of a card to pre-populate existing patient information in Epic or another EHR or Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system. Patients can easily sit down and review details from a mobile tablet instead of standing in a long line or waiting if they don't feel comfortable.

The new rugged PC's offer the ability to attach magnetic stripe card readers for swiping credit cards, Flex Spending or HSA cards, making it easier for patients to swipe them for automated patient registration or to pay their medical bills.


The tablets in the Accentec product line are built tough from the inside out. The same rugged technology is used on the popular tablets when paired with a rugged Surface case. This minimizes tablet downtime that could cripple a busy healthcare provider's office.


No one has to worry about dropping a tablet. These cases are drop-tested with a running Surface tablet to earn MIL-STD-810G certification, which means they've been tested by the military to withstand drops from 10 feet and continue to function normally.

Who can use a mobile tablet for patient registration and enrollment?

It's a great solution for community hospitals, academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, multi-specialty groups, rehab centers, skilled nursing facilities, hospice facilities and independent practices. The option of a mobile, rugged tablet makes patient convenience, clinics and hospitals more efficient and gives staff the ability to focus on patients and even treat more patients.


Benefits for healthcare providers

In a world where providing the best and most efficient care to patients is the goal, and especially when there are more patients than staff to take care of them, the check-in and registration process is an easy area to improve efficiency. This is where tablets come into play in the healthcare industry.


Providers can capture patient data and take encrypted payment information - all from one device, updating the patient EHR while securely processing patient payments. The MSR can be customized to work with the provider's payment processor. The system is simple, easy to use and mobile. In addition to increased productivity, the case is robust and minimizes damage, downtime and future replacement costs.

Benefits to patients

Simply put, it is more convenient for the patient to give information to the healthcare provider. Instead of standing in what is often a long line at the front desk or a kiosk, the patient can sit comfortably while stating the necessary information, reducing the time between the waiting room and the exam room. This means patients can be "on the road to recovery" faster.
