    I am working at a new hospital, and they have a technical policy that I have to sign that says that I can use my cellphone or iPad, but only if I have installed this HIPAA (American patient information privacy laws) compliant text messaging app (tigertext) that they supply. They told me that it is because they are going to have doctors start texting patient info to admin to speed up the process.

    I can see how this could be productive, but I would like to know if any doctors have experience with this - anyone working in a hospital that uses text messaging to speed up patient admin?

    I don't want to disclose my age and eyesight issues because of HIPAA, but I can't read that small font. :D

    That reminds me, I think I remember you saying you're a cath lab STEMI coordinator RN. Am I right? Just curious since I'm an ICU RN.
