Show Notes

Fast, convenient, and cutting-edge, the new trend of text-messaging medical orders is being met with mixed results. Some favor the ease and speed, while others are concerned that it could comprise patient safety while not accurately documenting patient care.

Reporting our lead story during the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays  will be Rose Dunn, chief operations officer for First Class Solutions. Rose will report on findings of a survey focusing on texting of medical orders and the challenges this practice creates for the healthcare team. Finally, she’ll sum things up with what the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has to say about the practice.
