“SMS: The digital health tool of the century,” True Viral News
In an article published on June 27, 2017 on True Viral News, Nashville partner Roy Wyman discusses how medical professionals should navigate using SMS technology in the workplace. Mr. Wyman advised hospital executives to utilize incentives and education, such as security and compliance debriefings, to ensure employees are strictly using this technology for work purposes. “There’s a lot of push back because it’s easier to use their own devices, it’s the quickest way to get the job done, and education alone doesn’t work,” Wyman told the publication. “If you don’t give them incentive or a lot of fear they’re just going to do it anyway.” The article emphasizes the efficiency, when used properly, that SMS brings to the workplace and even outside of the workplace. Some hospitals are testing apps that will reach workers not always in the office, such as therapists, and other technologies for ambulances to alert hospitals of their estimated arrival.
