Health service needs more SMS
« on: March 29, 2006, 01:52:41 AM »
http://www.theregist...03/28/nhs_needs_sms/ has a nice article about how the use of SMS can reduce costs for health services.

I'm sure this applies to other industries too.

Just noticed this thread. There are huge confidentiality issues here. I am an NHS Manager and an extremely known opponent to the new NHS IT system. For my information about this it is worth looking at www.e-health-insider.com.

An example is a hospital sms a 17 year old girl who has a hospital appointment and her parents do n't know anything about it. The mobile phone is on the coffee table!!! 

I shall be on the "Tonight" programme shortly abou these issues. Sir Trevor MacDonald is sending a film crew to interview me on Wed!!!
