Alphanumeric paging systems are unidirectional without prioritization capabilities. Newer electronic communication devices such as two-way text paging systems are capable of bidirectional paging and prioritization. While previous studies have evaluated alphanumeric paging systems in academic hospital settings, bidirectional two-way text paging systems have not been investigated. The goal of this study was to evaluate efficiency and impact on patient care delivery of a two-way text paging system… CONTINUE READING
