Why are hospitals stuck in the 90s- still using beepers to communicate doc to doc?
Reliability.
I just found a new supply of forks!

Reliability.
Maybe also because they can track and keep a record of pages, but not cell to cell calls.

I'm suprised noones found a way to replicate their reliability while adding 21 century features. Doctors  productivity would increase tremendously if they could communicate back and forth instead of using one way.

There's no app out there that can do what they need?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

That is a drawback but also can be a benefit to keep noise level down.

When my wife was in the hospital having our son, they had more of a walkie talkie type device. I'd call it a cross between a walkie talkie, pager, and a phone. @CM, the hospital was in the same network as the one you recently visited, do you remember what they were using?

If you use a hospital that CM uses too, don't be surprised if they are using devices from a century or two back.

It was a device they were wearing clipped on their shirts that has an ear bud on it. They may not have had it by you, just because they had it by me.

Same network, different hospital

HIPAA - patient privacy
Beepers are HIPAA compliant.
As are faxes. Now that's ancient technology!
