Twitter Discussion: How to handle communication between hospitalist and PCP at patient discharge

Twitter is a microblogging service where people answer the question "What are you doing?" via 140-character messages from their cellphone, laptop or desktop.

The oldest post is at the bottom, the newest at the top:

ruraldoctoring @kevinmd secure Twitter-like--agree it would be ideal. One of the entrepreneurs could work on it. Needs 128bit encryption & EZ interface.

kevinmd @ruraldoctoring Maybe a secure Twitter-like application in the future for hospitalist/PCP communication. Would be ideal.

ruraldoctoring @kevinmd I *always* dictate d/c summaries to PMD. We also fax notification that admission has taken place, and send H&P.

kevinmd @ruraldoctoring @doc_rob I'd prefer to receive an expedient discharge summary than a phone call. Hate being interrupted in the exam room.
