Notable quotes:
“We should be separating technologies for the right speed and urgency of communication.” – Jason Schaffer, MD

“We can’t solely rely on technology. We have to engage our brains and use the years and years of school that we have all spent learning how to be clinicians as we start to look as some of these messages that we receive and talk about the criticality.” – Liz Harvey, MSN
