CT hospital offers patient updates at your fingertips

Stamford Advocate, August 4, 2014
When Wendy Ellen Miller had a hip replacement at Greenwich Hospital last month, her husband, Andrew Tatarsky, expected to feel the same lost uncertainty he usually felt when a loved one underwent surgery. "You're sitting in the waiting room, wondering what's happening," said Tatarsky, 58, who lives in New York City. "You don't really know what's going on." But his experience this time around was different, due to a new program at Greenwich Hospital, which may expand to other hospitals in the region. The hospital offers a program that allows the family members of some surgery patients to receive updates about their progress via text message.
