I was speaking to some of the folks that head up admissions and registration at Affinity Health System this week. They shared with me that recently it has become very common for patients to have to look up their home phone numbers when registering. Usually they look it up on their cell phones.
I can think of a couple of times recently when I could not rattle off my home phone number like I had my entire life. I am glad to hear that this is the result of the shift in reliance to mobile phones, rather than my approach to age 50 (at least that is my claim).
In the future we will all be like Einstein.
