The first message from the ambulatory surgery suites at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, where I was having a routine surgical procedure, went out to my selected contacts at 10:41 a.m. on Monday, Eastern time. My daughter in Brooklyn, my designated emergency contact, elected to receive the updates via texts to her phone; a few friends from Boston to San Francisco got them by e-mail.

"You have received a message from Dr. William Inabnet of the Mount Sinai Hospital," the first bulletin said. "Paula has been seen by the anesthesia team and is now cleared for surgery." Learn More
