Why Schedule360 is the Right Choice for Your Facility
Nurse scheduling software takes the guesswork and frustration out of scheduling your clinical staff. Having the right staff at the right time is crucial to your healthcare organization. With a shortage of qualified nurses, those nurses who are qualified end up working long hours with a lot of overtime and can become stressed out, and even burned out.
Taking nurse scheduling to a web-based software solution guarantees you will have the right coverage at any given time. Schedule360 can control workforce costs, improve productivity, fill last-minute needs, allow nurses to communicate their preferences, and help deliver high quality patient care at your facility. Schedule360 has advanced scheduling automation for balanced workload distribution that will ensure the proper staff coverage for every shift. Nurses can search and accept additional shifts via their computers or mobile devices within guidelines set by admins. Critical, last-minute needs can be dispatched to all qualified nurses quickly. In addition, your healthcare organization will receive labor tracking analytics and productivity monitoring.
Technology Can Solve Gaps in Nursing Coverage
Nursing coverage gaps are a real issue for healthcare facilities. Nearly every facility deals with last minute callouts and changing staffing needs to manage the actual patient load vs. projections. Gaps in coverage mean that the nursing and clinical staff have a higher workload and patient care may not meet the quality standards that your healthcare facility prides itself on. In many cases, schedulers will call supplemental agencies to cover the gaps, but the cost of using these agencies is much higher than using in-house clinical staff. Scheduling manually can be tedious, time-consuming, and stressful. Multiple phone calls, texts, and hours can be spent trying to cover one shift. It simply isn’t effective or efficient.
Nurse scheduling software has the innovative and automated features necessary to cover gaps in nursing and clinical staff. Your organization will have a comprehensive view of the schedule in real time with the ability to see everything from overtime thresholds to deficits in work hours, from certification management to credential tracking. You will have the right employees with the right credentials and certifications to fill the shifts necessary. Nursing staff will have a sense of ownership over their schedules and can trade shifts with ease and accuracy. Agency dependence can be drastically reduced with Schedule360’s nurse scheduling software.
The Best in KLAS recognition for 2021 proves that Schedule360 fills a real need in the healthcare field. Nurses and administrators both benefit from schedule transparency, proactive scheduling, and automated benefits. A Best in KLAS designation solidifies Schedule360’s position in the industry as a problem solver for one of the biggest headaches in healthcare scheduling.
