Employee Scheduling Software for Float Schedules

Float SchedulesFloat Schedules offer a valuable option for filling critical, open shifts. The challenge most hospitals face is the balancing act of efficiently matching an employee’s availability to the specific requirements of multiple shift openings. A never-ending, manual scheduling process consisting of spreadsheets, emails, and phone calls leaves staff unscheduled and shifts unfilled, leading to employee dissatisfaction or worse, a decrease in the quality of patient care.

As a secure cloud-hosted solution, Schedule360 supports real-time scheduling and communication with your Float Pool Staff, online, 24/7. Managers and schedulers have Float scheduling information at their fingertips and always know each employee’s qualifications, credentials, and availability.

Schedule360 for creating a Float schedule allows critical-need, Float Pools shift requests to be created directly in the system by nursing managers or schedulers, even if your health system uses another employee scheduling software or a manual scheduling process. Shifts are then instantaneously matched to qualified and available Float Pool staff, providing transparency and automated options for filling one or multiple shifts.  Schedule360 provides configurability (turn on/off) for the level of access by Float Pool employees to post availability and/or self-schedule into Float Pool-only openings.  One-Click reporting for management illustrates in detail, the Float Pool employee scheduled for each shift.  The fire drill for managing last-minute text messaging, call-outs, and cancellations can become a thing of the past
