Increased Efficiency & Lower Margin of Error
Equitable and Complete. Scheduling software uses reporting and metrics to create a more equitable and complete schedule over time. This gives administrators a real-time look at how their schedule is performing day to day.
Reduced Overtime. According to a recent study completed by the Clinical & Group Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers & Systems (CGCAHPS), organizations that utilize automatic scheduling experience a 10-20% reduction in overtime. This makes for a more energized, focus staff can better perform their daily duties.
Complete, Accurate Assignments. In the same study conducted by CGCAHPS, feedback showed that automatic scheduling reduced the rate of missed or erroneous assignments by 80-90%.
Ensured ACA Compliance
Verifiable Time Tracking. In order to be fully compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), employers need to verify that their staff worked their assigned hours. Automatic scheduling provides clocking features that accurately report time worked.
Audit Ready. In the face of an audit, scheduling software’s clocking features generate reports that make it easy for staff and managers to respond in the face of an audit.
Increased ROI. In the same study, CGCAHPS found that the use of automated scheduling systems increased ROI of health organizations by 40%.
Reduced Cost Per Schedule. Scheduling systems limit the amount of time it takes to build staff schedules. Using equitable and complete scheduling capabilities, software reduces the cost to build schedules.
Reduced Turnover. With more equitable scheduling, organizations experience less burnout and higher rates of staff satisfaction. This allows organizations to more easily save money through the recruitment process.
Reduced Overtime. More accurate assignments mean more equitable scheduling, reducing the need and cost of unnecessary overtime hours.
Staff Satisfaction & Performance
Balanced Scheduling. By fairly distributing physicians and staff across different roles, scheduling software helps healthcare organizations achieve the equity they strive for.
Built for Responsiveness. Through features like mobile access and real-time alerts, staff can better keep track of shifts and be agile in the face of scheduling changes.
Reduced Employee Burnout. When staff are equitably scheduled, they are given the rest and rejuvenation necessary to give their all to assigned shifts and can help create a culture of physician wellness.
