Your workday is likely very busy. Whether you’re a physician, staff member or administrative member of your organization, there’s a multitude of tasks you need to accomplish; and probably more than one place you need to be at once. Managing a confusing schedule can be hard. If your organization has an automated scheduling application that can help you better map out your day, you can save you, your co-workers and your patients unnecessary stress and confusion. Here are some ways you can feel relief with automated scheduling:
Automated scheduling builds your schedule, in addition to the rest of your co-workers’ schedules, by incorporating your contractual obligations and assigned roles, as well as the rules of your organization. This creates a schedule that fulfills all of your obligations without overworking or double booking you. From there, you can easily access your schedule via web portals, mobile applications or directly in your personal calendar via integration.
Automated scheduling also makes time off or vacation requests effortless. You can access the application’s web portal and submit a request. What’s more, the best applications inform you of remaining vacation days or sick time. From there, your administrators can approve or deny the request and inform you in real time.
More Constant Communication
Communication is key to the successful operation of a healthcare organization or practice. An automated scheduling application can allow you to more easily communicate with administrators, see customized, relevant views of your schedule and keep everyone informed of you are at all times. This keeps everyone on the same page and avoids frustration, confusion and lost time or money.
