Is there an automated physician schedule maker

Posted on 8/24/2016 by Elizabeth in category: scheduling software articles
If you’re in charge of physician scheduling, you know how tedious the task can be. Not only are you responsible for ensuring the medical facility is properly staffed to meet patient needs, but you also have to make sure that you are meeting the needs of the doctors you are creating the schedules for. Problems, such as over-scheduling, understaffing and not honoring requests for time off are not uncommon.

Fortunately, there is good news: The job of physician scheduling can be a whole lot easier, thanks to physician scheduling software.

Instead of using the old paper and pencil method of creating schedules, a web scheduling system fully automates shift scheduling, truly simplifying your job as a physician schedule maker and allowing you to ensure that the needs of doctors and patients are met, and with ease.

This technology offers some truly incredible benefits, including improving the productivity of doctors and improving the satisfaction of patients.

Benefits of Physician Scheduling Software

Some of the key benefits that a web scheduling system offers include:

Simplified schedule creation. This software truly makes the task of creating schedules an easier one. It offers easy access to doctor’s availabilities and their requests for time off all in one place. It also allows you to view past schedules. By having this information readily available, you can generate schedules that truly meet the needs of doctors, improving their work-life balance, their productivity, and patient care.

Easily adaptable. Do you schedule doctors who work in various locations, or for a large amount of doctors? If so, you will truly appreciate how adaptable emergency medicine scheduling software is, making it easier to create various schedules.

Offers payroll support. A web scheduling system provides support for payroll by offering different categories and rate variations. This ensures that doctors are being paid appropriately, and helps to minimize spending on overtime.

Easily accessible. Online scheduling systems are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They can be accessed from any device that is linked to the Internet, including tablets and smartphones, which allow doctors to their personalized schedules whenever they want.

Keeps everyone in-the-know. Web-based scheduling systems send out reminders via email and text messaging. This means that scheduling managers can easily see when requests for time off have been made, or shift swaps have occurred, and doctors can instantly see when new schedules have been published, or when changes have been made to their existing schedules.

This just scratched the surface of all the benefits your hospital, ER department, or medical practice can reap by implementing automated physician scheduling software. Emergency medicine scheduling software is truly beneficial for all: Scheduling managers, doctors, and patients. Contact us today for a free demo!
