Location and Site - Definition

Location: The Scheduler allows the scheduling of one location, with any number of separate sites in that location up to a maximum of 64 shifts across all sites. Additional scheduling locations can be added for a nominal price; please contact ByteBloc Software for a quote. ByteBloc can be enabled to schedule an unlimited number of locations. Location schedules are completely independent of each other (such as resident and attending schedules), so that a Dr. Smith working in the schedule of one location is considered a different provider from a Dr. Smith working in the schedule of a second location.

A location can contain only one site (see the definition of a site immediately below), or it can contain more than one site that requires 'coordinated' scheduling. 'Coordinated' or 'integrated' scheduling means that the Scheduler does know that a Dr. Smith working at one site is the same as the Dr. Smith working at another site. The Scheduler will not schedule Dr. Smith for conflicting shifts at the separate sites that are contained in a single location, even if these shifts are located at different sites.

 

Site: Each scheduling location(as defined above) can be further divided into separate sites. The schedule of each site can be printed separately, but a Dr. Smith working at one site is known to be the same provider as the Dr. Smith working at a second site within the same location, allowing coordination of the schedules between the two sites. A location may contain only one site, or it can contain more than one site. All sites at a location can be printed on one schedule a 'Master schedule', or each site can be printed separately as 'Site Master schedules'. If there are more than two sites in one location, you can even print them in any combination of your choosing. A site can be a separate physical setting or simply shifts that make sense being printed together as a schedule.
