How will hospital scheduling software benefit me

Posted on 6/20/2018 by Elizabeth in category: scheduling software articles
Doctors have crazy schedules where they work long, irregular hours. Working weekends and nights is quite normal. Because of tedious physician scheduling, physicians are at a high risk of burnout. Their work and home life are imbalanced, contributing to a high turnover rate. And, without a doubt, this also impacts their family as well. 

A good way to achieve a balanced work and leisure time, decreasing burnout and increasing retention is by implementing hospital scheduling software. This software allows you to come up with an on-call schedule ahead of time — even up to a year in advance, giving doctors up-to-the-minute schedule access and the ability to plan their lives around their schedules.

Benefits of Emergency Medicine Scheduling Software

Some benefits of this software are as follows:

Ensures Shift Coverage

Scheduling software enables you to input your staff requirements and see if there's too few or too many staff members scheduled. Not only this, but this capability lets you see how changes in the schedule impact your shift coverage.

Provides Real-Time Updates

With shift scheduling, you can often feel like you're taking one step forward and a couple steps back if you're still distributing the schedule by posting it on the staff bulletin boards or sending it through email. Aside from this, doctors have to go to the bulletin board or check their emails constantly for the latest updates to the schedule. Both increase frustration and lower productivity.

Physician scheduling software makes updates in real-time that are available on a tablet, smartphone or other device with internet access. When schedule information is up-to-date in real-time like this, doctors don't have to constantly question whether the schedule is accurate or not. It also eliminates the need for scheduling phone calls in the middle of the night.

Reduces Overtime Expenses

Shift scheduling software lets you view shift hours and coverage instantly, thereby enabling you to optimize shift coverage and reduce overtime.

Offers Flexible Locations

There is no more need of having to go to multiple locations to schedule. Now you can switch between various locations and schedule, assigning staff to shifts at multiple locations or one with just a click of the mouse.

Eliminates Manual Processes

Manual methods of on-call schedule creation like emails, phone calls, faxes and handwritten notes consumes a lot of time and exhausts valuable human resources. When you're able to eliminate the manual process and replace it with web-based, real-time automation through scheduling software, it frees up yours and other employee's time for other important tasks.
