Manual scheduling simply doesn’t cut it in a dynamic healthcare environment, especially as you’re trying to accurately match to patient census and control high overtime costs. Plus, complying with union contract rules amounts to a guessing game when you’re relying on error-prone manual scheduling. The solution? Automation and workforce analytics.
Increased visibility of workforce data allows managers to act faster on information. They can look during a pay period to see if they are behind targets for labor hours, overtime, and costs — and this instant access to information builds a culture of accountability. Organizations that want to create productivity-related goals for managers can count on Kronos® Workforce Analytics™ for Healthcare as a reliable productivity measurement tool.
Manual scheduling takes up time — and automation frees up your staff to focus on more critical tasks. And with automation, schedule accuracy is never in question: Automated schedules automatically follow contract rules, and shift assignments are distributed properly among staff. Only staff members with current certifications and licenses are scheduled, and expiration alerts provide helpful reminders about renewal requirements.
With core reports available on desktop, managers can easily see incremental overtime by employee, allowing them to reduce unplanned overtime and better control labor costs. Workforce Analytics for Healthcare allows organizations to identify unplanned overtime before it has occurred and make necessary scheduling adjustments within the pay period.
Workforce Analytics for Healthcare gives nurse managers and health system leaders workforce visibility that leads to fact-based decisions — and data that leads to improved productivity, more accountability, and a culture of quality care and staff and patient satisfaction.
