Kronos scheduling solutions provide flexibility in deploying staff to meet changing needs. COVID-19 has greatly impacted healthcare staffing. Learn how Kronos® for Healthcare Solutions align staffing with census, workload and employee skills.
The pandemic has altered healthcare staffing, placing extreme pressure on emergency departments and ICU employees while OR (operational research), outpatient clinic, and physician office staff members have been idled and, in some cases, furloughed. Some healthcare organisations have moved to a tiered staffing model for their care teams, reassigning non-ICU nurses and staff to work with experienced ICU clinicians. Technology will play a pivotal role, both during this period and into the future, in ensuring business continuity and success.
Kronos scheduling solutions enable healthcare organisations to deploy staff according to current and anticipated patient census and needs; unit workloads; and employee skills, certifications, and availability:
Kronos Workforce Scheduler™ automates schedule creation based on census and predicted volumes while accounting for staff skills, experience, and preferences
Workforce Workload Manager™ for Healthcare determines each patient’s level-of-care needs and creates equitable shift assignments
