Workforce Management for Healthcare Systems
Healthcare presents a broad range of unique challenges for both management and employees, and that extends to the human resources and operations departments. Managing the time and attendance needs of people working in assisted living, long-term care and senior living facilities and providing post-acute care or ambulatory emergency medical services requires a versatile, adaptable set of software solutions.
Overnight Staff Check-In
States carry requirements for the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) to ensure that care providers have adequate staffing. Focus has been given to awake staffing during the overnight shifts. Our Check-In module provides employers to monitor overnight staffing of their employees, integrated with the management of the employee’s time and Attendance records. Employees can utilize the same tools that they use for clocking in and out to Check-In on required frequencies in order to ensure awake staffing levels are met. Built in Alerts can notify / dispatch personnel when issues are determined.
Healthcare is a singularly challenging industry when it comes to creating and maintaining schedules. Hours are often unconventional and demand is constant, with many facilities requiring around-the-clock staffing. Even trickier, schedulers need to be sure that employees with specific skills and certifications are available at all times.
Every healthcare facility has its own specific rules and requirements that are vital to maintaining a smooth operation. Ascentis time and attendance software is easily configured to accommodate as many employees, codes and rules as your organization requires. A customizable dashboard and compatibility with a wide variety of third-party tools enables rules-based scheduling that keeps your shifts fully staffed.
Flexibility and communication
The healthcare field requires maximum flexibility when it comes to filling open schedules and exchanging shifts. Automating your time and attendance functions with Ascentis allows managers to quickly identify uncovered shifts and locate qualified workers to fill them.
An employee self-service option helps empower workers and ease the load on managers by allowing employees to submit time-off requests, pick up shifts and submit time sheets from anywhere using a mobile app, or via text, email or phone
