Stay Staffed® Web-based Automation Case Study #2

Upgrading Scheduling Software Too Expensive for this Community Hospital… Selects Web-based Service as Low-Cost/Feature Rich alternative

This Midwestern community hospital has an in-house software program that handles the core scheduling function for the facility. However, open shift management is done manually. As open shifts become available the staffing office calls and emails staff to determine their availability to work these open shifts.

Staffing Management Challenge

Challenge: Find a solution to reduce the burdensome workloads associated with open shift management. The expense associated with upgrading their existing in-house core scheduling package with an open shift management component was determined to be too costly. It included the purchase of additional software and hardware products including expensive installation. Increased support fees and the indirect costs associated of utilizing hospital IT resources to upgrade their existing product were additional factors that influenced the decision to find an alternative solution.

Stay Staffed Solution - Internal Staffing Management (ISM)
