FARGO, ND - August 4, 2010 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. (ABS) announced today that Trinity Health, a North Dakota-based healthcare system, has chosen ScheduleAnywhere to create staff schedules for the 700 employees in its network of hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities. Trinity Health's managers and staff benefit from ScheduleAnywhere's real-time schedule information.
Managing Changes to Staff Schedules
Staffing coordinators and nurse managers are now able to make informed staffing decisions based on current schedule data. They can access schedule data from remote locations, track bonus shifts scheduled for employees, and use coverage watches to automatically track scheduled staff and staff hours, which reduces the chance for adding calculation errors.
"It had become extremely difficult to schedule employees with the old pen-and-paper method, especially since the schedule changes constantly. By the end of a pay period, the posted schedule doesn't even resemble the original," said Nikki Roed, vice president of nursing services at Trinity Health. "ScheduleAnywhere was easy to learn and it's been an easy way to put together and manage our schedules."
Communicating Staff Schedules
Since ScheduleAnywhere is online healthcare and nurse scheduling software, employees can login to see when they work and to request time off. They will always see the most current schedule. Managers can share schedules across departments and use the built-in messaging system to communicate with other managers.
"ScheduleAnywhere is an efficient way to create schedules and ensure proper shift coverage, while dealing with time-off requests," said Jon Forknell, vice president and general manager of Atlas Business Solutions. "ScheduleAnywhere is also a great tool for easier communication. It allows for more transparency, so managers and employees can see the most current and up-to-date schedules at anytime from anywhere."
