Fargo, ND - May 10, 2016 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. today announced that Kaiser Permanente's Anaheim Medical Center has chosen ScheduleAnywhere as its healthcare staff scheduling software for many of its hospital staff.
When it comes to coordinating shifts for the staff, doctors and nurses at Kaiser Permanente Orange County - Anaheim Medical Center, the schedule is changing daily. The outdated method of printing out an Excel spreadsheet with everyone's shifts wasn't working. That's why this provider decided to implement ScheduleAnywhere as its staff scheduling software.
Before ScheduleAnywhere was adopted, the regular flux of the schedule at Kaiser Permanente Orange County was time consuming. The team posts the schedule five weeks in advance. Whenever a change was made using the old method of scheduling, the team would have to make the adjustment in Excel and then email it out to each of the staff members.
With ScheduleAnywhere, the process of updating the schedule was cut down significantly. Now, the team can get updates on their cell phones and via email, which has proven to be a significant time saver for everyone at the healthcare center. Also, staff can enjoy free mobile apps for iPhone and Android, or access staff schedules 24/7/365 via the mobile-friendly website.
Another benefit of ScheduleAnywhere was the ease of submitting schedule requests. Now, instead of submitting a paper form and waiting for approval, all requests can be submitted online. This is especially useful for the Anaheim Medical Center's per diems.
Approximately 100 staff members move around daily and sometimes hourly. "By having this tool, our scheduling process will be so much easier with less confusion on where people are scheduled," said Delores Houck, Clinical Strategic Goals Manager. "The feedback from the staff has been great. Everyone seems to be happy with it and we have had no complaints!"
ScheduleAnywhere aided in easing the transition to the new software by hosting two training sessions. These were so helpful that the staff were able to create schedules that same day with ease. "I wish we'd purchased ScheduleAnywhere long ago," Houck says.
