Modernize Your Remote Workforce Management Strategies
Managing a remote workforce is the new normal. The reality that COVID-19 is changing the way we work can no longer be disputed. We may have thought it would be temporary amid COVID-19, but what many administrators are realizing is it doesn't really make sense to go back to the workplace strategies we practiced before the pandemic hit. If you'd have asked 100 companies before COVID-19 if they would support their workforce working remotely, very few would’ve jumped onboard. However, given the abrupt and unexpected opportunity to learn just how effective a virtual workforce can be, many are choosing to remain remote and are encouraging their workforce to settle into this new normal.

March 31, 2021
Adopting a well-balanced employee scheduling software is a great tool for ensuring a safe and productive working environment, especially in times like these when resources are stretched thin and patient needs are greater than ever before. Responsive scheduling software is an easy way to handle any last-minute needs. Being aware of and having the ability to prevent staff shortages is made possible with the help of a robust web-based solution. The increased workload assumed by employees across the country demonstrates the need for healthcare facilities to develop agile responses to unpredictable medical situations. With the help of responsive scheduling software, it becomes possible to ensure sufficient staffing levels, even during difficult times.
Self-Reporting for Licensure and Credentials
March 29, 2021
Schedule360 released a new feature to allow users to self-report their licensing requirements, renewals, and other credentials. Admins can create credentials for self-reporting and users are able to upload and create their own profiles. Licensing and credentialing for pharmacists is difficult to keep track of, especially since each individual pharmacist has different renewal dates for their licensure. We were able to assist one of our chain pharmacy clients by developing an innovative solution to one of their common scheduling pain points. They wanted a simple way for their pharmacists to self-report their state licensing and renewal dates within their own scheduling interfaces. At the time, only schedulers and admins could add this information. This new feature allows pharmacists to self-report their state licensing (multiple if applicable), with renewal dates. It also provides timestamps whenever renewals are self-reported.

March 10, 2021
Pharmacies have always been busy, but since the onset of COVID-19, pharmacy life is busier than ever before. Today’s pharmacies are filling a higher volume of prescriptions, performing COVID testing, and offering curbside services in addition to routine services they normally provide to patients. In some cases, they’re even providing home delivery on both RX and OTC medications. Pharmacies continue to provide convenience to their patients while striving to reduce face-to-face interactions to support the overall health of the community.
