DeKalb Medical Physicians Group Chooses Schedule360
December 19, 2016
DeKalb Medical Physicians Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlanta-based, Dekalb Medical Health System announced today that it has chosen to adopt Schedule360® for the management of Physician and Mid-level provider employee shifts.
Consistency and Continuum of Care:
Emily Cooper, Float Pool Manager for DeKalb Physicians Group explains, “The decision to adopt Schedule360® was mainly based on the success and experience our parent group DeKalb Medical Center has realized over the past 10 years of using the system. Schedule360® will allow us better transparency of employee schedules within both our Clinics and our Hospitals. We are excited about the ability to optimize the respective schedules of our Float Pool staff to more seamlessly cover the many open shifts in a more automated fashion. Previously we were forced to manage these openings through a manual process consisting of multiple phone calls and spreadsheets. Another great feature is that our Staff can access their respective schedules 24×7 online via computer or mobile device. As Schedule360® communicates all schedule changes directly to the employee, this will eliminate the uncertainty of changes that were previously made manually.”
Schedule360® is a highly scalable solution designed to automate the labor management processes of scheduling and staffing. Schedule360® harnesses the power of the web through a “rules-based” system to provide the ultimate in schedule automation while ensuring the correct clinical mix for every shift and every unit within a facility. Schedule360® can be accessed from any internet connection by all users allowing full optimization of all FTE and PRN employees. Self-scheduling, Staggered Group Rotations, Set-Scheduling, and Dispatching Open needs, paired with comprehensive, proactive real-time reports are but just a few features offered.
