Northside Health System Continues System-Wide Implementation of Schedule360 Hospital Scheduling Software
October 31, 2016
Northside Hospital recently announced that it will continue the system-wide roll-out of Schedule360® for its respective Surgical Services Groups. Northside Health System is a leading provider of healthcare for the Greater Atlanta area and is comprised of three facilities; Northside Hospital Atlanta, Northside Hospital Forsyth, and Northside Hospital Cherokee.
Enterprise Scheduling Across Multiple Locations
In 2014, Northside began using Schedule360® in their Emergency Departments for all three campuses. After a successful launch, the next phase of implementation in mid-2015, was focused on their Women’s Services Groups (Labor& Delivery and Family Centered Care). Iram Hernandez, IT Coordinator explains, “As Northside delivers more babies each year that any other hospital in the U.S., our Women’s Services Departments are extremely large with many employees, and require a scheduling system with features that allow flexibility based on the respective scheduling needs of these units. We felt that if Schedule360® could be successful with these groups, this success would translate to the other Departments within the system.” After a successful implementation for the ED and Women’s Services Teams, we decided to move forward with an aggressive roll-out of Schedule360® system-wide, launching a new group (multiple units) every month until all Patient Care Departments were live.”
Schedule Transparency, Configuration, and Customer Support for Surgical Services
Tisha Coleman, Surgical Services System Analyst comments further on working with Schedule360®. “Schedule360® has worked extremely well for our respective Surgical Services teams. The Schedule360® team is with us every step of the way for launching new departments and is very hands-on with training the end users. They continue to take our suggestions for enhancing the system to better meet our needs and deliver custom changes in a short period of time. The ability for Schedule360® to configure specific features by both department and employee-type allows a greater level of flexibility to satisfy our Manager and Employee end-users.”
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.
