November 11, 2020
Pharmacies are taking the wheel and becoming a driving force in the name of public safety and community convenience as COVID-19 surges on.

May Your Holiday Scheduling for Nurses Be Merry and Bright
October 16, 2020
While employees can be pre-scheduled for all holidays based on previous year schedules, Schedule360 can also be configured to release holiday scheduling periods early to allow employees the ability to plan travel and arrangements. While the holidays are known as the most wonderful time of the year, for nurses and other health care workers, it can also be one of the busiest and most stressful times of the year. Nurses aren’t always guaranteed to have the holidays off, as the need for patient care doesn’t suddenly disappear simply because it’s a holiday.
Pharmacists are Looking Ahead to Keep Communities Safe
September 30, 2020
When a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available, the demand for patients wanting to receive this vaccination will be extremely high. Many patients will turn to their local pharmacy chains to receive the vaccination, which will place a demand on time and scheduling of pharmacy staff to administer the shots. Chain pharmacies are already extremely busy with traditional fulfillment of prescriptions and have become an increasingly used source for administration of flu vaccinations.
Technology Helps Bridge Gaps in Nursing Coverage
September 25, 2020
In a perfect world, healthcare schedulers never have to worry about gaps in coverage as all shifts are always filled with highly skilled nurses who never miss a shift. In the real world, that’s just not the case. Last minute call-outs are a daily occurrence for all facilities and a real issue for schedulers as GAPS in coverage means a higher workload for the other staff and decreased quality of care for patients. In a last-minute call-out scenario, the easiest thing for a scheduler to do is call a supplemental agency for shift coverage, however, that decision comes at a much higher cost per shift than using an in-house employee.
New Feature: Workforce Management Reporting
September 16, 2020
Schedule360 developed an integrated workforce management report that allows users to measure metrics to drive labor target compliance. Schedule360 offers the most user-friendly and configurable employee shift schedule software on the market and we continually develop new features based on customer feedback. Recently, one of our health system clients requested that we develop an integrated workforce management report that contained metrics that would allow them to clearly see and measure multiple parameters by employee to drive labor target compliance for the hospital’s respective units. They wanted the report to be flexible with the ability to be queried, based on the individual needs of the end user. We realized that this report would not only benefit these clients but also all Health System clients, so we worked directly with the customer to develop the report.
