Streamlining Your Scheduling with the Right Software is More Important Now Than Ever Before
October 6, 2021
When scheduling the staff who keep your facility running smoothly, you can’t afford to rely on outdated, manual scheduling methods. You also can’t afford to spend several months or years searching for a system that works for your team. You need to streamline your scheduling, and you need to do it now.
Admins and healthcare staff have a lot at stake this Fall as they brace for continued COVID surges across the country, along with the arrival of the seasonal flu. The scheduling methods you have been relying on may have gotten you by last year, but are they robust enough to evolve with your facility as we accept this new normal of long-term high demands in healthcare? Can you optimize your current staff and balance staff shortages and coverage gaps efficiently? If you’re unsure, it's time to consider a better way to manage your staff schedule.
It’s no secret that this pandemic added a heavy strain on admins whose resources were already stretched thin. Schedulers are faced with tremendous adversity overseeing and approving schedule changes, keeping a watchful eye on OT thresholds, and maintaining safe staff levels to ensure patients are receiving the quality of care they deserve. Your schedulers are valuable resources for your facility outside their scheduling responsibilities, and with the right scheduling solution you can better allocate their expertise where it’s best served: patient care and staff support.
Simplifying scheduling tasks and utilizing automation to maximize resources is one way to streamline your workflow-and operational strategies like this can have a really big impact on improving both staff morale and patient care.
Schedule360’s easy implementation process is designed to get you set up with a scheduling software solution that’s configured to fit your needs right away and we do all of the heavy lifting for you with data entry and set-up. The last thing we want to do is leave you stranded when you’re already feeling overwhelmed, so we directly manage implementation, Admin and Staff training and allow you a flexible launch timeline to implement roll out of the system on a timeline that works with your respective departments.
We assign a Schedule360 representative to work one on one with you, to gather a complete analysis of your specific scheduling needs, provide expert consultation and finally manage setup with IT, training, and admin departments.

Schedule360 uses ORDS (Oracle REST Data Services) to safely transfer time-off requests, employee credentials, schedule, and punch data between our application and third-party applications.
Real-Time Communication Needs
Scheduling needs are urgent and need to be addressed immediately, so waiting to hear back from staff on whether they’re available to fill a last-minute shift simply isn’t an option. Schedule360 scheduling software provides real-time communication with a one-click process for dispatch of shift-related messages to employees via Cell Phone text, Email, and through the internal Message Board. Internal messaging can also make note of changes made to shifts complete with time-stamped communication to keep everyone on the same page. This feature is especially helpful when shift-swapping or communicating with staff during an emergency.
