If you’ve ever considered a non-manual way to manage your clinical or non-clinical staff in a healthcare organisation, here are four good reasons why you should start thinking about it.
Looking to reduce the number of phone calls, emails, and WhatsApp messages when booking overtime and last minute shifts? Why not try a smarter way to monitor staff availability to work additional shifts in your healthcare organisation.
CliniShift is an e-resourcing platform designed specifically for the healthcare sector. We enable healthcare managers and their staff to ensure non-scheduled shifts are filled. Our unique queuing system enables managers to canvass staff in a convenient manner to maximise shift uptake.
Here are four of the benefits when managing your staff with CliniShift:
1. Save money
CliniShift set out to tackle the current reliance on high cost agency staff through the use of its technology. We drastically reduce expenditure and improve efficiencies by streamlining the communication between managers and staff when it comes to filling open shifts in rosters. We enable managers to easily identify when and where they are deploying resources, isolating, and eliminating pain points within your organisation.
2. Save time
What we found in one facility:
51% of all shifts filled in under 20 minutes.
6% of all shifts booked had under 24 hours notice
18% had under 48 hours notice
30% had less than 72 hours notice
Time saving is a crucial part of the process. CliniShift offers a cost-effective solution to enhance productivity by reducing the time required to fill an open shift and enhancing manager’s ability to focus on other area’s of operations.
3. Keep your schedule in your pocket
For example, one of the main reasons nurses give up their job is the great stress caused by the daily struggle to keep track of their constantly changing working schedule. Here at CliniShift, we believe in the benefits that increased staff satisfaction can bring, such as better patient care, less nurse turnover, and money saved. However, many healthcare organisations still use spreadsheets and word of mouth to manage contingency shifts. By using the CliniShift App your staff can:
Share their availability or mark themselves as busy, avoiding unnecessary communication with their manager
Accept or decline targeted shift requests
Apply to work listed vacancies
View canceled and missed shifts
Communicate directly with the manager about their booked shifts
No more calls, text messages or emails. With the CliniShift mobile App, staff will only ever receive notifications that are relevant to them and the shifts they want to work.
4. More coherent communication between Managers and staff
We enable managers and staff to communicate seamlessly and in real-time to fill overtime and last minute shifts through our Managers Portal that provides an overview of shift requirements from within one central dashboard. CliniChat, a specific shift based messaging service, allows managers directly communicate with staff at any time about booked shifts. Our broadcast feature enables managers to send short snippets of information relevant to particular shifts to groups of staff in one click. Staff scheduling has never been so easy!
