People are the most valuable resource in a clinical environment. In order for the organization to run efficiently, every healthcare professional needs to be able to do their job in the place and at the time that they are needed. A single, all-inclusive physician scheduling system helps make organizing all of that possible and eases the workload of Human Resources departments that are constantly trying to improve the functionality of the healthcare organization.
Optimization and Productivity Improvements
Having a customizable scheduling system means your healthcare organization’s HR department can manage everything it needs to from one digital location and across multiple devices. This solution makes scheduling more unified and collaborative, and everyone will be able to see and understand their place in the organization. Additionally, physician scheduling software will have automation that makes managing an efficient workflow easier, with reminder setting, appointment and meeting scheduling, recurring events and data tracking for electronic health records (EHRs) all accounted for. This electronic medium allows the HR department ease of access and adaptability when working with so many different individuals’ schedules and patients at once.
When physician schedules are all kept in one place and are in sync with one another, physicians, technicians and all other clinical staff can see their schedules, compare them, share them and make changes as needed. When this is done, HR can keep track of all of it and help staff members figure out vacation time, shift switches and scheduling conflicts. This system results in workflow streamlining, reduced patient wait times, efficient data tracking and more positive relationships between physicians. It can also help prevent physician burnout by making their workflows more manageable.
Through the right physician scheduling software, staff members can also request schedule changes and adjustments much more easily and receive feedback and confirmation quickly. Furthermore, an advanced scheduling system means that physicians can share information as necessary with people outside their organization, assuming rules are set in place that allow that.
Time & Resource Tracking
Time and funding are inextricably linked in a healthcare environment. As a result, both must be managed carefully; careless scheduling can do a lot of harm to budget and payroll planning. With the right physician scheduling software, the healthcare organization’s Human Resources department can manage overtime and compensation. They will be able to track hours and pay rates and any form of leave or overtime that physicians use. The data from this system can also be adapted into reports, and it will help the organization save money in the long run.
What QGenda Offers
QGenda offers all of these physician scheduling features and more. One of QGenda’s signature software features is QGenda Insights, a program that brings together scheduling and labor data from across the organization to inform effective staffing strategy. As its name suggests, it provides insight that leadership and Human Resources departments can take action on to further improve and streamline the many moving parts of the clinical environment.
Furthermore, QGenda offers a customizable dashboard that everyone can use to access all of their scheduling and employee information in one place. With its included reporting and time/schedule management tools, Human Resources and people in charge of scheduling can see exactly what is needed and take steps to continue improving the system.
