Ditch the Spreadsheets - E-Rostering Is Coming to a Hospital Near You…

In an era when computers can handle almost everything, it's amazing that some Irish hospitals still rely on spread sheets, clipboards, notice boards, and from time to time a bit of sweet talking and arm twisting to function!

Co.Wicklow (I-Newswire) January 28, 2014 - The introduction of e-Rostering is finally on the horizon for Irish hospitals. The Health Service Executive (HSE) recently invited tenders from suitably qualified service providers for the provision of an e-rostering system that will support and assist the effective utilisation of rostered workforce resources nationally.

The healthcare sector in Ireland is undoubtedly facing significant operational challenges with demand rising and resources falling. Considering the limited resources, the logical next step had to be finding new ways to improve operational efficiency, and the subsequent value of care to patients. This is where technology has excelled in recent years and up to now it was a missed opportunity. By automating processes hospitals will be able to eliminate error prone paper-based rosters / schedules and excel spread-sheets along with time consuming administrative tasks. Allocating resources where and when they are needed will be easily achieved.

Softworks have just published a new case study in conjunction with The Bon Secours Hospital in Cork. The study demonstrates how the hospital achieved tangible results with automated Scheduling, Time & Attendance and Absence Management including;

Better Rostering and time management effectiveness

Increased efficiencies that benefited both employees and patients

Improved management information & reporting

Greater employee engagement & empowerment
