OnShift Unveils OnShift on the iPad
Healthcare Scheduling Software Supports Mobile Workforces
September 19, 2011, LAS VEGAS, AHCA/NCAL Annual Convention — Reinforcing OnShift’s strategy to support workers on-the-go, OnShift today unveiled OnShift on the iPad. With busy schedules and hectic work environments, directors of nursing (DON), administrators, schedulers, and others in long-term care and senior living require access to staffing and scheduling information around the clock, from any device. With OnShift on the iPad, they save time and improve efficiencies with the ability to easily view, create, update and manage schedules from anywhere.
With the iPad in hand, schedulers can easily respond to last minute call-offs and staffing emergencies, with just a few taps. Using OnShift’s intelligent communications platform, open shift messages are sent to qualified and available staff via text, email and automated phone call, with replacements typically secured in minutes.
“Our on-call nurses can have scheduling at their fingertips with OnShift on the iPad. A few taps will eliminate hours of phone calls trying to find replacements when someone calls off. Open shifts can happen anytime, anywhere, and we are really looking forward to the convenience of OnShift on the iPad,” stated Michele Brown, administrator, The Neighborhoods at Quail Creek.
In addition to open shift management, all OnShift capabilities are available on the iPad, including scheduling, overtime prevention, and reporting. Schedulers can easily create schedules, manage staff requests, and update assignments on the iPad. Administrators and executives can view and manage dashboards and reports to gain instant updates on staffing within and across buildings, including overtime, staffing levels, and labor cost management. And employees can control and manage their schedules from the iPad.
“Ease-of-use is the foundation to the OnShift application. OnShift on the iPad supports our commitment to streamline complex scheduling processes into simple tasks,” stated Mark Woodka, CEO of OnShift. “OnShift on the iPad gives long-term care and senior living operators the ability to further support today’s mobile workers and help them stay connected. With the industry’s nursing shortages, intense competition for resources, and employees juggling multiple tasks and jobs, this is one more way for providers to empower their employees, improve efficiencies, and stay on top of their staffing needs.”
As a SaaS (Software as a Service) application, providers get up and running quickly with OnShift and experience lower TCO than on-premise applications. Users can access OnShift 24 x 7 over the Internet from any computer or mobile device, including the iPad.
