Optimizing workforce costs

SAMI isn't just a scheduling solution it's a powerful ally for facilities looking to optimize workforce costs. By providing a complete view of your schedule — showing your employees and independent healthcare professionals in one place — communities can more conveniently and easily manage their workforce budgets and goals.

Budgeting analytics & HPPD: One significant challenge in healthcare scheduling is maintaining high quality of care while staying within budget. To address this, SAMI incorporates 'schedule-to-budget' analytics. By tracking HPPD, you can see if you are overstaffing or understaffing based on your budget and number of patients and residents. SAMI allows facilities to compare their target HPPD with actual HPPD, ensuring you stay on track with your budget.

Visualizing and managing coverage: With SAMI, facilities can see how close they are to their workforce goals and whether they need to make adjustments. With visibility into your total workforce, it’s easier to see gaps, manage coverage and adjust schedules while ensuring you stay within budgetary constraints. By significantly reducing unfilled shifts, SAMI empowers facilities to overcome staffing challenges, combat burnout, and elevate the quality of care provided. SAMI customers reduced unfilled shifts up to 90%, helping their teams beat burnout and increase quality of care.*

Touchstone saves $1.7M: With SAMI, Touchstone gained a complete view of their schedule, showing their internal team members and independent workers in one system. With SAMI, Touchstone saved $1.7M annually by optimizing workforce costs, reduced unfilled shifts by 89%, saved 500 hours in administrative time per community and gained 100% total workforce visibility.

SAMI brings an intelligent, streamlined approach to workforce management. It helps ensure high-quality care for patients and does so in a cost-effective manner, proving to be an invaluable asset for senior care facilities.
