In a recent ShiftKey and OnShift webinar, "From exhausted to empowered: Unleashing the potential of your healthcare workforce," a comprehensive discussion was held about reducing burnout and enhancing workforce management in healthcare settings, particularly senior care facilities. Here’s a look at valuable strategies and insights shared during the session, which was led by Kate Pentz, MSN, RN, LNHA, an integrations manager for ShiftKey, and Julie Bizzarri, LHCA, MHCP, a senior solutions consultant for OnShift.
Embracing the per diem workforce effectively
Per diem workers are a vital component of a dynamic team, addressing immediate demands with flexibility and efficiency. ShiftKey facilitates this by offering a solution to manage turnover costs as well as meet the fluctuating needs of the healthcare environment, supporting a well-balanced and responsive workforce.
The necessity for intuitive and powerful technology is clear. Solutions should be easy to adopt, transparent in pricing and provide 24/7 insights into operational costs. SAMI (Schedule Automation Marketplace Integration), a technology solution developed by ShiftKey and OnShift, exemplifies this by offering complete automation of scheduling tasks with integrated access to ShiftKey’s marketplace of independent professionals, leading to increased efficiency and reduced operational costs.
Optimizing scheduling practices
Scheduling practices that prioritize employee preferences and budget adherence are key contributors to greater job satisfaction and organizational efficiency.
Outstanding results with SAMI
Users of SAMI are already witnessing remarkable improvements, including significant annual savings, increased occupancy rates and decreased unfilled shifts. This evolution in workforce management is providing tangible benefits to healthcare communities.
Enriching user experiences
Feedback from users underscores the impact of SAMI on enhancing connections between staff, residents and independent professionals. By streamlining scheduling responsibilities, coordinators are now more available to be on the floor and directly involved with residents and their care.
