Emergency Medicine Physician Scheduling Made Easy

Posted by Shift Admin on April 2, 2019 at 9:00 AM

In a recent study of 5,547 department schedules across 57 medical specialties, it was found that emergency medicine departments in the United States balance the most complex sets of staffing rules and monthly requests of any specialty in the medical industry. With an average of 62 repeating schedule rules and 276 monthly schedule requests, it’s no wonder why effectively managing and scheduling emergency medicine physicians is often a challenge for many.

When it comes to emergency medicine provider schedules, there is no margin for error. Using an outdated scheduling method creates a greater potential for wires getting crossed, thus putting jobs (and lives) on the line. Every schedule is unique for many reasons, and you need a solution that can keep up with the various complexities that come with your group.
