Qualities to Look for in Medical Scheduling Software

Posted by Shift Admin on January 22, 2019 at 6:00 AM

Is your organization in the market for a new way to tackle the dreaded process of scheduling? There may be more out there than you realize! Here are a few things to look for.

Efficiency and Ease

The purpose of using scheduling software is to put your days of writing schedules by hand far behind you. What used to take days (or in some cases, weeks) now only takes a matter of minutes. Approximately 20 minutes, to be precise! Shift Admin uses a number of intuitive features to generate a fully-staffed, fully-optimized schedule based on rules and limitations that are determined by you and your needs.

Customization Capabilities

Does your software play by your rules and not the other way around? Shift Admin offers a scheduling process that is top-to-bottom, 100% customizable. Our software allows you to enter users and their personal information, define scheduling parameters, set rules, and then weight those rules to establish their priority against other rules. Shift Admin then uses those parameters and weighted rules to generate a schedule that is fair, equitable, and completely conflict-free. As if that wasn’t enough, our customization also extends to include reporting and payroll!

Accessibility

As the backbone of your organization’s ability to operate efficiently, your schedule should always be within arm’s (or finger’s) reach. That’s why we’ve made Shift Admin 100% online, which means providers and staff members can access our software from anywhere. Shift Admin allows users to know when they’re working, know who’s on call, know when there’s a shift available for pick-up, and much, much more. Employees can also access their schedule on the Shift Admin app, which can actually sync with their preferred mobile calendar application. 100% online means that everyone has access to the most up-to-date version of the schedule at all times.

Cost

Cost is a topic that most people don’t look forward to discussing but is one that is ultimately unavoidable. As we’ve discussed before, considering the cost of operating without new software is just as important as considering the cost of actually obtaining it. At Shift Admin, we believe that you should only pay for what you get: no hidden fees, no one-size-fits-all applications, just customized,  per scheduled user pricing.

Support

Adopting new software in your organization is a big deal and it’s very common to need some assistance with the process. For that reason, it’s important to find a scheduling software that offers support solutions to help you tackle any obstacle that stands in the way of your ability to use the product to its fullest potential. At Shift Admin, our commitment to your success doesn’t stop at the launch. Our support team will be there to assist you during every step of the transition process from onboarding all the way to troubleshooting.
