As an operations manager, scheduling your health care business can be an absolute nightmare. You have a number of different important tasks that needs to be accomplished:
- You have to connect the right caregiver with the right patient
- You need to ensure that the caregiver has the right certifications and skills
- You need to be able to handle schedule changes quickly and easily when either a nurse is unavailable, or a client no longer needs care (or cancels their appointment)
These tasks can be very time consuming, but with health care scheduling software from Hello Scheduling, we can make creating a schedule and communicating changes with staff members easy.
Scheduling Nurses With Patients
One of your top tasks as an operations manager is scheduling nurses with patients. As you probably know, most clients — especially in the home health business — like to see the same nurse. With Hello Scheduling, in one click you’ll be able to set which nurse should be assigned to a client.
Caregiver Certifications and Skills
With Hello Scheduling, it’s very easy to store skill and certification information using tags. As a manager, you can set skills for each employee, as well as the skills needed for each client.
Communicating Schedule Changes with 1 Click
Without fail, once a schedule is created, something will quickly become out of date. Maybe your nurse isn’t available to work, or a client cancels their appointment. Because Hello Scheduling is online — and there’s no files to send back and forth — all of your caregivers can log into Hello Scheduling to see when they work. Their schedule is always up to date.
Also, you can always email and text message a nurse right from Hello Scheduling to let them know of schedule changes. This way the team is always in sync.
