The complete doctor scheduling solution
Staff scheduling and work schedule management at medical centers, clinics, and hospitals presents many challenges. Determining a work schedule for doctors and their staff that is fair and efficient is not easy. Scheduling software like Snap Schedule solves this complex problem and helps managers/administrators schedule doctors, separate pools of staff, and multiple practice sites more efficiently than manual, paper-based scheduling processes of the past.
As a doctor, you are not only responsible for patient care, but also for scheduling other physicians and nurses. Perhaps you manage a department within a hospital or you are running your own practice. Most healthcare organizations have a variety of job positions that require specific skills and different work schedules. A unit in an organization may prefer pattern scheduling where the staff commits to work a set number of shift types (day, evening, night) in a given time period while other organizations may choose preference scheduling where the staff defines individual preference for shift types.
Snap Schedule scheduling software helps doctors and office managers meet these challenges. It is packed with powerful shift scheduling features and gives you instant access to key decision-making criteria, including staffing requirements, regular, overtime and on-call hours, labor costs, employee skills and certifications, employee availability and preferences, and more.
Drag-and-drop or auto-generate shift schedules for an unlimited number of employees and shifts. Support fixed, rotating, split, multiple shifts, time off, and on calls.
