The article explores how HealthRoster is helping NUHT have better control of the allocation of staff and hence improve patient outcomes.
Paul Scandrett, Director of Healthcare comments, ‘Having the right information and tools is key for organisations that need to ensure staff are deployed in a way that positively impacts patient care. E-rostering is part of this, but as explored in the article other information is needed. This is one of the reasons we have launched our HealthRoster SafeCare software, it provides visibility of staffing levels in relation to patient acuity and dependency across wards and departments. It is our vision that ward managers will be able to use this information to make day-to-day operational changes to the rosters in real time facilitating the redeployment of staff across wards to avoid under or over-staffing.’
