OnShift, Inc., a software program allowing long-term care and senior living providers to schedule staff and manage shifts, has expanded its service platform to include the iPad.
The innovation is expected to help directors of nursing, administrators, schedulers, and others in long-term care and senior living to save time and improve efficiency by giving them the ability to access, view, create, update, and manage schedules and staffing information from any device.
The iPad platform allows for mobility in sending open shift messages to qualified and available staff via text, email and automated phone call.
“Our on-call nurses can have scheduling at their fingertips with OnShift on the iPad. A few taps will eliminate hours of phone calls trying to find replacements when someone calls off. Open shifts can happen anytime, anywhere, and we are really looking forward to the convenience of OnShift on the iPad,” stated Michele Brown, administrator, The Neighborhoods at Quail Creek.
In addition to open shift management, all OnShift capabilities are available on the iPad, including scheduling, overtime prevention, and reporting; the program predicts overtime and understaffing and helps senior care operators to stay on top of staffing needs.
