Hospital Employee Scheduling Software

Although Your Next Seven's employee scheduling software first originated as a tool for the restaurant industry, its features accommodate a multitude of other industries. As an example, Your Next Seven is increasingly being used to schedule nurses and doctors at hospitals...so much so that a few of our clients only know us for our "Hospital Scheduling Software." It makes sense that employee schedules would be extremely important within the medical profession since patients depend on their doctors and nurses and any unscheduled absence could put a patient’s health at risk. Hospitals must be able to coordinate schedules throughout the year to ensure there are always enough doctors and nurses available to help patients. Three areas that cause the most concern for scheduling hospital staff are: vacations, illnesses, and seasonal increases in patient population.

Hospital Scheduling Software: Scheduling for Vacations
Everyone needs a good vacation to unwind from the rigors of daily work, and doctors are no exception. In fact, the high-stress nature of their jobs often necessitate multiple vacations per year. Your Next Seven employee scheduling software allows hospitals to identify which doctors are going to be on vacation quickly and easily. The unavailable doctors have their shifts blocked out in red and the staff is unable to schedule a shift for them during the scheduled vacation. This feature makes sure that doctors are not accidentally scheduled to work while they are out of town on vacation, thus causing serious problems at the hospital and ultimately, hurting patient care.

Hospital Scheduling Software: Scheduling for Illnesses
Just like everyone else, doctors and nurses get sick. But what happens to their patients if they can’t make it to work? If a hospital has trouble locating a doctor or nurse to take their place, patient care can suffer. By using Your Next Seven, hospitals are able to worry about taking care of patients instead of worrying about gaps in the schedule. Your Next Seven makes it exceptionally easy for doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff to swap their shifts and locate available staff members on the fly. Medical professionals can visit yn7.co to access their schedules and make changes from any smartphone. This makes it extremely easy for hospitals to create and manage schedules that are always up to date and accurate.

Hospital Scheduling Software: Scheduling for Seasonal Increases in Patient Population
Flu season, allergy season, football season, the first week of summer. Holidays that involve altogether too much alcohol consumption. What do these things have in common? They all lead to increased hospital attendance. Your Next Seven offers multiple “views” for hospitals to see (and print or edit) their schedules from. The “bar graph” view is useful in situations like the ones described above, since it provides a visual illustration of how much staff is scheduled for a particular time of day. If a hospital knows they typically have an increase in emergency-room patients during a particular week of the year, they can look at the schedule in “bar graph view” and make sure they have enough doctors and nurses overlapping on the schedule to cover the increase in demand.
