management of shifts in Healthcare

Hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and retirement homes, emergency and urgent care facilities – the healthcare sector is one of the areas where avoiding overtime and overtime shifts is more vital than ever, for the well-being of patients and also workers.

Cut down on overtime and avoid uncovered shifts by optimizing available healthcare staff.

Unfortunately, it is no mystery that the healthcare sector is currently going through a very difficult time. Funding cuts have inevitably resulted in consequent cuts in personnel, which in turn weigh on the organization of healthcare facilities.
