QGenda introduces mobile-first solution for human resource management of nurses and staff

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE). Built from the ground up on a single platform, the solution includes healthcare-specific applications for scheduling, time tracking, compensation management, and workforce analytics.

QGenda Advanced Scheduling for Nurse and Staff extends QGenda’s industry-leading Advanced Scheduling for Providers solution with new tools for creating and managing dynamic nursing and staffing schedules. Advanced Scheduling, first introduced in 2006, is currently used by more than 650,000 physicians and other healthcare providers, or more than half of all providers in the United States. The transparency that a single scheduling solution provides for all members of the care team ensures appropriate engagement over needed care team ratios and patient care.

“Most healthcare organizations spend too much time creating and changing plans for care teams, resulting in significant administrative burden and costs, and a dissatisfied and disengaged workforce,” said Greg Benoit, CEO of QGenda. “There are more than 5.8 million nurses in the US, representing the largest — and most stressed — group of healthcare professionals. More than half of nurses are considering leaving the healthcare profession altogether. Now is a crucial time to adopt a more flexible and innovative approach to people management across the healthcare enterprise. Our latest product, designed specifically for nurses and staff, will help our customers balance supply and demand while empowering nurses and staff with more control over their schedules.”

Increase visibility and transparency for a more engaged workforce

Convenient self-scheduling and self-service through QGenda Advanced Scheduling for Nurse and Staff ensures nurses can easily see when and where they work, update their preferences and understand where they stand against goals. Optimized shift rotations and real-time notifications support flexible schedules and increase caregiver satisfaction.

“Carers want to be able to manage their own schedules, including the ability to set preferences or sign up for extra shifts and part shifts whenever they want,” said Jana Hill, RN, BSN, MSM, director, care logistics, Piedmont Athens Regional medical center. “QGenda offers a flexible scheduling solution that balances caregiver independence with the ability to efficiently meet the needs of each care unit from a managerial perspective. Nursing managers and staffing coordinators have the visibility they need to move workers between service line units and can reduce the time and effort required to manage dynamic schedule changes.”

Reduce administrative overhead

Automating work patterns coupled with robust self-scheduling reduces the time and hands-on effort required by caregivers to create and update schedules. They can dynamically change coverage requirements as patient counts and acuity levels change, and staff can move seamlessly between departments and locations while ensuring adequate staffing coverage with the right skills across shifts.

Make data-driven workforce planning decisions

With longitudinal insights into workforce goals, labor costs, and staffing coverage, healthcare executives can make better short- and long-term decisions using data-driven executive analytics related to past and current demand and workforce trends.
