Medical management is a complex field with many demands, but the most important concern is patient care. Unfortunately, developing a useful and accurate schedule for all of your medical staff can be time-consuming and costly. Good medical scheduling software is hard to find.
Scheduling errors, shift swaps, and absent team members can leave your medical facility understaffed. That means patient care suffers. At the same time, you don't want to absorb the extra expense of overtime for your hourly employees if you don't need to.
ShiftPlanning has developed an excellent staff scheduling package that meets your medical scheduling needs perfectly. With ShiftPlanning, you'll spend less time coming up with schedules and more time on patient care.

Scheduling so much easier, I would definitely recommend ShiftPlanning to others.Matthew Naftilan Yale University School of Medicine
The very nature of medical staff scheduling demands the utmost efficiency when it comes to managing scheduling for staff and physicians at medical offices, hospitals, home health services, medical centers and other medical care facilities.
While some medical facilities focus exclusively on certain types of medical care, others deal with ad hoc emergencies as part of their normal operations. Some medical practices and institutions engage in community awareness and prevention programs to help educate the public on various medical concerns, and all of these activities have their own scheduling demands.
With so many positions and skill requirements to meet, there is no room for anything less than total staff organization, especially when the staff count reaches into the dozens, hundreds and even thousands, operating 24/7 and covering hundreds of shifts.
ShiftPlanning's custom installation and set-up allows every medical staffing demand to be met. Whether there are two or three shifts to cover in each 24-hour cycle, and taking into account the individual needs and preferences of each staff member, ShiftPlanning provides the powerful scheduling tools you need to cover a multitude of shifts, needs and expectations every day, efficiently and easily.
