What our customers have to say
Scheduling so much easier, I would definitely recommend ShiftPlanning to others.
The very nature of creating and managing office and hospital work schedules for doctors demands the utmost efficiency, regardless of whether you are managing a medical office, hospital, home health service, medical center or other medical care facility.
While some doctors focus exclusively on certain types of medical care, others deal with ad hoc emergencies as part of their normal operations. Some doctors also and 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 specialties and diverse scheduling requirements to meet, there is no room for anything less than total organization, especially when you’re scheduling more than one doctor, operating 24/7 and covering a multitude of shifts and locations.
