As a physician, you have multiple responsibilities. You have responsibilities at the hospital (perhaps at multiple hospitals) and at the same time, you must manage your own practice. You may even be responsible for other medical facilities such as a clinic or surgery center.
To meet all of your responsibilities, you have to be organized. Scheduling your own time and that of your staff plays a critical role. Yet you don’t have time to spend hours developing a schedule for your hospital shift and office hours.
ShiftPlanning is a powerful scheduling tool that you can customize to meet your needs. You’ll save money and time so that you can focus on what’s really important–your patients. Sign up for a free ShiftPlanning trial today and enjoy better control over your schedule.

I have recommended ShiftPlanning to colleagues and staff looking for an easy way to manage teams and group schedules. Most came to me after learning I had implemented an easy and intuitive scheduler and wanted to know more.
The very nature of creating and managing office and hospital work schedules for physicians 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.
ShiftPlanning’s custom installation and set-up allows every physician scheduling demand to be met. Whether there are two or three hospital shifts to cover in each 24-hour cycle, in addition to office hours and surgery scheduling, ShiftPlanning provides the powerful tools you need to cover any combination of scheduling needs for the busiest doctors, efficiently and easily.
