Scheduling Nurses Online
ScheduleAnywhere provides Kaiser Santa Rosa with the tools necessary to ensure proper schedule coverage for its nurses and other medical staff, while tracking their time off, availability, and skills and certifications. Managers, along with the Santa Rosa staffing office, can determine staffing requirements, instantly see coverage gaps, identify available employees, and fill these gaps proactively and better control overtime costs. ScheduleAnywhere also automatically handles shift rotations, which reduces the amount of time nurse managers spend scheduling.
“Atlas Business Solutions is proud to be working with Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa to offer a scalable, facility-wide, web-based scheduling solution that meets their staffing needs,” said Jon Forknell, ABS vice president and general manager. “Saving time and money has always been paramount in healthcare, but even more so now with the current state of the industry. ScheduleAnywhere will help Kaiser Santa Rosa better serve its 113,000 members by reducing unnecessary overtime and streamlining the scheduling of its approximately 1,500 employees.”

With multiple schedules and facilities, the staffing office is able to access all schedules and determine our staffing needs,” said Heather Clemons, Kaiser Santa Rosa Staffing Office. “Knowing staff requirements helps us fill any coverage gaps ahead of time, which helps control our overtime costs. ScheduleAnywhere is very easy to use, and helps us quickly view staff availability, due to sickness or vacation, and shift coverage.
