Healthcare organizations should manage the clinical capacity with patient demand to avoid delays in patient care. To ensure efficient coordination and manage the capacity of all providers and staff in a multi-specialty organization requires an efficient scheduling and communication platform.

The first step to initiate provider scheduling includes:

1. Centralize healthcare shift scheduling platform to schedule providers across the enterprise

Dockyo scheduling takes into account multiple constraints including shift time, preferred providers in a team, labor laws for the shift worked to create schedule across the enterprise, multi-specialty, multi-team settings.

2. Visibility into where providers are working and who are working, including how to contact them quickly.

An intuitive dashboard with transparency across the organization of providers who are working today and how to connect when required. The scheduler view can be integrated with EHR to provide visibility across the organization.

3. Empower providers

For upfront planning of leave and schedule changes. The provider uses Dockyo’s mobile app to submit requests, which are automatically integrated into schedule creation. They can also swap shifts with other team members. A provider can submit requests for shifts which allows the scheduler/planner to meet provider preference to maintain a happy employee engagement.

4. Enable tracking and analysis of how providers are trending towards a target.

Dockyo brings together scheduling & labor data from across the organization to inform effective staffing strategy and provides actionable insight to achieve a continuous cycle of improvement, resulting in reduced costs and increased patient access.

By continuous improvement on your scheduling need, the overall health of your enterprise will continue to be better including patient flow with proper care, increased revenue, and provider job satisfaction.
