Healthcare Workforce Productivity Solutions
Employees work best for patients when they can strike a healthy work life balance.
Interflex systems are improving working lives, whilst improving productivity…a win-win scenario.
In their Improving Working Lives Standard the Department of Health recognised that a modern health service requires modern employment services and commitment to providing more flexible working conditions and giving staff more control over their time.
Healthcare providers need to balance the delivery of outstanding patient care and cost-effective use of healthcare resources. Employees represent the single largest budget and therefore effective staff scheduling and utilisation is key. Capturing time & attendance is essential for managing resources effectively, especially when using agency staff and part-time workers.
We are a leading provider of staff scheduling software to the healthcare market, enabling providers to roster employees and manage time and attendance. Whether it is doctor and nurse scheduling or managing the rosters for hospital cleaners, porters and other support staff, an Interflex system can be tailored to your specific needs.
Interflex systems are modular in their construction and can be easily expanded to suit changing needs. They allow access control, time and attendance, absence management and scheduling and rostering to be linked for maximum effectiveness in order to reduce cost and improve productivity.
The timely administration and risk of errors associated with manual scheduling are eliminated and employees have more control over their working patterns. Biometric technology can also be incorporated for additional security as well as to eliminate the costs associated with ‘buddy-punching’.
