Automation and the use of AI to streamline and innovate scheduling practices not only create operational savings, but it also gives valuable time back to scheduling staff which can be used toward more meaningful work. In working closely with our Healthcare customers, we understand the demands on scheduling staff, and what aspects of the jobs and tasks associated with scheduling prove to be most challenging.
The following outlines some of these challenges and showcases how Andgo’s solutions can help.
Avoid burnout due to repetitive manual tasks
Employee burnout is becoming more and more common amongst all types of organizations. Within the scheduling environment, burnout tends to occur when scheduling staff is overburdened with tasks, especially when they are remedial in nature.
Andgo can help reduce scheduling staff burnout by automating a large number of remedial, often mundane, and manual workflows. This allows for scheduling staff to focus on more meaningful, thoughtful tasks that create value.
Healthcare scheduling can be a very stressful occupation. Stress factors related to scheduling usually stem from an overwhelming workload which can have far-reaching effects throughout the organization. When shifts are not filled, departments are not fully or appropriately staffed. This means that patients might not get the care that they require. The consequences of errors or missed workflows can be critical, which can cause a lot of stress for all healthcare workers.
Andgo’s ability to automate the absence management and employee communication process from end-to-end significantly reduces time-consuming jobs and tasks. This saves scheduling staff time and allows them to continuously add value.
Eliminate employee boredom and associated negative effects
Boredom in the workplace is often prevalent but rarely discussed. Causes of boredom in the workplace can result from having to perform repeated and remedial work, not finding meaning in tasks performed, and feeling burdened by work volumes. The consequences of workplace boredom are increases in workplace accidents and errors, depression, anxiety, and disconnection between the employee and the organization.
Andgo can help reduce workplace boredom in the following ways:
- Automating workflows, eliminating a large number of remedial tasks and providing a clear and comprehensive processing dashboard for scheduling staff
- Workflows can be customized to provide job differentiation rules allowing for employees to benefit from more variety in their shift work (ex. Inter-departmental shift variability)
