You’ve likely experienced firsthand the frustration that comes with a bad schedule. And if you talk to any other provider, they could probably also describe what it feels like to be on the losing end of an unfair or unbalanced schedule. Even worse, those providers can probably easily describe what it’s like to be overworked due to inefficient scheduling methods.
You may be concerned that adding a new scheduling software may further complicate things and the change would be too much stacked on top of everything else. But the ideal scheduling software should make every component of scheduling easier.
Today, we’ll cover some quick tips to help you and your team orient to the Shift Admin interface and begin creating more optimized schedules.
Prepare your team
Use Shift Admin to create a schedule and test your configurations and rules. Then, prepare providers with login information along with information on how to use the system once the newly-generated schedule is published.
Work closely with administrators who will be creating or monitoring the schedule and include them in the onboarding process. Their insight and questions can help you configure your scheduling rules to perfectly match your group’s scheduling needs. And while our world-class algorithm is complex, we’ve created a simple, user-friendly interface that everyone can use, making it easier for different users to get exactly what they need when they log in.
Don’t forget: Shift Admin provides a training webinar that teaches the regular, non-admin users everything they need to know about the system in a 15 minute video.

Expect an adjustment period
Whenever you implement any change in a department, it will take time to adjust. Be patient with yourself as you learn the new software, knowing that it is designed to make both the schedule and the schedule-creation process smarter and simpler. Shift Admin’s customizable scheduling algorithm is second to none, and it will create a schedule that benefits the scheduler, group, facility and, ultimately, the patients.
It used to take days or even weeks to create a complex schedule by hand, and those schedules were prone to overscheduled providers and still too many open shifts to fill. Now, your entire staff will benefit from the improved workflow and communication.

Once you’ve finally got all of your customized rules and group levels how you want them, sit back and relax as our powerful generator creates a fully-staffed, optimized schedule in minutes. No more gaps in the schedule, no more overscheduled providers, and no more confusion on which version of the schedule is correct.
