You need a way to successfully manage work schedule conflicts so you don’t spend endless administrative hours working on scheduling issues.
Home health services run 24 hours a day, every day of the year. This intrinsically makes shift planning and schedule management problematic.
The use of technology for personal communication has always been discouraged while employees are on the clock. However, that doesn’t mean cell phones don’t have their place in the work field.
Traditional methods of communication within a company, such as emails or phones calls, are no longer effective. Employees are bombarded with emails on a daily basis which leaves important or last-minute messages overlooked or opened later than intended.
The key to ensuring your clients will receive the care they deserve is to find a way to cover shifts as soon as an open shift is uncovered. Workforce management apps work to organize your pool of available workers and help you navigate to those who are most likely to cover the shift.
