Many long term care homes face a unique, not often discussed challenge – scheduling.

Traditional scheduling methods, such as putting pen to paper and making phone calls, are still being utilized by the long term care industry. This lowers productivity, creates a stressful “uncertain” environment that leads to burnout and high turnovers, and allows room for error and confusion. Visibility into shifts is reduced, shift-swaps miscommunicated and available last-minute shifts left unclaimed.

As technology progresses, more and more solutions become readily available to help combat these challenges. They are designed to better communication via text, email or in-app, notify staff to available shifts, integrate your payroll and work as web-based subscriptions. Here are a few solutions:
