What The Right Clock Systems For Hospitals Should Look Like.

by Seamfix

What happens when employees don’t clock in to work? Now, what happens when doctors don’t clock in to work?

Employee absenteeism can be a huge loss for any organization, especially in hospitals where workers are mission-critical and in-patient healthcare facilities require around-the-clock human supervision. The need for effective time management cannot be overemphasized as everything in the hospital is time sensitive. A second delay by an on-call doctor or front-line nurse can have a colossal effect on patient care and become costly to overall healthcare. Any more delay would mean that already tired healthcare providers that should be clocking out of their shifts would have to endure increased workload, which would cause them to burn out, and not only is this bad for the patients, burnout can lead to more absenteeism in the hospital that already suffer workforce shortages.

Yes, effective time management is needed in hospitals, however keep in mind that effective time management is also very complex. This is because healthcare professionals often do not work a normal eight-hour shift or a consistent schedule. Without careful scheduling management, the mistake of scheduling more people than necessary is very likely which would increase operating costs and eventually capsize labor budgets. Even more, having to meet the demands of the complex scheduling, if done manually, would take its toll on the responsible party and eat into time that should be spent on other tasks.

Code Red! A time and attendance solution is needed, stat!

Clocking in systems for hospitals will allow management easily supervise time and attendance of on-call health providers and contingent workforce to know who resumes at work, when and where. It gives the management team insights into staff attendance behaviors to help make better decisions on policies and costs. Attendance software goes beyond supervision to automating the way schedules are created, to ensure that labor demands of each shift are met without going over payroll hours.

What should the right clock systems for hospitals look like?

Clock systems for hospitals that will address the complexities of the healthcare workforce must have these important capabilities:

  1. Mobile Clock in/out: A large number of healthcare providers travel to patients’ homes to tend to them or work as long-term aides outside the hospital. Mobile time and attendance solutions ensure that these workers can clock in and out for these appointments anywhere they are and the needed information will be captured and sent to the admin.
  2. Real-time Reports and Analytics: The management team must be fed with insights on time and attendance behaviors of the workers. This will enable them to make smart data-driven attendance policies and payroll decisions to reduce wasted wages.
  3. No human Interference: Efficient organization of information on a screen to allow admins easily view, track and manage all of the reports in one simplified format without help from humans, eliminating any chance for mishandling.
  4. Flexible: It must be able to accommodate the complexities of healthcare attendance policies, and can be changed as often as policies change.
  5. Geo-location: The solution must ensure that when employees clock in and out from the field, their locations can be verified and pinpointed in real-time to prove that they are actually where they say they are.
