Pharmacy Staff Scheduling Software Simplifies Scheduling at Swedish Covenant Hospital
VSS Pro scheduling software saves time, ensures adequate staff coverage, and streamlines scheduling communication for a hospital's pharmacy service and clinical research department.
PR9.NET March 19, 2008 - FARGO, ND – The Pharmacy Service & Clinical Research department at Swedish Covenant Hospital implemented version 10 of Visual Staff Scheduler Pro (VSS Pro) scheduling software from Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. (ABS).
Since the pharmacy department started using VSS Pro scheduling software to manage shift schedules, the Pharmacy Director has dramatically reduced the time it takes to create schedules and maintain schedule changes. "By automatically copying schedule rotations, I cut the time needed to create reoccurring schedules, and any requested or ad-hoc schedule changes can now be made instantly," says Ramesh Patel, Sr. Pharmacy Director at Swedish Covenant Hospital. VSS Pro also improved staff utilization at Swedish Covenant Hospital. "With VSS Pro, I can view instantly the number of hours each person has been scheduled per pay period, which alerts me of any overtime situations," says Patel. In addition, VSS Pro automatically counts the number of staff required versus scheduled. This makes it easy to maintain adequate coverage per specific shift, position, or area of responsibility. The pharmacy department at Swedish Covenant Hospital also benefited from streamlining communication of work schedules. Finalized schedules are emailed directly from VSS Pro shift scheduling software, giving Pharmacy personnel all necessary scheduling information, such as shift start and end time, area of responsibility, and names of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians working during the shift. "VSS Pro gives us a way to provide our staff with accurate and easy-to-read schedules. The messy and confusing shift schedules are now a thing of the past," adds Patel.
