In a rapidly changing healthcare landscape, where the caregiver's well-being is compromised by factors like burnout and heavy workloads, the very core of health service delivery is at risk - high-quality patient care. Understanding and addressing compounding implications is essential: among others, emergency departments are shutting down due to personnel shortages and dedicated nurse staff is reconsidering their position in the labor force.
Now, more than ever, hospitals and other health facilities must rethink their workforce management. Integrating technology that enhances day-to-day operations is not just an option, it's an imperative. Hospitals and other health facilities can substantially increase the value derived from their workforce by optimizing care provider utilization while judiciously employing agencies when needed. With a focus on efficiency, adaptability, and support, Petal Health introduces new capabilities specific to nurses in its Capacity Management suite, including scheduling and automated nurse callout features. These solutions help create an environment where nurses and other health professionals can experience work-life balance and contribute effectively to patient care, easily navigating schedules and shifts.
