Healthcare employee scheduling

Get more patients back to health by scheduling just the right amount of hands-on help. Build your ideal schedule and keep your medical machine running in peak shape. Employees view their shifts anywhere from their mobile device and receive notifications to remind them—so you don’t have to. Plus, allow teammates to swap and offer shifts, keeping your entire team ahead of unforeseen changes.

Healthcare employee time clock

Track time on the clock and sync with payroll to ensure accurate paychecks and reports, every time. Employees clock in and out of shifts right from their phones, or from a central kiosk. Enable GPS geofencing to verify staff are on site when they clock in. Optimize your schedule by seeing who shows up on time, late, or no-call no-shows. Down-to-the-minute time tracking helps you stay on budget while preventing buddy punching and time theft.

Labor costs for healthcare

Labor is one of the largest expenses for your healthcare business. Make the most of your labor spending by tracking hours worked and setting the most efficient schedules for your crews. Plan ahead of payroll by viewing potential overtime as you schedule. Stay on budget by comparing labor costs to projected and actual revenue, and save the extra help for the times it really matters.

Healthcare employee messaging

Quick and accurate communication is vital to the health of your patients and business. Send private and group messages, create custom newsfeed pages, and deliver company-wide announcements from your desktop or mobile device—instantly. Segment communications by location, group, or however else you need.

Healthcare task management

You’ve hired the best staff—now it’s time to see what they can do. Improve your patients’ experiences and reduce employee confusion by handing out clear assignments. Add tasks specific to any employee or shift so everyone knows what to do. Create a task from scratch and reuse recurring tasks as templates to save time. With task assignments, your team is confident and capable.

Great Scheduling Solution

It is very user-friendly, both for management to create and manage the schedule and for the staff to use it.

Spend less time on healthcare scheduling and more time on your patients

Extremely easy, inexpensive, and comprehensive scheduling tool

Extremely positive; we were lacking an online scheduler and mobile access for about 2 to 3 years and the use of Sling made scheduling much easier (versus pen and paper) and reduced issues due to accidental missed shifts.
