Workforce costs are a major expense for healthcare organizations. They can account for more than 50% of total operating budgets in most long-term or acute care facilities. One tool for managing these costs effectively is to use a flexible back-office solution designed for your complex healthcare environment. LOKI Systems’ workforce management solutions automate time-consuming processes like scheduling, capturing time, paying employees and analyzing workforce information in the most complex workplace environments. In addition to using these solutions to better manage your costs, you can have more time to focus on the best patient care.
For over 20 years, LOKI Systems has been committed to helping healthcare organizations:
Improve Patient Care
One of the top issues affecting patient care is staffing. Nurses report that the timeliness and quality of care for their patients suffers when their unit is understaffed. With the lives of others in the hands of your healthcare facility, you need to make sure that you have enough staff, but without being overstaffed or over budget. We can provide you with scheduling solutions that increase your flexibility and control to ensure that you have the right people, in the right place, at the right time. With an optimized staff schedule, you will have the just the right amount of people working to reduce overtime costs and maintain a high standard of patient care.
Increase Employee Satisfaction and Retention
Studies show that in the healthcare sector, a critical employee can cost anywhere from $22,000 to $64,000 USD to be replaced. Nurses who feel overworked are also more likely to leave. Decreasing the turnover of your nurses leads to less overtime hours, higher job satisfaction, and a lower probability of medical errors. Implementing schedules that reflect unit requirements while automatically complying with bargaining agreements helps reduce grievances. Increasing employee engagement with web-based self-service tools such as shift trading and updating your availability empowers employees to be part of a great organization. LOKI Systems has a suite of adaptable products that help your acute or long-term care facility improve employee retention rates and patient safety.
Enhance Decision Making
Before making any investment, you need to analyze the right facts. What could you do with detailed, real-time reports on all ofyour workers, hours and activities? By getting insight into your data, and with the ability to create reports in seconds, you will have the information you need to make the best decisions and make them quickly.
