Share Article

QHR Software helping Manitoba health organizations to standardize workforce reporting, policies and processes across the Province.

We are looking forward to this partnership. Full integration of all of our Human Resources IT systems will be instrumental in achieving our objectives. Quadrant HR will allow us to better manage our business process and meet new challenges. QHR's previous experience in the complex health care environment makes us confident that we are getting value for our investment.

QHR Software Inc., creator of Quadrant HR software solutions, has begun a Human Resource Standardization Initiative with Manitoba Health, the Labour Relations Secretariat and the Regional Health Authorities.

The project's objective is to facilitate consistent practices and reporting metrics and measurements in healthcare organizations throughout the Province. To achieve this goal, the stakeholders will work together to leverage Quadrant HR and identify business processes, reports and workflows which can be standardized.

"We believe that the partnership with Manitoba Health, the regional health authorities and QHR Software will have enormous benefits to all of us. Standardized, regular reports using QHR software should lighten the requirements of overloaded HR staff," says Terry Goertzen, Executive Director, Workforce Policy and Planning with Manitoba Health. "Developing common reporting standards around key HR data is an important step in planning for the health workforce of tomorrow," he added.

The objectives identified in the three-phase project include identifying and prioritizing reports and processes that will benefit all regions. Some examples include:
1. Development of an annual nursing vacancy report.
2. Develop a QHR Reports Standard for all regions to fulfill Manitoba Health requests.
3. Develop a process to consistently identify employee contacts for emergency planning purposes (e.g. in the event of a Pandemic such as the Avian flu virus).
4. Address the capacity of disability management reporting.

The initiative will enable the Regional Health Authorities to stay on track to achieving standardized workforce policies and processes across the Province.

Regional standardization will benefit all those involved to better manage business process and prepare for the future.

Jason Marchand, Vice President of Support Services and Human Resources at Brandon Regional Health Authority says, "We are looking forward to this partnership. Full integration of all of our Human Resources IT systems will be instrumental in achieving our objectives. Quadrant HR will allow us to better manage our business process and meet new challenges. QHR's previous experience in the complex health care environment makes us confident that we are getting value for our investment."

The relationship between QHR, Manitoba Health and the regions continue to strengthen and evolve as QHR has become a vendor of choice within the Province. QHR is either working with or in contract negotiations with every Manitoba region. The majority of the regions are 'live' with Payroll and Staff Scheduling. Working together to deliver quantifiable results is a priority for all to ensure maximum impact of investment, better Provincial visibility and a common framework for all to leverage.
