MinuteHound's biometric time clock with cloud-based attendance software is reducing the amount of time nurses and their administrators must spend on attendance issues and increasing the amount of time they can spend on patient care, triage, and health care team collaborations.
Using biometric fingerprint reading technology and an innovative attendance reporting system that can be accessed from anywhere, MinuteHound's latest contribution to the world of attendance monitoring eliminates time cards and complex attendance monitoring in busy nursing environments, significantly increasing nursing efficiency.
Unlike traditional time cards and time card software, MinuteHound's innovative system requires a nurse's fingerprint to log him or her in. This drastically reduces fraud as well as accidents that occur when nurses accidentally clock in/out using the wrong card or number, a common incident that can make attendance tracking difficult and inaccurate for directors of nursing and business managers. Featuring an accurate, automated accounting system, MinuteHound's innovative time clock/attendance keeping software eliminates not only discrepancies in attendance but also the time it takes to sort through time cards or time keeping data, significantly freeing time for directors of nursing and business managers.
However, one of the biggest benefits of Minutehound's system for nurses is the fact that it allows them and their managers to focus on patients rather than time keeping. Directors of nursing and business managers are often called upon to make quick decisions about staffing, offering low census time off in certain cases while calling in on-call and off-the-clock personnel in other cases.
Managers, with the help of nurses, must often make these decisions quickly for two reasons. First, emergency situations often dictate the number of nursing personnel needed on the clock. In an emergency situation, managers/directors of nursing need to be able to see who is and who is not on the clock quickly so they can get the support staff they need in the door as soon as possible, saving lives.
Second, when there are too many nurses on staff, the hospital loses money by paying employees who have nothing to do. Because hospitals need to be good stewards of their money to ensure they can continue to care for patients, it is important that managers/directors of nursing be able to make these decisions quickly.
With traditional systems, the process of calling in employees or granting low census can be complicated and difficult, distracting many workers who should be offering patient care. With MinuteHound's biometric time keeping system with remote attendance monitoring software, managers/directors of nursing can log in to the system anywhere they have internet access and make fast decisions about staffing, saving money, saving time, and saving lives.
