AltaPointe Health Systems staff members will soon realize numerous improvements in how they can electronically manage their benefits, internal employment opportunities, work schedules and various other job-related functions, thanks to a new human resource software system.

AltaPointe’s Human Resources Department has been engaged for several months in the implementation of API Healthcare, an HR information software system that will allow the department to streamline all its processes through a single solution.

“While many of our HR functions are already handled electronically, there are actually five different systems in place, which poses a number of challenges,” Alicia Donoghue, human resources director explained. “With API Healthcare, everything will be in a single system resulting in much greater efficiency.”

API is not just integrated within itself, but with other patient-care systems to give supervisors detailed data right at their fingertips, which in turn will make forecasting daily staffing decisions more efficient. The benefits trickle down to the employee by giving them more flexibility with schedules, as well as access to self-service features.

Through API, employees will potentially be able to access their schedules, correct missing punches, view benefit balances, ask for time off, pick up shifts, and trade shifts all from the time clock, according to Donoghue.

"So many people are doing so many different things in human resources," Donoghue. "API brings them all together. Using a system like this to drive company efficiency translates to better patient care and employee satisfaction because that is where you can begin to focus you efforts and resources."

AltaPointe is Alabama’s largest regional community behavioral health provider with more than 1,000 clinical and non-clinical staff members who serve more than 20,000 children, adolescents and adults annually.
