Emendo’s CapPlan solution offers the missing link for many of the hospitals we work with, arming nursing and finance leaders with highly accurate labor demand forecasts and visibility to current and projected capacity issues.

Workforce Insight, a leader in healthcare workforce management consulting and implementation services announced today that it has partnered with EmendoHealth to help organizations improve hospital capacity planning through a holistic system that combines demand forecasting, real-time visibility, analytics and workforce alignment.

EmendoHealth and Workforce Insight are currently working with several notable healthcare organizations and hospitals. The partnership will help clients take the guesswork out of forecasting patient demand and more accurately align staff and workflow to improve patient care and operational efficiency.

"Emendo's CapPlan solution offers the missing link for many of the hospitals we work with, arming nursing and finance leaders with highly accurate labor demand forecasts and visibility to current and projected capacity issues" said Ryan Wilson-Flores, MBA, LNFA, National Healthcare Strategist for Workforce Insight. "By leveraging and integrating this data with leading staffing and scheduling solutions, we can help clients realize substantial improvements in patient flow, safety and financial performance within months."

"With unprecedented demand for access to reliable data and increasing legislative pressure, the timing of our partnership couldn't be better" said Arthur Lambert, LHIMSS, Chief of Clinical Systems for EmendoHealth U.S. "Workforce Insight has been the clear partner of choice for hospitals and health systems throughout the U.S., for deployment of sustainable labor productivity and workforce management programs. Their healthcare workforce management consultants come from nursing and finance leadership roles, and are widely known for their success in helping hospitals adopt and transform processes to improve labor cost control."

Leaders from both organizations will be present at the upcoming AONE Conference, in San Diego, April 13-16 where they will share best practice insight, review case studies and highlight trends around hospital demand forecasting and staff resource planning.
