House supervisors like it when they're trying to fill in a shift. I use it for sending reminders for meetings. - Cindy Frank, DON, Madison Co. (IA) Memorial Hospital

Aladtec, a Wisconsin-based provider of cloud-based scheduling and workforce management software, will be among about 50 exhibitors showcasing products and services to healthcare professionals attending the 32nd annual NADONA Conference, June 2-5.
NADONA is the largest annual meeting of nurse executives working in long-term and post-acute care. NADONA represents nurses working in care settings such as assisted living, skilled nursing, mentally challenged/developmentally disabled, and rehabilitation facilities.
Aladtec is a web-based subscription software service that provides flexible staffing tools for hospitals, clinics, group homes, and long-term care facilities. Users create and share complex schedules for multiple departments and allow staff the ability to initiate trades, swaps, log unexpected overtime hours, request PTO and receive shift-reminders - all from a smartphone.
Aladtec also hosts tools that allow supervisors to monitor expiration dates for employee certifications, licenses, and immunizations. Its e-forms capability enables conversion of complex paper forms to e-versions that streamline reporting and record-keeping. The program empowers leadership to fill vacant shifts quickly via text- and email notifications. Managers can monitor hours worked and OT in real time. Time-stamping of any action in the system assures accountability.
Aladtec's reporting function also streamlines Payroll-Based Journal reporting. Our Scheduled Time Report can be customized to regularly generate the staffing and census information required by Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services.
Users have also told us Aladtec is an employee retention tool as staff members appreciate the transparency it provides. They also like the convenience of receiving shift reminders, instantly learning about open shifts, and their ability to request shift-changes or time-off via smartphone.
Aladtec for Healthcare does all of this and more.
Madison County Memorial Hospital, Winterset (IA) has used Aladtec since 2009 to schedule 179 staff members at their 25-bed Critical Access Hospital.
Cindy Frank, Director of Nursing Services, schedules all nurses for the med-surg floor and ED, as well as CNAs. Other managers build schedules for QI, ED, Admissions, Lab, Radiology, Hospice, IT, Maintenance, Patient Accounts, and others. MCMC relies on Aladtec to track employee certifications, licenses, and "every-four-year physical, TB tests, flu shots ...we use it for all of that," said Frank.
"House supervisors like it when they're trying to fill in a shift. I use it for sending reminders for meetings. I like being able to send out an email or a text message at the same time, and hit everybody without having to write 20 different emails," Frank said. "I'm pleased with it. It's pretty user-friendly."
The four-day conference includes a variety of workshops and seminars aimed at educating and enriching caregiving leaders and providers from across the nation.
Sunday morning's keynote speaker is Annie Meehan, an author and certified coach from Minneapolis who speaks under the overarching theme of how to "Be the Exception" in life, business and relationships. She says her favorite work is to inspire audiences to action to be motivated to leave the room ready to make changes to live more of an exceptional life and break the cycles and stories that no longer serve them.
Attending NADONA from Aladtec are Sr. Account Executive Jennifer Driscoll and Support Specialist Moriah Boldon - representatives who specialize in working with hospitals, care facilities, group homes, and other agencies.
The exhibition area will be open from 1 to 3:30 pm on Sunday and Monday. Conference attendees can browse without missing any educational sessions. Aladtec representatives, at Booth #312, will offer participants guided software system demonstrations.
