'I like being able to send out an e-mail and/or a text message at the same time, and hit everybody without having to write 20 different emails.' -- Cindy Frank, Director of Nursing Services, Madison County (IA) Memorial Hospital.
PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) October 19, 2018
Aladtec, a Wisconsin-based provider of cloud-based scheduling and workforce management software, will be among about 500 exhibitors showcasing products and services to healthcare professionals attending the LeadingAge Annual Meeting and Expo, Oct. 29-31.
The event is sponsored by LeadingAge, a non-profit Washington D.C. based advocacy group whose mission is to be "the trusted voice for aging."
The 6,000-plus members and partners include not-for-profit organizations representing the entire field of aging services, 38 state partners, hundreds of businesses, consumer groups, foundations, and research partners.
Aladtec provides hospitals, clinics, group homes, and long-term care facilities with flexible staffing tools. Create and share complex schedules for multiple departments. Allow staff the ability to initiate trades, swaps, 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 e-mail notifications. Managers can monitor hours worked and OT in real time. Time-stamping 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 appreciates the transparency it provides, the convenience of receiving shift reminders and news about open shifts and to request shift-changes or time-off for themselves.
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 e-mail and/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.”
