The workforce accounts for nearly 55% of hospital operating costs. Yet, many organizations rely on manual processes or antiquated automation to manage scheduling and workforce-related data. It’s time for a new approach. Based on experience with thousands of clients, API Healthcare has developed a three-phase approach to workforce operational management that delivers both short- and long-term results.
- Phase 1: Build the Foundation – Invest in a standardized, streamlined, automated workforce management system that delivers streamlined workflows for processes such as creating schedules, filling staffing holes and monitoring overtime.
- Phase 2: Leverage the Analytics – Focus on harnessing the data to make better decisions to achieve better productivity, improved retention and recruitment, and elevated employee engagement.
- Phase 3: Transform Workforce Management – With workforce data readily available for better decision-making, the entire organization is empowered to make more accurate predictive decisions that optimize the valuable workforce resources during each and every shift. Gain clarity of vision around the impact that staffing decisions have on both the bottom line and patient outcomes so that effective changes can be made proactively.
Take a look at this video that explains how this transformational approach to workforce management can help your organization move from surviving to thriving.
Compliance with the ADA can be a headache for employers, especially when dealing with employees who are also covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Do you know when and how to transition an employee’s case between the two acts?
To answer all your ADA questions, we’ve published a new whitepaper that guides employers through determining employee eligibility and appropriate accommodation, provides tips on navigating the FMLA-ADA transition, and offers best practices.
API Healthcare has teamed up with Presagia to provide Time and Attendance clients with an integrated solution to help manage compliance with leave and disability regulation, including the FMLA and ADA. Presagia monitors and manages 450 pieces of federal and state legislation and updates these monthly in its Compliance Engine. This helps drive workflow automation and decision support to enhance leave processes and reduce costs, curb absence abuse and improve compliance. Presagia is a featured guest blogger, discussing absence management, disability management and leave compliance. Nothing in this guest post constitutes the provision of legal advice by API Healthcare.
