Billings Clinic Improves Efficiency with ScheduleAnywhere

Fargo, N.D. (April 4, 2019) – Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. announces that Billings Clinic, of Billings, Mont., has selected ScheduleAnywhere as its staff scheduling solution for its rehabilitation and sports medicine services department. ScheduleAnywhere online scheduling software is ideal for any organization that schedules shifts, including hospitals, clinics, pharmacies and long-term care facilities.

The software makes it possible to schedule and communicate with employees from any computer or mobile device and replaces the department’s paper scheduling method, which offered on-site only accessibility. With the new software system, schedules can be developed, managed and viewed remotely from any computer or mobile device. 

“Before we began using ScheduleAnywhere, the staff’s access to the schedule was limited,” said Joe Bloyder, PT CSCS, who manages the hospital and clinic’s rehabilitation departments. “Now, the staff can view the schedule anytime, and using the mobile app they can check PTO availability, trade shifts and communicate changes.”

Managers can give employees read-only access, or they can grant permission for employees to make time-off, cover and swap requests. Managers can immediately see whether there are any conflicts and accept or deny the request. If approved, the schedule is updated automatically and each employee whose schedule was affected will receive a notification.

ScheduleAnywhere allows managers to schedule multiple employees in one step, as well as copy schedules or rotations, so repetitive information does not need to be entered more than once.

“I create and manage schedules for 96 employees,” said Bloyder, “so I appreciate the fact that once the data is inputted into the program it only requires simple updating. This has cut the time I spend on scheduling by about eight to ten hours per week.”

Schedules can be shared across the entire organization, so managers in different departments and locations can view shared employees’ schedules and can track total hours scheduled. Additionally, ScheduleAnywhere performs staffing calculations based on census counts or acuity numbers and calculates hours per patient day to ensure proper shift coverage and staffing ratios.
