Pharmacy streamlines staff scheduling with ScheduleAnywhere

Fargo, N.D. (December 20, 2018) – Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. announces that Sun Life Family Health Center, Casa Grande, Ariz., has implemented ScheduleAnywhere as their pharmacy department’s staff scheduling solution. ScheduleAnywhere online employee scheduling software makes it possible to schedule and coordinate with employees from any computer or mobile device.

ScheduleAnywhere replaces the pharmacy’s previous scheduling software, which did not allow employees to view schedules or communicate online. Schedules were managed on site, and time-off and other scheduling requests were made via email or telephone. Under the new software system, schedules can be developed, managed and viewed remotely by anyone with permission.

“Requests were often missed, resulting in last-minute changes,” said Jared Hatchard, PharmD, Community Pharmacy Operations Manager. “Not only was this frustrating for the staff, it also meant I was spending several hours per week making adjustments for time-off requests and callouts. Now, employees can make schedule requests online, and they can see the updated schedule as it’s posted instead of waiting for the latest printed version. Additionally, pharmacists can easily contact per diem employees for last-minute coverage needs, and it only takes seconds for me to adjust the schedule accordingly.”

In addition to online employee access, streamlined scheduling and improved communication, Sun Life also considered price and ease-of-use when comparing scheduling software options. They found ScheduleAnywhere to be a cost-effective solution that was easy to learn and implement. The system is intuitive, and new features are added automatically, eliminating the need for additional software purchases or installation.

Hatchard adds that with ScheduleAnywhere, he now can copy schedules or rotations, giving him more time to focus on clinically-relevant core responsibilities.

“The schedule copying feature has been one of the system’s most valuable tools for me,” he said. “It’s reduced the time required to manually enter shifts and allows me to copy schedules far into the future for repeating schedules.”

Additionally, ScheduleAnywhere allows visibility of multiple schedules across the entire organization. This ensures there are no scheduling conflicts or double booking of an employee who works in multiple departments or locations.
