Solutions for Nurse scheduling
Nursing Case

The majority of hospitals are still using paper-based systems of scheduling. In order to optimize patient care hospitals often use predictive analytics, but still use outdated means to schedule staff. Poor scheduling affects overall staff morale, which leads to poor patient experience and satisfaction.
