Most groups we talk to before implementing Kimedics are loosely tracking their roster forecasts. As groups grow or expand to work across multiple facilities, more formal roster management is really important to make sure the schedule will get filled and prevent team burnout in cases of shortages.
What type of providers are on your roster?
Our customers rely on a mix of W2 part timers, contractors and sometimes locums to supplement their full-time teams. With so many moving pieces, it is important to track by month where your forecasted shifts are tracking based on your roster of privileged providers. We suggest tracking your total roster available shifts compared to your needed shifts by month.
Keeping a ratio at 105+% available shifts/needed shifts will ensure your schedule will have no issues getting filled in cases of quarantine or other overlapping emergencies or time off.
If you find yourself understaffed, we have built in tools that can help your broadcast shifts.
Share open shifts with your current provider roster (to everyone or a specific few)
Broadcast shifts to providers in your network. If you are a larger group or health system, you can consolidate your provider list and share needs with providers across facilities
