Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) November 28, 2006
Hospitals utilizing Stay Staffed SmartShift (http://www. staystaffed. com/products. html) technology have reported saving up to $1.6 million a year. The Stay Staffed three-pronged approach to Web-based staffing products and services has revolutionized the way hospital administrators forecast budgets and slash payroll.
"One of the greatest benefits of the Stay Staffed (http://www. staystaffed. com/) program is that it allows the health system to utilize our own staff instead of agency staff," said Amy Farmer, RN, MBA, and staffing manager for Maryland-based Washington County Hospital. "We were at the point where we wanted to find a way to maximize internal resources."
The SmartShift Internal Staffing Management (http://www. staystaffed. com/products. html) (ISM) bidding feature improves employee retention through buy-in and minimizes the actual expense of per diem and traveler staffing. At the same time, the administrative Time Control Management program significantly reduces overtime payroll costs while enhancing budget performance. SmartShift tracks documentation to assist with JCAHO compliance and delivers unit reporting and analysis spreadsheets in real time format.
"It's very convenient. The program allows me to effectively forecast for staff instead of putting out fires last minute," Farmer said.
The Stay Staffed three-pronged approach encompasses Internal Staffing Management (ISM), Vendor Staffing Management (VSM), and the new Candidate Direct product. Candidate Direct is a custom technology platform which eliminates the agency model and results in substantial savings. This single online source permits direct relationships with an unlimited base of qualified candidates and includes value added services such as candidate credentialing; document expiration date notification; payroll, insurance, billing, recruitment, and benefits processing.
