Top 5 Reasons to Use Cloud-Based Physician On-Call Schedules
Creating physician schedules using pen-and-paper or spreadsheets were the best available option early in the 21st century. Now that we’re in the Roaring ’20s, it makes sense to reap the benefits of current cloud-based technology. Here are five reasons you should prioritize adopting cloud-based physician on-call schedules.
1. Readily Accessible
Disseminating paper-based or spreadsheet schedules is time-consuming. Ever-changing distribution lists make maintenance cumbersome, and recipients can’t help but wonder whether they have the most current schedule. In contrast, up-to-date cloud-based physician on-call schedules are accessible around the clock from any internet-connected device.
2. Decentralized Scheduling
The use of pen-and-paper or spreadsheet physician schedules necessitates a “great decoder,” someone who funnels all requests and changes into a master schedule. With cloud-based physician on-call schedules, individual departments and practice groups can create their own schedules, forgoing reliance on a great decoder.
3. Increased Physician Satisfaction
Outdated and inaccurate manual schedules lead to miscommunication. When the wrong physician is contacted, everyone becomes frustrated. Cloud-based physician on-call schedules ensure the right on-call physician is called, one factor in boosting physician satisfaction.
4. Enhanced Patient Care
Timely patient care is critical to their well-being. By ensuring that the right doctor is called the first time, real-time cloud-based physician on-call schedules support faster patient care and better outcomes.
5. Reduced Labor Costs
Cloud-based physician on-call scheduling software reduces labor costs by streamlining scheduling. Having a centralized online scheduling system eliminates duplication of work and redundant processes, resulting in significantly less staff hours to create, maintain, and distribute schedules.
