How We’re Helping

Scheduling Adjustments for COVID-19

In recent weeks, our application consultants have been assisting clients from leading health systems and practices across the country to adjust their schedules to aid their response efforts to COVID-19. Here’s how we are helping:

  • Scheduling between 50 and 300 providers “on the fly” as capacity needs change.

  • Add “overflow” slot to schedule backup providers when necessary.

  • Added another nocturnist shift for COVID-19 concerns.
  • Changed scheduling period from 3 months to 1 month.
  • Adding providers from other departments to help staff.
  • Using shift reasons and locations to identify COVID-19 scheduling.
  • Added 300 providers from the flex float pool to areas based on demand.
