CHALLENGE: NURSE STAFFING RATIOS & PATIENT ACUITY

Lack of visibility into future patient demand leaves health systems struggling to balance utilization of nursing staff across the enterprise while ensuring patients receive an appropriate level of quality care. In addition, unexpected emergency room and inpatient surges along with nursing shortages can leave hospital units understaffed and unit leaders scrambling to ensure appropriate coverage. The demanding nature of nursing, along with unpredictable and ever-changing schedules, leads to excessive overtime and low job satisfaction for nurses, which in turn results in significant turnover and retention issues.

SOLUTION: STAFFING SOFTWARE FOR HOSPITALS

Hospital IQ’s Staffing solution provides increased visibility into current and future staffing needs across an entire health system, giving nursing unit leaders the time and insight to proactively identify staffing gaps. With transparency into staffing needs across all units, Hospital IQ enables nursing leaders to improve the utilization of their staff, ensuring the right nurse is deployed to the right unit and assigned to the right patient at the right time. The result is improved staff alignment, enhanced quality of care, increased staff satisfaction and decreased labor costs.

into Staffing Needs

Hospital IQ delivers nursing leaders with predictive insights and daily situational awareness to effectively allocate staff based on each patient’s individual needs. Visibility to patient acuity, unit-level patient needs, and staff capabilities allows for a faster, more flexible, and specialized approach when allocating staff and creating care assignments.

Align Staff to Patient Demand

Hospital IQ enables nurse managers to accurately adjust department and float pool staff days in advance, reducing last-minute call-ins or call-offs and reliance on premium pay decreases. This ensures appropriate patient coverage hours or days before a labor crisis develops resulting in better patient care, a balanced workload, reduced premium pay costs, and increased staff satisfaction.
