If you’re like most managers in Aged Care and Healthcare, you will have felt the pain of an unfilled Roster… and the greater pain of trying to fill it at short notice. Sound familiar?
Well, you’re not alone. Having seen hundreds of Aged Care and Hospital Rosters in the past 12 months, we can tell you that its one of the biggest challenges faced by the health professions and a significant block to growth and reform in the industry.
Interestingly, it seems that a lot of the issues occur within organisations that have implemented strong systems, including good (read expensive) online Rostering Systems. These look after many of the aspects of staff management very well, including “back end” functionality such as award interpretation, budgeting and planning.
