Staff assignment in hospital units can be time-consuming, complex and, if not skillfully executed, can undermine the effectiveness of your clinical staff. Despite the adoption of interoperability standards across the spectrum of healthcare systems, clinical leadership often is required to redundantly schedule staff in many of the systems deployed within their units even though the staff-to-patient/room assignments are generally the same.
Critical Alert Nurse Call is now fully integrated with Kronos OptiLink, a leading staff scheduling and workforce management solution for healthcare organizations. Clinical leadership can schedule staff in a single solution and have those assignments automatically distributed to the CommonPath Nurse Call Solution.
The staff assignments are then passed to Critical Alert where the corresponding room and mobile communications device assignments are automatically captured for nurse call.
