Kronos for Non-Acute Practices

The trend is clear – more and more care is taking place in outpatient settings, and outpatient volume is projected to grow 17% over the next several years.1 With value-based care here to stay, non-acute practices will play an increasingly important role in delivering quality, cost-effective care.

To manage surging volume and keep costs low, non-acute practices need to maximize employee productivity – that is, optimize staff schedules so quality care is never compromised and is always cost-efficient. Well-scheduled staff means no one is over- or under-worked, and everyone is engaged in delivering quality care. It means lower turnover rates and more consistent care, and that your workforce is your competitive advantage.

  • Scheduling physician coverage: Ensure the effective and equitable deployment of physicians and other clinician providers – your group, your rules, to build your schedules
  • Increasing operational efficiencies: Enforce absence and leave policies, protect payroll from unearned benefits, and rely on real-time data to take timely corrective action as needed
  • Recruiting and retaining a quality workforce: Provide easy and intuitive self-service options for staff, empowering employees with real-time access to their work data – plus, automate processes like benefits administration, performance reviews, and compensation management
  • Minimizing compliance risk: Automate your workforce management processes to ensure labor regulations and important policies are consistently enforced across your organization, helping maintain ACA compliance

  • Post Acute Care & Senior Living Industry Brief

    More than ever, post acute and senior living care is under a microscope in which success is measured by the quality and cost of care, as well as resident satisfaction. And without an automated workforce management solution, limited visibility into labor productivity and costs makes it difficult to give staff the information and resources they need. And difficult to deliver the cost effective quality care residents count on.

  • Staffing Post-Acute Care and Senior Living Facilities to Meet the Demands of Increasing Acuity

    Post-acute care and senior living providers are facing increased staffing challenges due to higher acuity residents and patients. From a demographic perspective, the over-65 population is expected to double by 2030, and this will place more demands on post-acute care and senior living providers and their staff. This growing over-65 population has a high burden of chronic disease, resulting in increasing acuity levels among residents. Labor is the top source of operating costs for post-acute providers, and managing these costs while striving to staff facilities with the best mix of people and skills to deliver high-quality care appropriate to the workload intensity levels of the resident will become a bigger challenge. These issues make effective workforce management solutions that allow providers to staff specific to workload intensity levels a critical issue.

  • Advanced Home Care Sees $900,000 in Labor and Timing Savings with Kronos for Healthcare

    Advanced Home Care's previous workforce management system and processes were not working, nor was it allowing optimized use of the McKesson Homecare™ solution. Following a patient home visit, employees logged onto a laptop to enter their hours and select a billing code in McKesson. Some clinicians waited until the night before payroll closed to enter 2 weeks of their time and activities. Faulty memories and code misinterpretation led to a 30% error rate. Automating payroll and adding performance management capabilities within its existing system would have been too costly. Using the Kronos solution integrated with McKesson, Advanced Home Care has virtually eliminated paycheck corrections — reducing its compliance risk and increasing productivity — and saves more than $900,000 annually in labor and time.

  • The Value of Evidence-Based Human Resources in Healthcare Organizations

    The latest developments in HR management are about changing the way human resources professionals gather, process, and evaluate information, as well as changing the questions they ask. Often characterized as a “feeling and intuitive” profession — one that relies primarily on observation and instinct rather than data and strategy, human Resource (HR) healthcare executives must evolve from  guardians of the status quo to trailblazers for innovation and growth. Using Evidence-Based Human Resources, HR professionals can now focus on both business strategy and standards of evidence which allows them to demonstrate how “intangible” human capital can be observed and measured, and add tangible business results.
